The Screwtape Letters is a Christian apologetic novel. It is written in a satirical, epistolary style and while it is fictional in format, the plot and characters are used to address Christian theological issues, primarily those to do with temptation and resistance to it. The story takes the form of a series of letters from a senior Demon Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood, a Junior Tempter. The uncle's mentorship pertains to the nephew's responsibility for securing the damnation of a British man known only as "the Patient". In The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis provides a series of lessons in the importance of taking a deliberate role in Christian faith by portraying a typical human life, with all its temptations and failings, seen from devils' viewpoints. Lewis wrote the sequel Screwtape Proposes a Toast - a critique of certain trends in British public education (Although Britain calls its major private schools "public schools", Lewis is referring to state schools when he criticizes "public education"). Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was a British novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, lay theologian and Christian apologist. He is best known for his fictional work, especially The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy, and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain.

The Screwtape Letters, a satirical novel that focuses on the religious struggle of one unnamed man, is one of the most influential works of C.S. Lewis. The story unfolds through the eyes of Screwtape, a highly placed under-secretary to Lucifer, affectionately known as 'Our Father Below'. Through a series of letters addressed his nephew, Wormwood, a young demon tasked only with securing the hellish eternity of the anonymous man, Screwtape bestows knowledge on how to capture a soul. Throughout his letters to Wormwood, we learn that the religious peaks and valleys of Wormwood's patient are set against the backdrop of wartime England. Originally published in book form in early 1942, World War II plays a big part in the novel. Screwtape himself does not pay much heed to war and advises his nephew to do the same, but the human patient faces seemingly endless German bombing raids and the uncomfortable daily reminder that he is mortal and can die at just about any moment. The war, in fact, ultimately plays a pivotal role in sealing the patient's eternity.

My Dear Bitterroot, Let me take a moment to congratulate you on graduating with low honors from the Training College for Tempters. I trust you've received my gift. He was one of my signature catches, and has been cultivating over these long years. This one is a slow sip vintage. I've been saving him for a special occasion. I present him as a gift to you, on this, the beginning of what we all expect will be a stellar career. Let this caged prize also serve as a peace offering between us. That little incident with your brother Wormwood, well, it's all water under the bridge now. I'm told that the New House of Correction for Incompetent Tempters is a modern facility. The inmates, I mean guests, only undergo periodic worm visitations, until the Day of Feeding begins... Did you know that I once gave a toast at your old school? Well, I'll tell you all about it at our next family reunion, though there will be an empty chair since your brother won't be joining us this year...After you're settled, give me a full account of your patient, Your affectionate uncle SCREWTAPE
