Passage to Wisdom

"Humans are always putting up claims to ownership which sound equally funny in Heaven and in Hell." "Mine" is a word of enslaving desire, "Gift" is a word that liberates the soul. In this series, Passage to Wisdom, John reflects on passages from books that have found particular influence in his life. Today we look at 'The Screwtape Letters' by C.S. Lewis. This 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.
