My New Book Reversing Hermon is Now Available for Pre-Order

Someone sent me an email a week ago that my new book, Reversing Hermon: Enoch, the Watchers, and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ, was available for pre-order. Sorry I forgot to blog it then.

It’s been number 1 in the angels and demons new releases category since it went up, and the overall sales rank of all books sold on Amazon (millions of them) has gotten as low as 3000. Not sure what to make of that, but it’s encouraging!

In case you haven’t heard me talk about it, the book is unique. The focus is the story of the transgression of the Watchers in 1 Enoch 6-16 and how that story is reflected in various places in the New Testament. Like my earlier book, The Unseen Realm, every chapter in this new book is based on a university dissertation or peer-reviewed journal literature. That isn’t the unique part. What’s never been done before — popularly or in academia — is to collect that material and put it between two covers. It’s a first.

Click on the title link and pre-order Reversing Hermon: Enoch, the Watchers, and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ.

The publisher tells me the book will be shipping March 7 or thereabouts.

The Unseen Realm: A Game-Changer for Evangelical Christianity

I’m grateful to Brian Godawa for his post today encouraging everyone in the evangelical orbit to read The Unseen Realm. I believe he’s right — it is indeed a game-changer. If people give it a read they will never be able to read their Bible the same way again. I know that’s true because I had that experience researching and writing it over the past fifteen years.

Unfiltered Fridays: Mike Heiser’s Weekly Post on the Logos Academic Blog

I just wanted to give Naked Bible Readers a heads up to something that begins today. In an effort to get my thinking and content to a wider audience and prepare uninitiated readers to what they’ll read in The Unseen Realm and Supernatural, I’ll be writing a weekly post for the Logos Academic blog. We’re calling the weekly effort “Unfiltered Fridays.” Have to like that.

The inaugural essay is titled: “Getting Serious—and Being Honest—about Interpreting the Bible in Context.”

The content of the essay will be familiar to Naked Bible veterans, but I hope you’ll give it a read anyway. We’re shooting for posts between 400-1000 words each week.
