not disappoint those who take the risk of encountering him.
I challenge all Christians to a renewed encounter with Jesus

This timeless classic, is a series of letters from
Screwtape, a devil high in rank, to his nephew Wormwood, engaged in his first mission on earth, trying to
secure the damnation of a young man who has just
become a Christian. The most engaging account of
temptation and triumph over it ever written.
