"The Screwtape Letters": An Endeavor

Today I will begin the marvelous journey of outlining and documenting C.S. Lewis' fine work, The Screwtape Letters, which is a fictional work depicting a series of letter written between a more experienced demon, Screwtape, and his younger nephew, Wormwood, as Wormwood attempts to corrupt a soul. 

To understand this book, or any book, I recommend first learning a little about the author. 
And so, I have included the wikipedia article for your edification. Though brief, and insufficient in capturing the grandeur of Mr. Lewis, I found that this article was apt enough for my own purposes. 

I hope, if you hopefully intend to read along, that you will enjoy and participate in discussion of key themes and topics. This vain desire, however doesn't necessarily mean that you won't necessarily enjoy reading my summaries and reflections, due to Lewis' habit of capturing life's issues and truths often in his works.

Having said as much, I hope you will enjoy and participate. Best of luck in all you do.


  1. I am very excited for this blog. I have already read The Screwtape Letters so I will try to contribute.

  2. Awesome! I am looking forward to it as well, the second part is only about the preface. I haven't gotten to content yet, so we shall see...
