Publisher's Summary

This is an academic work describing how the New Testament writers re-purpose Genesis 6:1-5 in their presentation of Jesus as messiah. Though every topic addressed in Reversing Hermon can be found in scholarly academic literature, Reversing Hermon is the first book to gather this information and make it accessible to Bible students everywhere. The book also includes lengthy appendices on the ancient debate on the inspiration of the book of 1 Enoch, New Testament allusions to the book, and academic resources for studying 1 Enoch and the Book of Giants from the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Put Away Your Preconceptions

As a pastor, I ran as fast as I could from Genesis 6:1-4. It had to mean anything but what it said. If you are an expository preacher and take pride that you don't duck from any passage that pops up on the calendar of preaching (even womens' head coverings from I Corinthians), you better have a real good explanation for these four Genesis verses. Uhhh, by the way, that the "sons of God" were Seth's descendants are destroyed by Heiser's academic explanation.

Dig in to the rich biblical and important scholarly background that makes this book one for the hungry hearts of those who long for more meaning to one of the most, till now, mysterious passages in all of the Bible.

And one more thing: it will make all that's happening in the world today make more and more sense.

Here's to mind-spinning Bible study!

Great book, not a great narrator

Dr. Heiser is an awesome teacher. His many thorough works are invaluable resources, for anyone willing to listen and to learn. I never ever thought I would enjoy any type of theology. Knowing how dry and "clinical" it can be. I never learned any of these things and always wondered why? This book is filled with a ton of interesting things that make you think and process what we as Christians have always been taught.
I will say the narrator on this one is rough to listen to. I would rather listen to the over-enunciating guy from the other books and he isnt great either unfortunately.
More people would listen if they would use a decent narrator.

Good content, middling production

Great content, very well researched and a worthy continuation of Heiser's Unseen Realm, but the production is hampered by inconsistent audio quality, with seeming pickups from the narrator that do not match the tone or delivery of the surrounding content interspersed throughout the book. A bit distracting in the moment, but the only complete breakdown occurs in chapter 9, which restarts halfway through, at least on my account.

another great book from Heiser

if you have read Heiser's other book, Unseen Realm, you'll definitely want to read this one.

Some tech issues; mixed content

The reading was good. The volume and pitch of the recording changed throughout, sometimes with the chapter breaks and sometimes randomly. Occasionally lines of the text would repeat.

An evangelical biblical theology of Enochic literature is really unique, and this book (along with his Supernatural) has really helped me see thematic lines that truly seem to run throughout Scripture.

This may simply come down to my taste, but parts of the book were really interesting (particularly the first few chapters) and other parts seemed overly long. Particularly the examination of epistles for connections seemed to survey the interpretive options with too much detail. But others may appreciate this detail.

Excellent as always from Heiser

Yet another thorough breakdown of the true supernatural world of the Bible. Heiser is excellent. The reader of this one sometimes sounds like he's reading sarcastically, but he sounded the same in "The Façade" so I think that's just his voice. excellent regardless

Ground Breaking

I find this a groundbreaking book that has strengthened my faith and my understanding of the Bible.
Michael Duty it's Enoch not Enuck, why doesn't anybody check the vocabulary before putting audio books out, this is only annoying part of the book...

THIS IS A VERY THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED AND COGENT
WORK WHICH HAS CERTAINLY OPENED TO ME EVEN MORE
'HIDDEN' HISTORIES OF THE EARLY CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH
UNDERSTANDINGS. MY ONLY WISH IS THAT I HAD KNOWN SOME OF

Eye opener

wow. the deeper I get the more I want to learn. I pray that one day the American church will find its way to learning from things like this and not what they have been groomed to believe.
