In a world where Christians are often accused of anti-intellectualism and blind faith, it is very refreshing to encounter scholars like Dr. Michael Heiser, who prove that Christianity and academia need not be mutually exclusive. Michael has earned a PhD in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages, an M.A. in Ancient History, as well as an M.A. in Hebrew Studies.
It was a pleasure talking to Dr. Heiser. He graciously agreed to discuss a wide variety of topics with me, and I know that you are going to enjoy this discussion. We cover the supernatural, Creation, the nature of the Universe, and much more.
You can always listen to our show on iTunes, and please remember to rate and review us! Beyond Extraordinary is also proud to be part of the Revelations Radio Network, where you can find this and many other wonderful podcasts with a Christian Worldview.

Mike’s review of the film Noah: Impressions on the Noah Movie
The music transition between the intro and the interview is Hurrian Hymn Number 6…. The world’s oldest known melody from 1400 BC. I thought it would be appropriate :) You can hear the whole thing HERE.
