The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
I have read "The Screwtape Letters" up to page 27. So far I learned that Screwtape is writing to his nephew, Wormwood. In the book, Screwtape is a "retired devil" that advises his nephew when dealing with his "patient". The patient is a human and the book continues to point out aspects of a regular person and show how we, as people think and work. Wormwood's intention is to drag his patient into thinking philisophically, ruining his relationship with his mother, and to prevent him from praying. This is all to prevent him from trusting in "the Enemy"
One quote I found interesting in the book was "Your man has been accustomed to, ever since he was a boy, to have a dozen incompatible philosophies dancing around together in his head." Here, Screwtape is writing to his nephew about how his "patient"doesn't see anythingas true or false. He says that with all the news and everything around him, he is used to thinking about everything philisophically. Screwtape also mentions that arguement would keep him out of "the Enemy's" clutched if he lived a few centuries earlier, implying that the world changed how people think. I thought this quote was acually very true since I think very few people still see things in black and white. Nothing is true or false but when you look at every event in a different perspective, anything could be true, or false. So nothing is really set as bad or good but is more inbetween because "if this was happening, then..." and "well if you look at it this way...." is always in our heads.
