The Screwtape Letters

Greg Strand – July 30, 2013 Leave a comment

C. S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters have been very helpful for Christians to think through how the Enemy tempts them and others. Though these letters and conversations are not true, there is much truth that is communicated through them. The sub-title of this book describes the nature of these letters: “How a senior devil instructs a junior devil in the art of temptation.”

Thank you to Andy Naselli who has provided a one-sentence summary of each of the letters Screwtape sends to Wormwood.

Greg Strand


Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
