It's very easy to read and laid out slightly like a script but without stage directions. I enjoyed this book so much I finished it in one sitting. Very tricky concepts and awkward questions are tackled beautifully with sophisticated and well thought out answers delivered in a conversational tone.
The only problem is that it becomes a bit of a showcase for the work of C.S.Lewis. I very much enjoy his work so I was not too bothered but the title of the book is slightly misleading as it's a very one-sided dialog. JFK mostly serves just to ask questions of C.S.Lewis and Aldous Huxely keeps offering alternative answers to him. Huxely does offer some interest in the contribution of ideas from some "eastern religions" but the two other men simply exist for C.S.Lewis to bounce ideas off.
A very good read full of challenging philosophical debate. Challenging for Christians and non-Christians alike though written by a Christian with an obvious focus on Christianity.
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
Written in the form of a Socratic dialogue, Kreeft's book casts Lewis as a Christian theist, Kennedy as a modern humanist and Huxley as an Eastern pantheist. The three interact and challenge one another's worldviews, examining and testing each other's beliefs to see what is true about life after death and the meaning of life.
This book is ideal to read with a few other friends, be they believers, skeptics or seekers. It will provide lively discussion and ample food for thought.
I'm a big fan of Lewis and suggest that simplify things and just read his work.

This is a wonderful book, especially for someone who may not know Christ, as Peter Kreeft paints a very accurate picture of each man in the book. Read morePublished on 5 Sept. 1998
