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.

A fictionalized account of Dick's friendship with Bishop Pike, and the latter's strange death. He explores his themes of hyperreality, the hyperreal self (what we inevitably are) and how they interact with our personal feelings about and of death, suffering, and spirituality in the context of our all powerful, and usually skewed, daily lives. No science fiction at all here, just theology and psychology. Dick has no great, resonant spiritual synthesis to offer, it's too late for that.
