- I have read his book draft in late 2008, early 2009. We were all eager to read the final version. In this final version of it, we discover much more solid scholarship on a lot of "unseen" and controversial biblical concepts. Heiser successfully shakes, destroys, rebuilds, and reconfigures our common, traditional viewpoints on the entire Bible. He truly guides you into seeing the Bible in light of an ancient Israelite or first-century Judeo-Christian follower. This 15-year-researched material was definitely not rushed, and it is worth your careful consideration and study. I've written a full review that I have not yet published, but will eventually publish on Amazon and other places.
