The Unseen Realm (DVD Film) - Michael Heiser
UFO conventions may not seem like a good place for a Christian theology professor, but that's where you can sometimes find Dr. Michael Heiser, an Old Testament scholar and author of the book, The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible. Dr. Heiser's interest in UFO stories has led him to ask intriguing questions such as, Are all these stories of unidentified objects in the sky and alien abductions merely the product of sci-fi fantasy run amuck or could there be something deeper hidden under the surface?
In this provocative documentary, Dr. Michael Heiser explores the unexpected intersection between UFOs, alien abductions, the world of angels and demons, and the ancient texts that speak of them.
