This is an auction for THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C S Lewis.

From Wikipedia:

"The Screwtape Letters is a novel written by C S Lewis. It is written in a satirical, epistolary style and has been classified as a work of both fiction in technicality and non-fiction in essence. First published in 1942, the story takes the form of a series of letters from a senior Demon, Screwtape, to his nephew, Wormwood, a Junior Tempter. The uncle's mentorship pertains to the nephew's responsibility for securing the damnation of a British man known only as "the Patient". In The Screwtape Letters, Lewis provides a series of lessons in the importance of taking a deliberate role in living out Christian faith by portraying a typical human life, with all its temptations and failings, as seen from devils' viewpoints. Screwtape holds an administrative post in the bureaucracy ("Lowerarchy") of Hell, and acts as a mentor to Wormwood, the inexperienced tempter. In the 39 letters which make up the book Screwtape gives Wormwood advice on methods of undermining faith and promoting sin in the Patient, interspersed with observations on human nature and Christian doctrine. Wormwood and Screwtape live in a morally reversed world, where individual benefit and greed are seen as the greatest good, and neither demon is capable of comprehending God's love for man or acknowledging human virtue when he sees it. Versions of the letters were originally published weekly in the Anglican periodical The Guardian in 1941. The Screwtape Letters is one of Lewis' most popular works..."
