Magnificent Malevolence

Full Product Description

‘Magnificent Malevolence’ continues the fictional dialogue C.S. Lewis begin in 1942 (The Screwtape Letters), adding a new voice to the popular story. Wormwood and his devilish colleagues are back – as diabolically clever as ever.

“I was a junior tempter then, but even in those days I showed phenomenal promise – a promise which, as all read this will know, has been amply fulfilled throughout a career of quite unprecedented guile, deviousness, and magnificent malevolence …” From the archives of the Low Command: Ministry of Misinformation (stamp)

Crumblewit (Order of the Sons of Darkness, 1st Class) documents the struggles between good and evil on earth from 1942 (when the Screwtape Letter’s first began) to the present day. Crumblewit’s particular job was to muddle in the lives of the ‘saved’, overthrowing the attempts of Christians to carry out the mission given to them by the ‘Unmentionable One’.

A fantastic read full of humourous rants and compelling anecdotes, this book attempts to bring C.S. Lewis’ clever book which exposed the short-comings of Christians into the present day – and it succeeds.

Publisher's Description

This remarkable manuscript outlines the career of the prominent devil, Crumblewit (Order of the Sons of Darkness, 1st Class). It was in a much mutilated state. Nevertheless it presents a reasonably coherent narrative of the activities of a post-Screwtape generation of devils.

It is not, of course, "true" in the sense of being an objective appraisal of the struggles between good and evil which dominated human affairs in the period from 1942 (when Screwtape's Letters were released to the world) to the present. The account is distorted by Crumblewit's truly diabolical conceit and capacity for self-delusion. However, it does shed fresh light on the ups and down experienced by the Church throughout this period. Crumblewit's energies were deployed in the religious arena.

He was employed exclusively in undermining the attempts of Christians to carry out the mission entrusted to them by Jesus...
