Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning. And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful

The Screwtape Letters

Just read that the Screwtape Letters is going to be made into a feature film. I read this book by C.S. Lewis several years ago, during a slow turning back from atheism to the Catholic Faith. It helped. As I remember it, the humor and insight of the book entertains, even while it prods the reader to take a closer look at the ways people can justify their baser impulses. It is written as a series of letters from one demon to a lesser demon, who is trying to corrupt and capture a soul. Amy Schartz wrote a short sequel in the same style. And here is a briefer homage in the form of a single letter.

I imagine a very episodic movie, with a Greek chorus of devilish commentary. It will be interesting to see what the producers decide to do with the story.
