C.S. Lewis, like John Kennedy, died fifty years ago today. I'm thankful to God for Lewis' writings; he is one of my favorite authors. If I had a Top Ten list of books that are most precious to me, Mere Christianity would make the list. Other Lewis classics that I love are The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the Chronicles of Narnia. Lewis is one of the clearest Christian thinkers I have ever read. He was a great gift by God to the church.
Not only Lewis and Kennedy, but also Aldous Huxley died fifty years ago today. A couple of years ago I read a fictional account of a conversation between the three men after death. It's a fascinating book that I recommend. The title is Between Heaven and Hell: A Dialog Somewhere Beyond Death with John F. Kennedy, C. S. Lewis & Aldous Huxley.
