The Impact of C.S. Lewis on American culture. “True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it 's thinking of yourself less” (C.S. Lewis) Clive Staples Lewis was a great writer who impacted many lives by his books. Lewis lived from 1898 to 1963 in Oxford.

In the Screwtape Letters, C.S. Louis created an indirect dialogue between Screwtape; a senior devil, and his protégé nephew; Wormwood. The text is a collection of letters, composed by Screwtape, addressed to Wormwood, which commentate on Wormwood’s efforts to seduce a human. The Screwtape Letters served as the principal inspiration for Concrete Wafers. Louis’ influence is instantly apparent, as the text is narrated by the ‘observer;’ an agent clearly reminiscent of Screwtape, in powers and motive alike.

“Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it (author anonymous).” Virtue is defined by Webster Online Dictionary as a conformity to a standard of right, a particular moral excellence. As Christians, we are instructed to stand apart from this dark and ominous world, to be a light in the darkness. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God.” The question then becomes, is averting evil enough to generate a virtuous person or must it be an active choice?
Have you ever read a book actually changed you? That gave you the chills and caused goosebumps to break out across your skin? Violent Ends did that to me, more than once.

Then it is easy to see that the majority of people need to understand what sin is and how to be prepared to manage it. This book by CS Lewis, equips someone with the tools they need to recognize Satan's deceptions for these three following reasons: Wormwood used the man's feelings towards his mother to harden his heart against her, Wormwood tries to tempt the Christian with the sin of pride, and finally Wormwood attempts to cause the man to fall in his purity Firstly, Wormwood used the
Not only that but he succeed in filling this book with the energies of what it felt like to be in these stories. He uses intelligent and witty writing to keep the reader interested throughout the entirety of the book. In The Duel, the reader got to see where both sides were coming from that ultimately led to Hamilton’s death. In The Silence, he gives you a chance to really understand how congress failed to bring any kind of reconciliation about the subject of slavery and even making it to where nothing could be done about it until Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation. All in all, I feel the author achieved a great success in the writing of this book.
C.S. Lewis, a Christian writer from England, penned a manuscript in 1942 called The Screwtape Letters that examined the temptations presented to man by Satan. “Lewis's Screwtape Letters was certainly one of his most popular works, and by his own admission it was a work that he found easy to write” (Harwood 24). By being a Christian himself, Lewis could sympathize and identify with fellow Christians undergoing the onslaught of spiritual attacks. Christians struggle daily with the temptations of Satan similar to those that Screwtape directs his nephew, Wormwood, to employ towards the Patient. In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis uses the character, Patient, to symbolize everyman and his struggles with overcoming temptations by showing how Screwtape attempts to conjure a plan for Wormwood to lure the Patient to the Devil’s camp with Satan’s insipid temptations of vanity,
Told in the famous C.S. Lewis The Screwtape letter, a well-known demon informs his nephew, Wormwood, of a struggle that the Christians face still today. A well lesson to all Christians, Screwtape advises Wormwood to go and let the patient talk like a parrot without discipline when in prayer. As explained by Screwtape, “When the patient is an adult recently reconverted to the Enemy’s party, like your man, this is best done by encouraging him to remember, or to think he remembers, the parrot-like nature of his prayers in childhood.”
McDowell begins the book with an anecdote of his life; a familiar story of the sceptical university Agnostic, ready to fire back a retort at the slightest mention of God, Christianity, and anything (or anyone) within. He recounted the all too common feeling of a meaningless life, the seemingly innate itch of human existence, and how it brought him to various places in his life—until he stumbled upon a particular group of people and was changed forever. This introduction, though short, is crucial to understand, for it sets the stage for the remainder of the book. It tells not only the story of a former non-believer, but the story of everyone—it presents us the life of Jesus Christ, not as a gentle sermon or a feel-good retelling, but as an assertive, rational reply to the accusation: ‘Christianity is a myth, and so is your God.’
Romans 14:1 says “As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him.” Charles Colson was weak in faith for the majority of his life. He didn’t accept Christ into his life until he was facing arrest, an a close friend gave him a copy of C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity. Colson was a special counsel to President Richard Nixon. He did much of the dirty work for the President and gained the name “Hatchet Man.”
