A fallen angel named Twiptweed defects from hell and writes to an agnostic college professor to let him know what in hell Satan is up to on earth.
One can only speculate concerning an actual defection from hell. As for hell and its inhabitants, it seems that the final disintegration into nothingness is preceded by a certain spiritual schizophrenia of being totally alienated from God, neighbor, and even one's very self. Yet if hell is to be described as a place of terrible flames and burning torment, could it be that those who freely choose their way into hell are all 'burned up" by the flame of God's love?
'As any Christian boy knows-or used to know-Satan is prowling about looking for souls to devour. Well, this is one fallen angel who is not. Of course, you must never allow His Royal Lowness to see these letters. I have gone to extremes to secure these thoughts beyond his security clearance since it is forbidden to reveal to a human being the plot of Hell.Remember.your enemies are not merely flesh and blood. Watch your step; all of hell is. Believe me.."
