On November 22, 1963, three great men died within a few hours of each other: C.S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley. All three believed, in different ways, that death is not the end of human life. Suppose they were right, and suppose they met after death. How might the conversation go?Peter Kreeft imagines their discourse as a modern Socratic dialog--a part of The Great Conversation that has been going on for centuries. Does human life have meaning? Is it possible to know about life after death? What if one could prove that Jesus was God?Combining logical argument and literary imagination, Kreeft portrays Lewis as a Christian theist, Kennedy as a modern humanist and Huxley as an Eastern pantheist. Their interaction involves not only good thinking but good drama.

Very good, although I wish they'd gotten more into the textual question; it feels like a loose end. Kreeft's depiction of C. S. Lewis is just like what I get out of Lewis' own books. I really want to see this performed onstage!

Amazing book! Peter Kreeft makes apologetics accessible and interesting. Set up in a dialogue format, this book narrates a debate between J.F. Kennedy, Aldous Huxley, who wrote Brave New World, and C.S. Lewis. They tackle just about everything you could wish for in a good debate. I heard about this from my Lit class teacher, and I would highly recommend to others wanting to learn about their faith. Plus, it has one of my favorite authors!
