Lord Foulgrin's Letters by Randy Alcorn

It's not easy to follow in the footsteps of C.S. Lewis, one of the greatest spiritual writers ever known. Alcorn steps up to the plate with a barrage of ideas and truths. I actually ended up preferring Foulgrin's over its predecessor The Screwtape Letters.
For those of you who never read Screwtape Letters, this is a story about what it would be like to stumble upon the personal correspondence of demons - demons who are trying to ruin your life.
Compared to Screwtape Letters, I enjoyed the addition of human perspective amidst the demon-penpal-style writing. You really begin to care for the Fletchers, cheer them on, and mourn for their heartaches.
Although a work of fiction, Alcorn has great insight into the lies of the enemy. This book will stay with you, and you'll want to come back to it time and again. Happy reading.
