Description:

Understanding the Meaning and Significance of Dreaming

God gives dreams during critical and dangerous times, often arriving at pivotal moments in the flow of human history. If we can understand God’s dealings with humanity through dreams, we are better positioned to understand His will for us today. God of Dreams offers in-depth treatment of all types of dreamers and dreams, particularly the dreamers in scripture and their unique purpose in God’s plan.

Author and doctor of psychology Archie W.N. Roy, PhD investigates dream interpreting and its biblical context. In God of Dreams, Roy focuses on dream language and symbol—their relationship to various kinds of dreams—and why we have dreams. He considers the insights we can gain from the modern day psychoanalysts, as well as from famous Christian dreamers such as John Newton, John Paul Jackson and Jackie Pullinger. He also critiques recent Christian writing which he feels has gone too far in its uncritical embrace of analytical psychology.

We live in a different time from the days recorded in the Old Testament. We have received more revelation, especially regarding God’s grace and the way of salvation by means of the new covenant. But are we also not living in a time of critical junctures and pivotal moments? There is a place for listening to God’s dreams in these present times of turbulent change. We should listen to what He says through all His means, including dreams, and take action.

The intended readership includes: the general Christian public interested in dreams, visions and the prophetic; Christian academics and theologians; bible college students; Christian students interested in dreams and Depth Psychology.
