Happy Lewis/Huxley/Kennedy day!

Happy Lewis/Huxley/Kennedy day! November 22, 2013

Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of C. S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy, and Aldous Huxley.  The curious conjunction of the death of these three individuals (a Christian apologist, an American president, and a speculative novelist), with their different cultural contributions and different worldviews, on November 22, 1963 is worth contemplating, especially at the half-century milestone.  So that’s what we will do today on this blog.

A good way to observe the day, after the jump.

Read Peter Kreeft’s novel, in which he imagines a conversation between the three great men after their death, just before each of them enters Eternity:
