Our friend Mir points the way to an essay by the brilliant author and philosopher Peter Kreeft. You should read his fiction -- he often intersects famous philosophers from history, using narrative techniques to examine their belief system. Books like Between Heaven and Hell (an imagined conversation in the afterlife among C.S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy, and Aldous Huxley -- all of whom died within hours of each other) and Socrates Meets Jesus are as engaging as they are thought-provoking.
