Read in April, 2008

I first read this book my freshman year, after receiving it as a gift from a roommate, a sweet and wonderful atheist. I’m now returning to this book after attending a play of this novel. I think I had a brief period where I didn’t really read C.S. Lewis—perhaps a slight aversion to his extreme trendiness in Christian circles—but sometimes trends are not always bad, and at this point, I’d call C.S. Lewis a classic, not a trend. His writing is so clear and concise (something that so many modern writers lack). His insight both into the kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world, and us humans who are stuck navigating between the two, is incredible. This book is a compilation of letters written by a senior demon to his nephew, giving him advice on how to tempt a recent convert to Christianity back into Satan’s camp.
