Synopsis: The final book in Philip K. Dick?s VALIS trilogy, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer brings the author?s search for the identity and nature of God to a close. The novel follows Bishop Timothy Archer as he travels to Israel, ostensibly to examine ancient scrolls bearing the words of Christ. But more importantly, this leads him to examine the decisions he made during his life and how they may have contributed to the suicides of his mistress and son. This introspective book is one of Dick?s most philosophical and literary, delving into the mysteries of religion and of faith itself. As one of Dick?s final works, it also provides unique insight into the mind of a genius, whose work was still in the process of maturing at the time of his death.
From the Inside Flap: The Transmigration of Timothy Archer, the final novel in the trilogy that also includes Valis and The Divine Invasion, is an anguished, learned, and very moving investigation of the paradoxes of belief. It is the story of Timothy Archer, an urbane Episcopal bishop haunted by the suicides of his son and mistress--and driven by them into a bizarre quest for the identity of Christ.
