Michael S. Heiser

Michael S. Heiser is a scholar in the fields of biblical studies and the ancient Near East. Dr. Heiser earned his Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004. He also earned an M.A. in the same field at Wisconsin, along with an M.A. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania (major fields: Ancient Israel and Egyptology). Dr. Heiser is currently the Executive Director and Professor at the Awakening School of Theology and Ministry with Celebration Church in Jacksonville, FL. Before accepting his current position, Mike taught on the college and seminary level for over 20 years and was Scholar-in-Residence for Logos Bible Software for 15 years. Dr. Heiser is the author of several best-selling books: The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible; its shorter companion work, Supernatural: What the Bible Teaches about the Unseen World and Why it Matters; Angels: What the Bible Really Teaches About God’s Heavenly Host; and Reversing Hermon: Enoch, the Watchers, and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ. He has also written over 100 articles for Bible Study Magazine and has several peer-reviewed articles in academic journals. Dr. Heiser is known for intentionally exposing non-specialists interested in biblical studies, theology, and ancient texts to peer-reviewed material in all these areas. To that end he hosts the popular Naked Bible Podcast, which passed five million downloads in 2019. His non-profit corporation, MIQLAT, provides free translations of his biblical studies content in over twenty languages. Lastly, Dr. Heiser is well known for his interest in the paranormal and alternative history. He has been a guest on dozens of talk shows and podcasts that focus on the fringe. Through his fiction (The Facade, The Portent), his Peeranormal podcast, and his YouTube Channel, Fringepop321, he tries to promote critical thinking in regard to this subject matter. Dr. Heiser's homepage is drmsh.com. You can follow him on Twitter @msheiser.
