The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis

The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis consist of one side of a correspondence between a bureaucratic demon and his agent trying to tempt a soul. This was originally published in 1942.

Interesting discussion of Christianity follows from the oppositions perspective. There were a few things that the book helped explain as far as Christianity is concerned. So I found it useful for that. There were even some non-subtle criticisms of the wartime government of Britain thrown into it.

I did have some issues though. The thing that really stuck out was that Lewis really doesn't think much of women as a gender.

Recommended if you're interested in this sort of thing.

Is available through Abebooks.
