A modern-day take on one of C.S. Lewis’ most renowned novels, Screwtape Letters. Andrew Farley, bestselling author of God Without Religion and The Naked Gospel, does an exemplary job in modifying the ideas and teachings of C.S. Lewis to fit into our culture today, revealing the weaknesses and temptations to which Christians are prone in ways that are more relevant and applicable. Written from a demon’s point of view, Operation Screwtape is a set of instructions addressed to demonic forces in waging war against the “Enemy” (God) by stealing, killing, and destroying the mind, body, and spirit of all “patients” (Christians). In a counterintuitive manner, Farley exposes the reader to ways Christians may be prone to evil such as doubt, fear, and insecurity in very practical ways, thus creating more awareness of areas in which we must tread lightly. Though fiction, this book recognizes the reality of spiritual warfare and the power Satan can wield over us, if we allow. Stressing the gospel, the author reminds us of grace: that we are holy, we are free, and we are resurrected with Christ.
