I believe this is one of the more important books on the bible that I have read in a long time. However be warned this is not an easy read if you are being thoughtful about what is being said. Sometimes I had to set it down to reflect on it. It is challenging to the truly modern men that we have become, even in the church, so rooted in the physical world that we disregard the supernatural forces we see in the bible. I still have questions, and I will have to reread (bought in the Kindle format, but I will buy to use with my Logos). Mr. Heiser has written on something that has not really seen the light of day. One additional note: I have been watching "Questions Aloud" on FaithlifeTV, and happy to see Mr. Heiser is a fellow curmudgeon.
