At great personal risk to himself and his reputation, Dr. Farley has translated this document and made it available to the world. What you do with this information is up to you.

As I like the original Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, I was very glad that this is as good.

I am thankful for his insight that also broadened my insight and I am grateful he has the courage to put it in a book.

It will open your eyes to the lies, schemes and distractions of the devil that invade our lives everyday.

As a believer in Christ and a pastor, I am grateful for those with the ability to plumb the enclaves of the Scriptures and emerge with pure gold for the Body of Christ to cash in on. Andrew Farley has continued that tradition as one of the finest communicators of the grace and truth of Jesus Christ in the church today.

In Operation Screwtape, Dr. Farley taps into the genius "Screwtape" creation of C.S. Lewis, giving us one of the most helpful and entertaining books on the subject of spiritual warfare that you will ever read. Helping us discover the absolute victory over spiritual darkness that has been secured for us by our Savior, we learn to rest more confidently in the fact that we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us!

Rather than diminish the reality of spiritual warfare on one extreme OR practically deify Satan and his demons by sensationalizing their powers on the other extreme, Farley offers Christ's church a sane, practical, creative and truly enjoyable read that will have you jumping with joy (at least on the inside) as Jesus helps you break free from the most common lies the enemy tries to tell you!

I have been extremely blessed and impacted by Dr. Farley's insights and ability to communicate top-shelf theological stuff with a clarity that all can grasp, understand and apply. Do yourself a favor and get this book! You are FREE from the power of the enemy. Learn how to live in that freedom more fully!

Can't tell you how much I loved this book. To be able to take a step back and see a glimpse of a war being waged and how its being waged. Taking a look at the way the Enemy himself knows ALL the richness we have in Christ and His work, and how he goes about to stop us from seeing it, understanding it, living it and even celebrating it. For me, I loved the little chapter on Celebration in the "Steal" section. I grew up in a hyper legalistic environment. Celebration itself was frowned upon, but the worse thing was, I didn't know there was anything to really celebrate. If anything it was truly a "hey, come and be miserable, like me!". But this grace, that the Enemy tries to distract us from, this grace and this Life....there is so so much to celebrate over, to rejoice in.

Like I said, I loved this book. It's just wonderful. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy. Buy more copies to give away. And do yourself an even bigger favor, buy some of Dr. Farley's other books and read them. I have read them multiple times now and each time my understanding deepens and I learn to walk in the grace of Christ.

I first read C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters back in 2006, and I loved it. Not long after that first trip through the book, I led a summer book study with a group of women in my parish.

The first time I read Screwtape, it was audio. The voice of the narrator was perfect in all the right creeporific ways. It struck me as one of the best examinations of conscience I had found (not that I had looked very hard at that point). It made me consider sin in a whole new way and think about angels and demons - especially demons - as workers with a stake in things, and as forces that I can beat, but not alone. It made me see the need for God in my life ever more, ever more.

The second time I read it, I was reading more carefully. Since I had listened to the audio version the first time, different things leapt out at me when I went back through it with the book study. I was again struck by the fact that this was, in effect, a description of ME, and it was a starting place for an examination of conscience.

I haven't followed all the books in this vein, but when I come across them, I usually jump on them. Back in 2010, I read Fr. Dwight Longenecker's The Gargoyle Code: Lenten Letters between a Master Tempter and his diabolical Trainee and found it delightful (it warrants a reread, come to think of it, especially with Lent coming soon).

Imagine my delight to hear about Andrew Farley's new book, Operation Screwtape: The Art of Spiritual Warfare.

It is, in a word, wonderful.

Andrew Farley obviously has great insight into what motivates and drives the deceiver of our souls. Too many of us are caught up in trying to accomplish under our own strength and efforts. This book is a great tool for avoiding the pitfalls.

I really enjoyed this audiobook a lot, as it was very well read and written. As I like the original Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, I was very glad that this is as good. This works on several levels, as a very humorous story to listen to, as a teaching audio on spiritual warfare, but also as a refreshing audio about the goodness of God and his wonderful grace.
The narrator David Cochran Heath is absolutely brilliant and perfect for this audio. His evil voice with his menacing laugh and instructions to his demon agents was very believable. He really made me laugh quite a few times during this audio, and I imagine more than if I'd read the print version of this book. I would definitely recommend this audio to anyone who likes the original Screwtape and to other listeners too. Thanks to christianaudio.com Reviewer's Program for this copy.
