Fr Longenecker’s 50 Days with the Devil

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 1.07.28 PMFather Longenecker recently sent me his new book Slubgrip Instructs: 50 Days with the Devil and I’ve enjoyed it. My eight-year-old was deeply worried about the book when it arrived. “Dad, why do you have this book? It has a demon on it. Its 50 days with the devil! That’s bad!”

The book follows the tradition of CS Lewis’ Screwtape Letters, the account of a senior demon advising a junior demon in the art of human temptation. Lewis crafted this uncanny presentation of the enemy’s “playbook” so that we human could benefit by seeing the demonic strategies for sending us to hell.

Fr Longenecker continues the tradition but in a Catholic way in his new contribution to the genre.
