God is not dead. He has merely been exiled to an extraterrestrial planet. And it is on this planet that God meets Herb Asher and persuades him to help retake Earth from the demonic Belial. Featuring virtual reality, parallel worlds, and interstellar travel, The Divine Invasion blends philosophy and adventure in a way few authors can achieve. As the middle novel of Dick’s Valis trilogy, The Divine Invasion plays a pivotal role in answering the questions raised by the first novel, expanding that world while exploring just how much anyone can really know—even God himself.

    " Science fiction as only someone who is nearly psychotic could write. Actually, only the setting is mildly science fictional, the story seemed to be more about religion than anything else. A clusterfuck of a novel if you think about it. "

    " In the struggle of good versus evil, good will out. "

    " I think this has been my favorite P K Dick story so far. One of those books that you are sorry when it is finished. Dense, layered plot with winks and nods to everything from ancient scripture, ontology, classical music, power, religion and science. Written with a light touch, considering the subject matter, lots of clever wry humor. Who knew the devil was caged and on display at the Stanley Park Zoo in Vancouver!?!! "

    " There is the usual time-tripping here. Pay attention. It is like a LOST episode, and indeed probably inspired some of the concepts used in that estimable show. You need to keep track not only of where you are in space, but in time. The Divine Invasion posits a scenario in which god, Yahweh, was essentially booted off planet Earth after the unfortunate events at Masada. Now resident in an alien hill and renamed Yah, the big guy is looking to stage a comeback. All he needs is to transport himself, or a version of himself, in the person of a fetus implanted into the womb of a virgin, past the sphere of evil (personified by a critter named Belial) that surrounds Earth. All sorts of religious musing hijinks ensue, wonderings on the nature of consciousness, the Talmud, time and space and whether reality is external to the mind or a manifestation of it. I most enjoyed a conversation between Yah and a feminine counterpart that reminded me of the devil tempting Jesus in the desert. Great fun, but don’t try this unless you are reasonably alert. "
