Content:

"The Divine Invasion" is volume two of Philip K. Dick's so-called "Valis-Trilogy".

In this volume, "God", who resides in exile in an alien planet, having temporarily left earth to evil, comes back to reclaim humanity and pry it from the hands of evil forces - appropriately as unborn in the belly of a woman ...

Dick manages to weave fact into a surreal web of fiction about human existence. A real treat for anyone who is interested in the religious side of things without being attached to either side too much.
