Reading The Screwtape Letters was, for me, a challenge that made The Elegance of the Hedgehog seem like a piece of cake. Everything that God and religion advise man to do to attain
Heaven, is twisted by a devil named Screwtape. In a series of letters to his underling devil/ nephew, Woodworm, Screwtape teaches him how to divert a human "patient" toward hell through this wretchedly self-centered philosophy. In sentences so convoluted and deep, Lewis' brilliance far exceeds my ability to grasp the logic, resulting in my having to now acquire the Screwtape Letters study guide.

Mj Good for you for plugging through The Screwtape Letters! I think I will forgo that. I did read a biography of S. C. Lewis. That was interesting, but difficult to get through.
