"Lord Foulgrin's Letters" is a "Screwtape Letters" for today, fascinating yet distinctly different, a dramatic story with earthly characters, setting, and plot. A creative, insightful biblical depiction of spiritual warfare, this book can guide readers to Christ-honoring counterstrategies for putting on the full armor of God and resisting the devil.
?Know your enemy. Read his mail? ? from the publishers summary of ?Lord Foulgrin?s Letters? by Randy Alcorn.
Similiar to C. S. Lewis? ?Screwtape Letters? (and accredited by the author), Randy Alcorn tells the story of an evil spirit commander named Lord Foulgrin and his instructions, by letter, to his subordinate Squaltaint.
An eye opening synopsis of the real but invisible war that rages all around us everyday, this book also offered thought provoking quotes such as:
?My dear Squaltaint, Whatever you do, don?t let those Christians stop arguing about origins and myths of how Genesis began, and how and in what manner the Enemy created. For as long as they continue to argue about those particulars, and insist on misinterpreting the clear meaning of the Enemy?s Book, by reading it literally, they will continue to ignore the clear message of the Enemy- that he is powerful, and intimate. If they continue in their unending arguments on creation and evolution, they will miss the message the Enemy wanted to give them.?
?He?s spilled the beans. He?s poured out His intentions, allowing us full access. The humans put the Forbidden Book on display tables and shelves. But we actually read it; indeed we must no matter how loathsome.?
And my personal favorite, which I have quoted several times since reading this book:
?Never forget that the most effective form of child abuse is giving a child everything they want.?
I?d recommend reading this book when you are in a stable, secure state of mind. The ideas expressed in this book might give you too much to consider without a firm foundation.
If the value of a book is judged on how it affects the reader and perhaps how long the ideas resonate, this book ranks among the very best.

Attention all parents!
Parents of teens and young adults should read this book. I am a grandma and gave a copy to my 14 yr. old granddaughter and my daughter -in-law. I bought another copy to pass around to my 3 daughters to read. This book is essential reading!
