If I own Supernatural: What the Bible Teaches about the  Unseen World - and Why It Matters by Micheal S. Heiser is there any need or anything to gain by also purchasing The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible also by Heiser?

I would love to hear your take on this. I'm willing to get The Unseen Realm but I don't want to spend the money if it doesn't gain me much over just reading Supernatural

Thanks for your wisdom and insight.

See here: 

In short, yes the Unseen Realm has much more content and footnotes.  If it were the opposite way, I'd say no but the Unseen would be an upgrade

Thanks Mattillo.

I got Supernatural as my FL free book this month and I think for now I'll stick with that. If I find myself agreeing with his thoughts in Supernatural I may add The Unseen Realm in the future. But there were enough negatives in the link you provided to make me cautious about this subject.

Sure thing.  I really enjoyed Heiser's book.  I read the Unseen Realm so I'm not quite sure how in-depth Supernatural will get.  I went back and reread the post I sent and I wouldn't give too much weight to those quotes.  As you get deeper you'll see what I'm talking about.  It isn't that God NEEDS to consult a council... it is just the way he set it up.  In the end, God is omniscient so even if he setup a council the end result is already known. 

That is how I look at it at least.  He recently published a book on Angels and a Demons volume is forthcoming.  In-between Unseen and Angels is Reversing Hermon.  Enjoy!

PS He also has a great website and a fan letter / podcast you can subscribe to.
