did you know

November 29, 2007

Today is the birthday of not only C.S. Lewis, Louisa May Alcott, AND Madeleine L’Engle,  all three of whom greatly influenced my younger years.

  1. That’s fascinating.

    Did you know that C. S. Lewis, Aldous Huxley and J F Kennedy all died on the same day – Nov 22, 1963? They represent 3 very different religious streams of thought, Christian apologist and lay theologian, humanist and nominal Christian, respectively. A friend of mine years ago said he read a book where the author imagined the conversation of these three men when they met at the gates of heaven.

  2. I didn’t know that, and wow that sounds like a really interesting book/conversation.
