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 listening to 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 listen to it and discover a new realm for reflection about what scripture teaches.

Simply a must-read for all Christians
I've listened to this book 4 times. There is so much to learn here, I'm tempted to listen again! It's that important, it's that good. I highly recommend you read/listen to this book. Open my eyes Lord is my prayer as a result of the information I've gleaned here. Michael Heiser did an outstanding job of organizing and presenting ancient understanding so as to bring to light the,now, seemingly obvious meanings of those difficult texts we all wrestle with as honest God-fearing children of God.

Fantastic revelation of complex biblical details
If you could sum up The Unseen Realm in three words, what would they be?
comprehensive, amazing, researched
What did you like best about this story?
Thorough research by Dr. Heiser. The uncovering of the connected details in the Bible and God's plan as shown in this book are astounding. I would never have had the opportunity to see beyond my current layman's understanding of God's plan if it were not for this book. I have an increased love for God and a much clearer understanding for why the world is in such chaos. Thank you Dr. Heiser for this masterful work! I generally don't take the time to write reviews, but this was such a profound and complete piece of work I was compelled to share my thoughts, albeit brief. Lastly, if you struggle with God as an angry God who also loves his people, or you struggle with why there is so much pain and suffering in this world, this book will enlighten you immensely on the condition we are all in.
What about Gordon Greenhill’s performance did you like?
Clear, concise, properly effectuated.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes. Mind blown!

The Unseen [and sometimes seen] Realm
The Unseen Realm gives a clear account of how the Bible not only documents humanities history of interaction with our Creator, but also of our interaction with the unseen (and sometimes seen) realm of other spiritual entities. Get ready for a paradigm shift. For many, this book will answer some fundamental questions that have bugged many a thinking believer for far too long.
Michael S Heiser continues to dig up gems from parts of Scripture that the vast majority of scholars and commentators avoid exploring for a myriad of reasons. No area of investigation is off limits in Dr. Heiser's relentless pursuits of discovering and explaining the messages originally intended by the writers of Biblical Scripture.

A real loose end fixer
For the Christian who is firmly rooted in a materialistic 'greek' world view, this is a game changer.
For the Christian who has no trouble with the straight forward view of Genesis 6 this will be a welcome raft of additional knowledge.
For both, it is a tour de force in sorting out those nagging often ignored oddities in the Word of God. Enjoy and prepare for many ah ha moments.
