Returning to a book that I read while in High School, I better appreciate the theological discussions CS Lewis addresses. Stylistically, this book shows the brilliance of CS Lewis as he introduces practical theology in a very creative manner. Even the preface shows his wit.
As Screwtape, a demon tries to train up his nephew on how to undercut a man’s faith development.
Particularly interesting was Lewis jabs at Historical Criticism and how an emphasis upon Social Justice moves it from a response to the gospel to a false gospel. Written fifty years ago it’s amazing how relevant his critiques are and how much our society has only rapidly escalated many of the same issues.
