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.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
