The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis

From the book, The Screwtape Letters:  “A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over 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 gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.  The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation-and triumph over it-ever written.”

As I mentioned, I will be adding excerpts from this book for a while, because it’s the best writing I have found which portrays the tactics of the enemy of our souls.  

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8
