Remembering, today, the 50th anniversary of the death of a great and influential man.
3 pieces of passing interest.
1) A comparison by Joe Rigney and Justin Taylor of the private lives of C.S. Lewis and John F. Kennedy who left this world on the same day in history.
2) Two lectures given by John Piper on C.S. Lewis, “The Inconsolable Longing of a Romantic Rationalist” (each is about 1 hour long).
3) A introduction by Trevin Wax to Peter Kreeft’s book, Between Heaven and Hell, which imagines a conversation between C.S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy, and the English author, Aldous Huxley, all who died on the same day in history within a few hours of each other.
