On November 22, , three great men died within a few hours of each other: C. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley. All three believed, in different ways, that death is not the end of human life.

Kennedy, C. President John F. Kennedy , and authors C. It was inspired by the fact that all three men died on the same day: November 22, We see from the three points of view: Kennedy's "modern Christian" view, Lewis's "conservative Christian" or " mere Christian " view, and Huxley's "Orientalized Christian" view. The book progresses as Lewis and Kennedy discuss Jesus 's being God incarnate , to Lewis and Huxley discussing whether or not Jesus was a deity or "just a good person.
