Derek Wilson is the author of Magnificent Malevolence, which has been written in the tradition of The Screwtape Letters.  The main character is Crumblewit, who is very good at his job, and this is his manuscript.

Crumblewit S. O. D. (Order of the Sons of Darkness, 1st Class) is a devil who has the job of preventing Christians from doing their work for the Unmentionable One.  His job began in 1942 and continues to the present with special cases around the world.

Book Excerpt

About the Author- Historian Derek Wilson lives in Devon and has written over 60 books.

My thoughts-

I just finished reading Magnificent Malevolence, by Derek Wilson.  It was written in the tradition of the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis.  I have read parts of Lewis's book and I found Wilson’s to be quite good.  I was intrigued from the moment I began reading, all the way to the end.

One of the parts I liked the best was that the chapter titles indicated the years being mentioned.  I was pleased that I remembered enough world history, from 1942 through the present, so I was able to understand Crumblewit’s references.

Although Crumblewit caused a lot of damage to the Christians, I was very impressed with his intelligence and tenacity. 

I would recommend Magnificent Malevolence to everyone.  It was a good way for me to see a different view of history and what I can do to avoid repeating it.
