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.

the book had a lot of good parts, w intersting characters..and it had great PKD craziness/brilliance. but I felt it finished poorly, like he was trying to wrap it up w some symbolic characterizations of Judeo symbols. It rang, stiff and preachy here and there and doubled down in the end. I'm not sure I'm going to listen to the 3rd book in this series.
