5.0 out of 5 stars Very thought provoking, raises one's thinking
Follows the method used by Socrates in debating points. Brings out many telling points about the divinity of Christ and the danger of falling into the trap of humanitarian secularism which is like being a Christian without Christ or having Christmas without Christ.

3.0 out of 5 stars This imaginary conversation is an original and interesting idea, but the debate seems to be weighted in favour of C S Lewis
This is an imaginary conversation between three people who all died on the same day, though the news of John F Kennedy's death swept aside all other news including the deaths of C S Lewis and Aldous Huxley. A weakness of the debate between the three is that Huxley hardly features at all for the first half of the book and I felt that he would have had a contribution to the...

3.0 out of 5 stars This imaginary conversation is an original and interesting idea, but the debate seems to be weighted in favour of C S Lewis, 9 Jan. 2014
This is an imaginary conversation between three people who all died on the same day, though the news of John F Kennedy's death swept aside all other news including the deaths of C S Lewis and Aldous Huxley. A weakness of the debate between the three is that Huxley hardly features at all for the first half of the book and I felt that he would have had a contribution to the dialogue between Lewis and JFK. In reality we know far less about JFK's views than those of the others and so a somewhat artificial position is taken by JFK as a kind of middle of the road believer. It becomes clear after a while that the direction of the debate is in Lewis's favour and indeed the main points are highlighted by subtitles in the margin of the text as if to nudge us in case we haven't taken on board Lewis's argument.
The book is written by a Christian and does not seem to me to come over as an even-handed philosophical debate. Even so, the book will be of interest to students of religion and philosophy as various debating points are thrown up. - Alan Paul

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea and it does make you think, 10 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Between Heaven and Hell (Paperback)
I give this book a "worth reading" review. Great idea and it does make you think. Obviously the author has an agenda BUT it got me thinking about the meaning of "belief". An interesting and after all worthwhile approach to differing philosophies.
