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.

This is a brilliant book. It's a fascinating concept and very well written. The three men are portrayed very accurately, especially C.S.Lewis. In fact C.S.Lewis is written so well that the author was once asked if he had known him personally which he had not. He captures the tone and content of his work perfectly.

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.

Format: Paperback
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

Format: Paperback
John F. Kennedy, C. S. Lewis, and Aldous Huxley all died on November 22, 1963. What if they all met after death, somewhere between heaven and hell? That's the premise of this engaging and intriguing book by philosophy professor Peter Kreeft.

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.

Not one of Kreeft's better efforts, this imaginary dialog between JFK, Aldous Huxley, and C.S. Lewis fell short of my expectations. The book is all Lewis - Kennedy doesn't offer much substance and Huxley is hardly here at all.
I'm a big fan of Lewis and suggest that simplify things and just read his work.
