About the Book



"Originally published in 1952 by Harcourt Brace"--Title page verso.



Book Synopsis



A repackaged edition of the revered author's anthology of satirical yet serious essays on evil.

In these spirited essays, C. S. Lewis--the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics--discusses evil in the world. Blending irony, humor, and paradox, he tackles religion's most difficult and intriguing questions regarding immorality, belief, and the meaning of prayer. Best of all, the infamous Screwtape makes a special cameo appearance in this funny and poignant collection.



From the Back Cover



In these seven satirical yet poignant essays, C. S. Lewis tackles the temptation of evil. He challenges readers to decide how they would live on the world's last night and writes, "We are not the playwright, we are not the producer, we are not even the audience. We are on the stage. To play well the scenes in which we are 'on' concerns us much more than to guess about the scenes that follow it." The infamous Screwtape makes a special appearance with a toast that explores the prospects for exploiting evil. Blending irony, humor, and paradox, Lewis tackles religion's most difficult and intriguing questions regarding immorality, belief, and the meaning of prayer.
