Summary

The only official sequel, penned by Lewis himself, to the ever-popular Screwtape Letters - published alongside other short essays.

One of the most popular books ever to come from the pen of C. S. Lewis was written in the name of Screwtape, a senior devil experienced in the art of luring his 'patients' on earth to their own damnation in service of 'our father below' - and training others to do the same.

Screwtape's correspondence with his nephew, an apprentice devil, came into Lewis' hands, he said, by a route he would not disclose, and many a listener has finished the collection longing for more of the insights they gained from its wisdom.

Much to Lewis' resistance, this after-dinner speech, given by Screwtape to a graduating class of demons at a college in hell, came to light a few years after the publication of the original letters. Now, 75 years later, the speech is reproduced in full once more along with a short collection of Lewis' other lesser-known but perennial works.

Many people will have forgotten about the only official sequel that exists to Screwtape; the 75th anniversary of Screwtape's publication is the perfect opportunity to bring this back.

Critic reviews

"I find I am constantly realising that I owe many of my most basic convictions about Christian faith to Lewis's imagination." (Rowan Williams)

I agree

As always CS Lewis delivers his points with precision.

"He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God alone".

Breathtaking

This was not what I was expecting having enjoyed the previous book. However it was quite brilliant and very thought-provoking.
