As One Devil to Another by Richard Platt
“A fiendish correspondence in the tradition of C. S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters”. That is the subtitle and I can tell you it is very much like The Screwtape Letters. If you liked that original book by C. S. Lewis you will most surely like this book as well.
Not a flaw, but the use of the words “The Adversary” in referring to God, took me aback every single time I saw it. I am so used to attributing that title to the devil.
I found parts of the book boring, parts extremely funny and almost all of it thought-provoking in some way. Be prepared to think when you read this book. The author gives you plenty of to-think-about ammunition, some concepts being: excellence, sexual equality, books, television, internet, homosexuality, distraction, deception, humility.
As a reader of this book you must also keep in mind that the author, as well-meaning as he may have been, was limited to his own understanding of what satan’s schemes really are and of God’s doctrines. Because of that, you may need to consider some things merely as food for thought.
Overall though, if you like C. S. Lewis’ style and especially his Screwtape Letters book, you will like, if not love, this book.
