This book is a collection of letters written by Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to “Our Father Below,” to his nephew Wormwood. These letters meant to help guide the novice demon as he tries to secure the damnation of an ordinary young man. With a strong sense of irony and great satire, Lewis explores the topic of spiritual warfare.

Enter a world where failure is success, endings are beginnings, and freedom is found as we learn to submit.

It may sound counterintuitive, but the truth is that Christianity is not just a "nicer" version of the world we live in. It's a completely different, upside-down, backward faith. Somewhere along the way, we've forgotten that and instead accepted a boring, predictable, watered-down version of the life we were meant to live.

Now Chad Bird invites us to put our striving for success aside to embrace nine specific failures in the areas of our personal lives, our relationships, and the church. With compelling examples from the Bible and today, Bird paints an enticing picture of the countercultural life God wants for us. He helps us delight in all of the ways that Jesus turned the world upside down, allowing us to experience true freedom, not from our weaknesses but in the midst of them.
