Michael Heiser shines a light on the supernatural world—not a new light, but rather the same light the original, ancient readers—and writers—of Scripture would have seen it in, given their historical and cultural milieu. This light allows today’s pastors and scholars to understand the biblical authors’ supernatural worldview. Get an unfiltered look at what the Bible really says about the unseen world, unfiltered by tradition or by theological presuppositions.
This 5-volume bundle includes The Unseen Realm, Supernatural, and I Dare You Not to Bore Me with the Bible. Take your study even further with two study resources, The Unseen Realm: A Question & Answer Companion and Supernatural: A Study Guide. In these two companion books, key concepts found in The Unseen Realm and Supernatural are distilled to equip you with everything you need to share your insights with others. Both of these resources are perfect for personal devotion or small group study as they guide you through exploring the supernatural worldview of the Bible.
This is a “big” book in the best sense of the term. It is big in its scope and in its depth of analysis. Michael Heiser is a scholar who knows Scripture intimately in its ancient cultural context. All—scholars, clergy, and laypeople—who read this profound and accessible book will grow in their understanding of both the Old and New Testaments, particularly as their eyes are opened to the Bible’s “unseen world.”

“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.

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 prevalent and 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.
