Where does Supernatural rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In terms of making me think different. in the top 3.
What other book might you compare Supernatural to and why?
Anything by Brian Godawa, because we draws from Hieser's source material for the rules of his stories. If you have not read those stories. Well... To me that's like saying, "I have read The Silmarillion why bother with Lord of the Rings..." Story...
Which character – as performed by Gordon Greenhill – was your favorite?
Jesus, from the vantage point of the author, is very calculated and heroic. NO CHEESINESS HERE TRUST ME! Lots of Jesus books are overly preachy this is just hammers a lot of good (unique) points home in a way nobody else has. Seriously. Nobody has ever written about Jesus with this vantage point for at least 2000 years.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When you understand when Jesus calls out Satan and Banias, and fools him into killing him you realize the new testament is the greatest chess game ever played. Jesus outsm,arted the Devil. Dude he was so smart about it too. Just killer.
Any additional comments?
Just listen to the book. If you hate it you can always return it. However you would be a fool to becasue info like this kind of info only comes around every.... well.. 2000 years apparently. You wont return it. You will sit back and smoke a cigar and think..."God's kind of a bada$$ isn't he?" He is. This book proves it.

Answered questions I didn't know I had but filled a void created by the traditional heartfelt one liners we get and give walking the believers walk. Its tough to console and be an encourager when it seems evil wins unjustly. I had read the book of Enoch which made the subject material somewhat familiar but wow; what truths were made clear, helpful and specific to the root of evil. Dr Heiser's clarification and cross referencing of Scripture reveals how evil has been and is playing its hopeful hand against God's divine Kingdom family and offers more than the traditional answer of "hang in there, we win in the end". "Why it matters" applies what Scripture says, what God is doing, and summarizes how crucial it is for each believer to realize our place and our part in the Kingdom family of God. Its not even that I didn't know, but I didn't know. Hahaha...I know that didn't make sense. This is an amazing piece of work just in time to rally the saints for Kingdom building because I believe the end is near and evil will try harder and harder. Thank you Dr. Heiser for your work. Thank you Mr. Greenhill for reading. You were easy to listen to and didn't detract from the material. It was a grand experience all around.

Have you ever wondered why genocide plays such an important role in the Old Testament?
Have you ever wondered why evil spirits are only mentioned in the New Testament once Jesus arrives on the scene?
Have you ever wondered why there are real giants mentioned in the Bible, and what they tried to achieve?
Have you ever had an overview of the entire Bible and our entire planet explained to you in a way that also explains the supernatural realm, and how Christians are called and empowered to deal and interact with it?
Have you ever wondered what the role and destiny of a follower of Jesus is after physical death in this life?
If you would like to know the answers to these and many more questions (that Church teachers would rather avoid answering), then i recommend you read/listen to this book. And if this book leaves you wanting more, you can then graduate onto Michael Heisers more in depth book, that expands on this world view in 'The Unseen Realm'.

That might sound strange to some but this 'retake' on biblical interpretation is founded on tonnes, and I mean tonnes, of scholarly research. I love that this book has a simple and yet profound description of the bible from start to finish, from Genesis to Revelation. The narrator does a decent job and has a good tone to his voice , certainly not hard to listen to. 'Supernatural' is a good starting place for those interested in trying to understand Mike's approach and interpretation of the biblical text. My recommendation to you? "Get it in 'ya!'"
