The Screwtape Letters - C.S. Lewis - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Screwtape Letters:

Just a few letters between demons.

My favorite C.S. Lewis quote from the book:

"A thousand bawdy, or even blasphemous, jokes do not help towards a man’s damnation so much as his discovery that almost anything he wants to do can be done, not only without the disapproval but with the admiration of his fellows, if only it can get itself treated as a Joke."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you believe in demons?

What do you feel you have the right to?

My review of The Screwtape Letters:

I loved the conversation!

I loved the philosophical implications!

I love the fact that demons can lose the fight completely!
