First: Supernatural was written for the average person who is not into all of the academic talk. Dr. Heiser was able to simplify this “heady subject” so that more people could participate in the conversation. My wife and three daughters could follow the subject matter and also thoroughly enjoyed it as well.
Second: For those who want the academic side, that will definitely come out in the scholarly version of Supernatural which is titled The Unseen Realm. I am very much looking forward to The Unseen Realm because that is the type of material that I have been used to consuming from Dr. Heiser. However, for you scholarly types, please don’t overlook the easy to read and less complicated Supernatural. I read it and was pleased because I knew that I could give Supernatural to family and friends as a great introduction to the subject of the divine council, cosmic geography, etc.
As I have come to find out through Dr. Heiser’s additional teachings, the divine council is a biblical subject that literally touches/affects nearly every biblical doctrine in the scripture. Don’t believe me, read Supernatural as an introduction and then The Unseen Realm when it comes out in the next several months and find out. This subject is important enough for everyone to read, not just the scholar/academic. Supernatural accomplishes that goal.
Enjoyed Supernatural and I am very much looking forward to The Unseen Realm.
This is more of an introductory book on the subject.
The reader will find some intriguing information in the book such as some curious geographic areas that pop up in both Testaments.
He also offers a perspective on the aftermath of the Tower of Babel incident that I hadn't heard of before.
I appreciate his discussion on translational differences regarding Deut. 32: 8,9.
This is a good primer on the supernatural world based on Scripture.

Dr. Heiser has taken an enormous amount of material and condensed it into a format that allows readers of all interest levels to benefit from the truths the ancient texts reveal. I recommend reading this book before reading his more extensive and academic book on the same subject entitled “The Unseen Realm”. Also an outstanding work.
