The Deluxe Illustrated Edition of a Timeless Classic

First published in 1942, The Screwtape Letters has sold millions of copies world-wide and is recognized as a milestone in the history of popular theology.

With beautiful color illustrations by the artist Papas throughout, this new edition also includes C. S. Lewis's own drawing of Screwtape, as well as a retrospective essay written twenty years after the original publication.
