Great Book Mar 18, 2007
I found this book to be very helpful. Mr Kelsey has a refreshingly honest aproach to whatever subject he writes about. I like the way he incorporates Christian truth with psychology research. I agree that dreams may be one way to connect to the spiritual world.
The Best Book About Dreams Jan 2, 2007
This book was extremely helpful for me personally. The first part of the book is a survey of the Old Testament, where Kelsey discusses the dreams of Abraham, Joseph, Daniel, and others.
There is also an extended discussion of the dreams and visions of the New Testament, featuring Joseph (the stepfather of Jesus) and Paul. Kelsey also notes that there is no indication anywhere that God has stopped communicating to us in this way.
He also surveys the history of dreams and dream interpretation in the history of the church. There are also brief discussions of dreams as they are understood in Islam and in other faiths.
He suggests near the end of the book that one way to interpret a dream is to see your own situation in each character of your dream, as our feelings and experiences are often projected onto others in our dreams
Morton Kelsey is a counselor and an Episcopal priest, and he is well qualified to write this extensive study. I highly recommend it.
God, Dreams, and Rev.; A Christian Interpretation of Dreams Feb 19, 2005
I was rather disappointed by this book. Actually it is very well written and researched, but the title "...A Christian Interpretation of Dreams" is very misleading. It gives the impression that this book would address the art of interpretation and explain how to understand some of the rich symbolic language of dreams. The book elaborates in depth on the history of dream interpretation but has extremely little to offer when it comes to interpreting the symbolic language. Every time I got to a new section heading that sounded promising I was disappointed because all the writer does, is that he keeps emphasizing and illustrating that God does speak through dreams and how important it is to interpret and take them seriously, but for a book that size he offers next to nothing on how to interpret the symbolism. If you want to read about the biblical and Christian history of dream interpretation, (like who took dreams seriously and who didn't), then this book is for you. But if you want a practical guide on how to interpret dreams from a Christian perspective you will be very disappointed.
Theologically interesting, easily readable, very practical Jan 18, 2004
This book explores the question of how God communicates with man through dreams. Kelsey reviews the history of both philosophy and theology regarding dreams and visions. He correlates the Scriptures with the sophisticated modern insights of Freud and Jung.
This book is thorough enough for the scholar, yet easily readable by the layman. I enjoyed it because it convinced me that God still gives the believer insight through dreams today. Our spiritual lives can be enriched by prayerful attention to our dreams.
Dreams are gifts from God Apr 13, 2000
A broad look at the biblical reality of God speaking through dreams. I started reading Morton Kelsey in the mid 70's after experiencing very potent dreams on the after life. What a blessing to realize that I wasn't alone, that since the beginning of time God has spoken and visited many in this way. This book does give many answers to the questions of God speaking through dreams. Morton Kelsey not only gives you details on scripture but also gives us a history of lives that have been transformed by paying attention to dreams. Other author's to explore on the gift of dreams are John Sanford and Carl Jung.
