“The Adventures of the Black Girl in Search of God” (1932), a short story written by George Bernard Shaw, is a satirical allegory relating the experiences of a young African girl, freshly converted to Christianity, who takes literally the biblical injunction to “Seek and you shall find me.”, and attempts to seek out and actually speak to God. Through her “adventures” she encounters many eclectic characters who represent various interpretations of God, Jesus and the prophets who give her outrageous advice about how to find God.
