Why Does the Supernatural Matter?

The Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) has driven the Christian mission since the birth of the church. We are called to be partners with God in taking the Kingdom to the ends of the earth.  But we are just individuals working within a larger whole, each of us a tiny speck in the midst of the great undertaking God is directing. Much of this work is done upon the faith that God is actually directing our work, unseen from our physical world.

To fully understand our place in God’s kingdom, we must fully understand this unseen, supernatural world. Dr. Michael Heiser helps us do exactly that in his new book Supernatural—now available in all formats! Challenge your spiritual reality with Supernatural.

A solid foundation

unseen-realmDrawing from over two decades of study, Dr. Heiser wrote Supernatural to help Christians explore what scholars Bible scholars know about the unseen world. Based upon the research he completed for The Unseen Realm, Supernatural is written to be more accessible with a focus on practical application of the insights found in his more academic title. Once we begin to reveal the supernatural worldview of the biblical writers, we can begin to think about how that worldview affects our lives today.

Our identity in Christ and our purpose for the Kingdom gain greater clarity with a fuller picture of the supernatural world. Dr. Heiser puts it this way: “Everything we do and say matters, though we may never know why or how. But our job isn’t to see—it’s to do. Walking by faith isn’t passive—it’s purposeful.” By viewing the Bible from an ancient perspective, our modern spiritual reality changes.
