Happy Soul Industry by Steffan Postaer
This is not your typical spiritual book. The plot begins with God realizing she is in trouble because the world has lost its “goodness.” As a result, God sends an angel to start an advertising campaign to help the world become more good. Be forewarned, however, if you’re offended by swear words, sex, or drugs, or the suggestion that God is female, then this book is not for you.
I did find the book to be a rather quick and sometimes enjoyable read. There are some meaningful messages in the story that are about as obvious as getting hit in the head with a brick. That’s mostly because characters and/or the narrator explicitly state most of (not all) the messages rather than inferring them for the reader to gain personal insight from. In that way, I wish the messages were less obvious and the book allowed the reader to discover them on their own.
Though I wouldn’t recommend this book for the general spiritual seeker, for those people who like to read spirituality with a debaucherous twist then this book is probably a good fit.
