Voting will continue until the end of the year. Anyone who calls themselves a Bible-believing Christian needs to read this, and explore Dr. I received an eBook copy from the publisher for a book review on LibraryThing. While his degree and subsequent employment by arguably the largest current Bible software producer will prove his expertise in those issues, I too have studied the Bible both devotionally and as a minister.

Mike Heiser is currently writing his Ph. While I would have probably have never picked up the resource and read it had he not have worked for a Bible software company, I am glad I did.

And finally, when one of the characters turns out to be the mole, well, in hindsight, some of that character’s dialogue from previous pages doesn’t seem to work anymore. Whether devils or aliens I believe Christ has all power over them. The eschatological concepts Dr. I found that the story was unnecessarily obtuse, tried too hard to slowly reveal what it was all about; bring in false trails to keep the reader guessing and generally somewhat too predictable.

I am a big fan of Heiser’s academic writings, but unfortunately I did not find this book equally stimulating. So an interesting and fun read Fantastic story and intricate plot This was hard to put down, fast, fun, and brilliantly done.


And of course the characters The focus was on The Can’t wait to start reading his second book in the series, the Portent. This Author is bringing Bible Truths to the world. Well, I guess he is now.

Book Review: The Facade – First Century Christianity

Ancient Israel and Facadd. Probably not too many books that get categorized as both “science fiction” and “alien contact”, and get recommended as a primer on the subject by a bunch of serious proponents of the “UFO phenomena”. Adrienna Turner Author of “God is in the Equation” www. Jan 26, David rated it really liked it.

I am delving into the story to see where this is going and how all these people play a part in the book to solve the case, if this is the case. No trivia or quizzes yet.

We do not have much time to get the truth Outstanding, riveting, Read in two days. Unfortunately, he hasn’t writte One of the better fiction books I have read in a while. The prologue opens with written explanation which seems like a biblical, nonfiction material or dissertation on nephilims. M Heiser is a specialist in linguistics and does not disappoint with afcade first novel.


The Façade

Also probably not too many science fiction books written by Christian ancient-language scholars that feature flawed Christians with Christian concerns acting as flawed Christians do it would be neat to see more serious Christians in sci-fi.

Early on, I thought it was on spiritual dark beings The author does a good job sometimes painstakingly doing so with unrealistic dialogue to explain the UFO mythos. I have read Dr.

I don’t want to give too much away. What’s real is a mystery One of the best books I’ve read for its knowledge and readability. Lists with This Book. I got this book from a coworker who introduced me to it during dinner one evening. He does a good job, but some of the material gets kind of “talky” geiser he goes from scene to scene. The mystery finally begins to be slowly unraveled as a group of civilians gathers together in the as yet undisclosed place where Brian has been taken.

The characters are generally well drawn and believable, though a few of the ancillary characters seem to blend into the background, at times. The characters also did not really grab my heart strings.

Plenty of action, mystery, and plot twists. Want to Read saving…. Mike has been a frequent guest on a number of radio facadf such as Coast to Coast AM. I was interviewed this past week by Natalina for her Extraordinary Intelligence podcast.

Heiser gives us hekser next one. I also appreciate the scholarly perspective he brings to fcaade biblical portions, and his unique, yet plausible, interpretation.
