Content

"One of the most theologically probing of all of Dick's books" it says in the blurb. That may well be true.

I'm not so firm, theologically, but there sure are a lot of refences in the book, be it in the form of direct quotes or the "appearance" of people connected to the theme.

If you, as a reader, wanted to be on par with the author on this book, you would need to research 13 people and their life and works, including jazz musician Herbie Mann or the writings of St. Paul.

But then you would transform from a sf reader into a Philip K. Dick scholar. It's not like I'm recommending you do so. But one could do that.
