This book is not just intriguing it is mind blowing Talk about a paradigm shift Open it and enjoy a roller coaster of revelation and discovery Every Bible Scholar and or teacher should read this its only prerequisite An open mind and a desire for a deeper understanding of the Bible s dificult bits Fallen angels and much, much Wow You will not believe how many unanswered questions will suddenly fall into place. This is a very well researched and scholarly work by Dr Heiser, who examines the elusive aspects of Scripture and illumines them in new and interesting ways Unencumbered by denominational baggage , Hesier guides the reader through the unssen spritual realm that underpins our own world You will NEVER read the Bible again in the same way Indeed, it has personally enriched my understanding of Holy Scripture in very deep and meaningful ways.The main text is backed up by first rate referencing from primary and secondary Biblical and ancient Near Eastern scholarly literature for those who wish to dig deeper With so many frauds about masquerading as scholars , Heiser is the real McCoy Highly recommended to laiety and biblical scholars alike. Brilliant and detailed work I think Dr Heiser is literally the leading edge of Bible interpretation currently He seems to me to go where the evidence leads him instead of trying to defend his pet theories This in an age when the virulent and toxic Social Justice Warrior infection in academics makes the field of academia the literal wasteland of desolation when it comes to truth, actually correct scientific method and sound logic Traits which I am happy to say Dr Heiser seems to not only have, but since he shows his working out, can be verified. Those are the words this author uses for his podcast, Naked Bible which is highly recommended but could also be used for this HIGHLY recommended book For many of us Christians, we have been taught so well all the fundamental truths of the Bible Yet there remain gaps and places where passages and small comments are skipped past since they are so strange Heiser, the author, says these strange comments are often very significant they give us a glimpse into the worldview of the people to whom the Bible was written That essentially is what this book and his podcast is about having us wrestle with understanding the worldview of the authors of the books of the Bible.So, dont be afraid and get this book so my late father often used to say and Michael Heiser s excellent book discloses how much our western worldview has blinded us to what the writers of the Bible would have taken for granted I was fortune to have been taught many of these things in a combination of Brethren, Baptist and Pentecostal Charismatic churches in the UK but I have come across many to whom the comparison of Gen 6 with Job 1 2 comes as a surprise.I have 2 minor criticisms many of the technical quotations are in the original French or German not a problem for some but off putting for many Secondly I would quibble with the phrase divine beings as opposed to spirit beings , simply because divine is taken to refer to members of the Godhead as opposed to angels or demons see the useful Web page notes for additional clarification.
