I enjoyed this book very much. Peter Kreeft is a brilliant creative writer that captures the essence of all three men in Between Heaven and Hell. Those three men being:

C.S. Lewis - A Professor of Mid Evil and Renaissance Literature at Oxford and Cambridge University. He wrote more than thirty books in his life, most of them having to do with (or symbolically related to) Divine philosophy and theology. Most popular among them are The Chronicles of Narnia Movie Tie-in Box Set Prince Caspian (rack), Mere Christianity,The Screwtape Letters: Letters from a Senior to a Junior Devil, Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life, and The Great Divorce

John Fitzgerald Kennedy - American President and renowned war hero. Saved America from the Cuban Missile Crises, and set into motion what has become modern day NASA. He was a very smart man who graduated Cum Laude from Harvard University. However his degree was in international affairs, and at its heart his thesis/book Why England Slept was a deep look into international affairs as well. Kennedy therefore was not a philosopher, and so doesn't get a lot to say in this book, which is mainly on divine philosophy.

If you are a serious, scholarly philosopher, this book may not toast your bagel. However, for most people who'd like to know "what difference philosophy makes to real life anyway," Kreeft's book is a gem. It is very readable and, if you have any sense of humor at all, will tickle your funny bone. Highly recommended!

Peter Kreeft is a very gifted Catholic writer of Christian apologetics. Clearly a great admirer of C.S. Lewis, his books have a similar readability and no hold barred approach. It's great to see the use of the dialogue form which goes back to antiquity and doesn't get used enough today. As I was reading this I felt that yes, if one could eavesdrop on a conversation between these three on the threshold of heaven, this may well have been how the discourse went. Anyone who loves Lewis's 'The Great Divorce' will be fascinated by this little book - a great and thought provoking read.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book that I frequently recommend to friends, especially those short on time. It's very easy to read, since it is entirely dialogue, and amazingly short (only takes a couple hours to finish, if that). Yet, even in its simplicity it carries some very weighty questions and thought-provoking answers. I also really enjoy seeing different perspectives interacting; it's more informative than a simple argument for one worldview that does not consider how other worldviews would respond. All in all, a book I enjoyed immensely, and one to keep on my shelf!

Effective defense of Christianity versus secular humanism and pantheistic eastern religions. Kreeft marvously captures the philosophical thought driving each of the men that died on November 22, 1963 in a meaningful Socratic conversation. Uses logic to demonstrate the superiority of the claims of Jesus

Mr. Kreeft does the work to know the voice of his players and has woven yet another thought provoking book on our understanding of God, our life and how we choose to live.

The format took a little getting used to but I found it very stimulating-both mentally and spiritually. I have read C.S. Lewis in the past but was not that informed about many of the "arguments" put forth. I learned a lot and rally enjoyed the read.

Clever idea! Dying within hours of each other, John F. Kennedy, C.S. Lewis, and Aldous Huxley find themselves
in Heaven's Waiting Room. To pass the "time" before being admitted into eternal bliss, they begin a theological conversation. Peter Kreeft has each of the participants contribute to the discussion in accordance with each of their very
different world views. Several topics are covered and each participant gets to weigh in, but Lewis (aka Peter Kreeft ) gets to dominate the witty exchanges, even though both Kennedy and Huxley are worthy opponents. Written in the style of C.S.Lewis and with a taste of Socrates, another of Kreeft's favorites, Beyond Heaven and Hell is a delightful and believable dialog among three great men who died Nov. 22nd 1963. If this book serves as any indication, Heaven has become a more interesting Place. Best of all It can be read quickly; Kreeft wrote it in less than a week. Or very slowly; the subject matter is as thought provoking as it is entertaining.
