Alright, I was tempted to shelve this under "proaganda" or some-such but I've settled for "literature". I wd've read some of Lewis's fantasy as a kid - "The Chronicles of Narnia" or some such - & enjoyed it - probably w/o realizing how heavily imbued w/ Christian symbolism it all was. Then, thank god, once I became an atheist, & I tried rereading some of it or reading a new volume or whatever & cdn't stand it at all - it seemed so heavy-handed. "The Screwtape Letters" was the last thing I read by him. Even as an atheist I enjoyed this one. I thought it was clever & entertaining. Maybe a reading of it cd make an alternative soundtrack to the porn movie "The Devil in Miss Jones" - or whatever it was called. Can Christians "turn over in their graves"? I mean how cd C. S. Lewis turn over in his grave if he's in Heaven?
