The Unseen Realm: Discovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible

Product Description

The Unseen Realm presents the fruit of Dr. Micahel Heiser's fifteen years of research into what the Bible really says about the unseen world of the supernatural. His goal is to help readers view the biblical text unfiltered by common assumptions that leave no room for the strange and wonderful view of the world the Bible offers.

"People shouldn't be protected from the Bible," Dr. Heiser says. But modern theological systems often do just that, by "explaining away" difficult or troublesome passages of Scripture because their straightforward meaning doesn't fit into our tidy systems.

In The Unseen Realm, Michael Heiser shines a light on the supernatural world - the ancient yet endlessly fascinating light of the historical and cultural milieu of the Bible's original authors and audiences. This light allows today's pastors and scholars to understand the biblical authors' supernatural worldview.

He illuminates intriguing and amazing passages of the Bible that have been hiding in plain sight. You'll find yourself engaged in an enthusiastic pursuit of the truth, resulting in a new appreciation for God's Word.
  • Why wasn't Eve surprised when the serpent spoke to her?
  • How did descendants of the Nephilim survive the flood?
  • Why did Jacob fuse Yahweh and his Angel together in his prayer?
  • Who are the assembly of divine beings that God presides over?
  • In what way do those beings participate in God's decisions?
  • Why do Peter and Jude promote belief in imprisoned spirits?
  • Why does Paul describe evil spirits in terms of geographical rulership?
  • Who are the “glorious ones” that even angels dare not rebuke?
After reading this book, you may never read your Bible the same way again.

“There is a world referred to in the Scripture that is quite unseen, but also quite present and active. Michael Heiser's The Unseen Realm seeks to unmask this world. Heiser shows how important it is to understand this world and appreciate how its contribution helps to make sense of Scripture. The book is clear and well done, treating many ideas and themes that often go unseen themselves. With this book, such themes will no longer be neglected, so read it and discover a new realm for reflection about what Scripture teaches.”
—Darrell L. Bock, Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Howard G. Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement

“‘How was it possible that I had never seen that before?' Dr. Heiser's survey of the complex reality of the supernatural world as the Scriptures portray it covers a subject that is strangely sidestepped. No one is going to agree with everything in his book, but the subject deserves careful study, and so does this book.”
—John Goldingay, David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary
