Summary

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.

Truly terrible narration

The idea for this trialogue is clever, and the work itself is fine. It reflects Peter Kreeft’s preference for C.S. Lewis’s point of view over Kennedy’s or Huxley’s, as one might expect. Unfortunately, the sample audio only covered the introduction. You cannot guess how terrible the narrator’s attempts at providing accents are. The one he puts on for Lewis is the worst attempt to create some sort of English accent I have ever heard. And, what is he doing to JFK? Surely he knows Kennedy is from Boston? Then why does he sound like a cross between Mitch McConnell and a drunk teenager? You should almost get it just to hear how bad it is.

Great Kreeft Dialogue

This book is a fun dive into the differences between humanism Christianity and pantheism using JFK, Lewis and Huxley as foils. Narrator does a good job too
