Présentation de l'éditeur
A milestone in the history of popular theology, The Screwtape Letters is an iconic classic on spiritual warfare and the dynamics of temptation.
This profound and striking narrative takes the form of a series of letters from Screwtape, a devil high in the Infernal Civil Service, to his nephew Wormwood, a junior colleague engaged in his first mission on earth, trying to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Although the young man initially looks to be a willing victim, he changes his ways and is "lost" to the young devil.
Dedicated to Lewis's friend and colleague J. R. R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is a timeless classic on spiritual conflict and the psychology of temptation which are part of our religious experience.

pas de lavage de cerveau chrétien, mais une réflexion très intelligente sur le dynamiques humaines.
C.S. Lewis n'est pas une référence pour rien

Don't worry about reading about the devil, as I was concerned with when I started to read it. But the more you read it the better and closer relationship you can develop with God, which of course is what Mr. Lewis has intended.
The author is pure genius. I have read Mere Christianity, The problem with pain amd A Grief Observed. I have also read his space trilogy Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra and That Hideous Strength; which are all wonderful.
Word of warning, A Grief Observed is a difficilt, depressing book. DO NOT READ IT if you are grieving about anything or one.
I hope this helps and helps people discover the genius, as I have, of C. S. Lewis.
This is not an easy read. It's not light or fluffy. Yes, it's a "satire," it's almost sarcastic, but it's still very thought provoking. I re-read so many passages because something would hit me so hard, I would need to read it again to make sure that I was understanding it properly.
Now I'm a religious person. I know that Satan is real. I know he has "devil's" who go about his awful work the same way God has "angels" going about His work. I believe I know a bit about how Satan works because he has done his best to tempt me to do wrong and many times succeeded. This novel was an interesting and, I personally believe, realistic take on how Satan goes about his work.
This book is good for any adult to read who is interested in expanding their knowledge of how Satan goes about trying to tear us, as humans, down and apart (individually and from each other).
During a series of instructional letters Screwtape gives step by step instruction to leading this human being down the path to damnation. Wormwood being an inexperienced tempter is sometimes chastised and at other times encouraged in his demonic antics. Screwtape shows to one and all that demonic acts can be cleverly disguised and will lead the faltering human to continue bad acts but without the person feeling any guilt or sense that he is doing something wrong which will lead him down below instead of high above.
Screwtape gets aggravated when Wormwood takes the easy ways of temptation which shows laziness and lack of attention to demonic detail. The forces of good are called the “enemy” in which Screwtape has much respect for and inspires Screwtape to be even more devious and hard on his young trainees such as Wormwood. His letters showed herein reinforces the forces of the devil are still very much among us.
