Understanding What God Says in Dreams


Adults dream four to six times a night. Sometimes we remember the dreams; sometimes not. Because many people are fascinated by dreams there is a plethora of books, many new age books, on how to interpret dreams. LeClaire believes that many, but not all dreams come from God. The Bible is filled with dreams from Abraham and Jacob to Daniel and Paul, even Herod’s wife had a dream that played a part in Jesus’ crucifixion story.

The book discusses the various types of dreams and includes sections on dream symbols and interpretation. I liked the fact that in addition to biblical symbols, the author presented a section on cultural symbols. We often don’t think about it, but the same symbol can be interpreted differently in different cultures.

The author also includes descriptions of dreams and their interpretation. Even though we try to interpret our dreams, we’re unsure of how the information we glean should be used. I found the section on application of dream revelations to be particularly interesting. She gives examples of how to take advantage of dream information, but cautions against trying to force revelations into reality.

I recommend this book for anyone interested in dream interpretation with an emphasis on the biblical aspects of dreams.

I received this book from BookLookBloggers for this review.
