A literary review of C.S. Lewis’ classic book, “The Screwtape Letters.”

Dove Review

The writings of C.S. Lewis are known as some of the great literary works of the 20th century. Lewis was at one time a self-proclaimed atheist, but was greatly influenced to come back to the faith of his childhood by his service in World War I, as well as his studies at Oxford and his friend J. R. R. Tolkien.

“The Screwtape Letters” features imaginative letters between devils, the struggle between good and evil, and the systematic corruption of man’s soul. This film, “Affectionately Yours, Screwtape: The Devil and C.S. Lewis,” is a fascinating exploration of biblical, cultural and historical depictions of hell and its demons throughout the ages.

Fans of Lewis and those who are intrigued by his writings and influence over the past century will find this documentary an interesting look at his timeless classic. He seeks to answer age-old questions that have been wrestled with through the ages. We are pleased to approve this modern look at a timeless classic for viewers age 12 and above.
