This is part 2 of the God Child Tetralogy. Before George can be introduced to God Mother, he needs to undergo the second seminar of spiritual psychology. This one is all about evilosis, the great misunderstanding. The voice has more anecdotes, dreams, and visions in store for George to throw light on the dark side of mankind. This time, the voice takes George out into the streets of Philadelphia and gets him involved with people to make good use of the wisdom it has taught him.
NOTE: THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. NO SPAG WARRANTIES ;-).
