Naked Bible 351: The Good News of the Return of the King
In earlier episodes (322, 334) we chatted with Professor Louis Markos about how the cosmologies of The Lord of the Rings and Milton’s Paradise Lost compare and contrast with the biblical worldview described by Dr. Heiser in The Unseen Realm.

I really appreciate Mike as a teacher and what he does on the naked Bible. If you want to dig deeper into the Bible this is a great way to go.
Solid food for the Spirit
Thank you Dr. Heiser for sharing your passion for God’s word with the rest of us.
I appreciate the deep dives
This podcast is heady, intentional, well thought out and executed. It is the type of podcast that you can listen to initially and then go back into the archives and listen/learn again. It’s amazing how much there is to learn about the scriptures and I’m so glad that Mike unpacks this in understandable episodes.
Thank you Mike & Trey!!
