The Wormwood Deceptions is a continuation of C.S Lewis’s Screwtape letters. The novel covers many topics that are a challenge to the modern-day church. In this story, Wormwood has become a powerful demon in hell who is no longer in charge of tempting individual humans but rather controls the false narratives that currently pervade modern 21st century society.
The book focuses on an unfolding drama that involves a young Civil Servant called James Frankham. As this story unfolds on earth, there are parallel chapters where Wormwood is explaining to more junior demons how he has created powerful deceptions to entrap as many people as he can for the Night Spirit’s (the title the demons use for Satan) kingdom.
Some of the deceptions covered by Wormwood include left/right wing politics, human sexuality, scientism, atheism and Evangelical pharisaism. The book also indirectly covers other topics such as suffering.
The Appendix is mainly there for scientists as it gets to the heart of a foundational mathematical argument which is key to New Atheism. If you have any thoughts about the book please feel free to fill in the feedback form below.
