Overview

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 discussion as 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? With Kennedy taking the role of a modern humanist, Lewis representing Christian theism and Huxley advocating Eastern pantheism, the dialogue is lively and informative.

This new edition of this classic work includes a postscript in which Kreeft describes why and how he wrote what has remained a standard of apologetic literature for a generation. He also adds an outline and index to the book as well as a never-before-published dialog in which he imagines "A World Without an Easter."

Now more than ever this book offers an animated interaction that involves not only good thinking but good drama.

    Enjoyably light yet addresses deep issues.

    This little book is in the form of a trialgoue, between three giant figures of 20th century: JFK, C.S. Lewis, and Aldous Huxley. The whole book flows from one subject to another, in a natural way, as in a real conversation. There aren't any chapters, although the subjects are written on the margins as a guideline. I found it to be helpful at times, but at other times, felt that these notes were unnecessary and ruined the spontaneous feeling of the conversation. Compared to Dr. Kreeft's other trialogue, Refutation of Moral Relativism, I found this book to be even more enjoyable, for it lacked the unnecessary bickering between the characters, and each character represented three distinct philosophical angles. I also felt that these real historical characters gave their words more substance and weight, backed by entirety of their lives. It wouldn't be hard to imagine these three gentlemen having such a conversation if there indeed is a purgatory.
    The short nature of this book makes it a great gift to the casual spiritual seekers, and the depth of the arguments makes it a great read for the already convinced.

    Check it out.

    Kreeft gets into the heads and hearts of three men who share a common date in history. Went straight from this book to reading more the works of CS Lewis and Huxley and Kennedy.
