Synopsis

The Screwtape Letters by C.S.  Lewis is a classic masterpiece of religious satire that entertains readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below." At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

Discerning Reader

Also in this brief preface Lewis warns the reader against taking everything Screwtape says at face value, and to disregard the chronology of the letters, as demons generally disregard human chronology except as it impacts upon their diabolical schemes.
