21st Century Screwtape
I was maybe 13 and started to think and ask questions about the faith. So my dad's new vicar handed me a copy of C.S. Lewis'es "Screwtape Letters." What a book! The premise is a salty old demon writing letters of advice to his nephew on how to win souls for the devil. The book does make you think. Well, Leslie Sillars takes up this tradition in an article for Salvo Magazine. It is an absolutely must read. Apologetics (that department of Christian theology, devoted to defending the faith) at it's best. Very entertaining as he bats down one popular argument against Christianity after another. You will enjoy reading it, here.
