Michael Heiser: Taking Scripture on Its Own Terms

A groundbreaking author, speaker, and scholar pushing Christians to dig deep into Scripture and see things afresh.

The Unseen Realm

Rebellion in God's council. Spirits of dead giants. Rival gods creating chaos.

These are the things of myth and fairy tales, right? The Bible tells a different story. In the documentary The Unseen Realm, a light is cast on the strange and enigmatic plane of the supernatural that lies within the pages of Scripture. And what we discover are two distinct worlds—with vastly different inhabitants—created and ruled by one loving triune God.
