5.0 out of 5 stars A book that every Christian should read, 20 April 2004
This review is from: Selected Poems (Audio Cassette)
His Abysmal Sublimity Under-Secretary Screwtape is an old experiencedtempter, a highly respected expert in his field. And so, Screwtape takestime out of his hellishly busy schedule to send letters of advice to hisnephew, Wormwood, who is shepherding along his first human. This book is acollection of Screwtape's letters, giving sound advice on how a Christiancan be steered away from Heaven, and safely delivered to Hell. Along theway, the reader is treated to some of the most profound Christianreasoning that I have ever read!
To put it succinctly, this book is without a doubt one the greatest (ifnot THE greatest) works of practical Christian living that was everwritten. C.S. Lewis's use of a demon giving advice to his nephew is simplyinspired, allowing him to mix deep theology and reasoning with upbeat (andoffbeat) humor. I loved the book, and I love this audio version of it -John Cleese does an excellent job of playing Screwtape, adding in theemotions the role deserves, and now I can't even imagine anyone else doingit.
This is a great book, one that every Christian should read (or listen to)at least once in his or her life, and maybe even read on a regular basis.I've listened to it five times in a row, and want to hear it some more.This is practical Christianity!
