Another 50th Anniversary

Between Heaven and Hell

From the Desk of Dr. Stan Ward:

On November 22, our nation will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy. Though not as famous as the death of Kennedy, that same date also marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of C. S. Lewis.

If you are looking for a way to mark this important date, I suggest you consider Peter Kreeft’s book Between Heaven and Hell: A Dialog Somewhere Beyond Death with John F. Kennedy, C. S. Lewis, and Aldous Huxley. Kreeft imagines a dialog between Kennedy, Lewis, and a third man who died on that day, Aldous Huxley. Each had different worldviews, and the book features imagined conversations between these men after their death to illustrate¬† how those worldviews differed. You can find a copy in our Bell Library (201 KRE).

Lewis is required reading for the first semester of our senior Bible class. This article explains why.
