Secrets of the Dry Bones: Ezekiel 37:1-14 - The Mystery of a Prophet’s Vision by Susan Rohrer is an in-depth explanation of the passage of scripture about the valley of dry bones. On a spiritual level, Miss Rohrer is suggesting that each person must dig deeper and avoid looking at life’s events at face value. Her analysis of the hymn writer William Cowper is linked to the passage as well. In essence, Miss Rohrer is saying that even a published and renowned hymnologist had low or 'dry bone' moments in his life. This sojourn in the valley of dry bones should make us realize that we need to rely on God. The habitual practice of depending on God would help us in the trials of life. We would therefore avoid being in valleys of dry bones and would remain spiritually renewed.

Miss Rohrer’s analysis of Ezekiel 37:1-14 is presented in the format of a criminal case. This is an ingenious method and it really compels the reader to dig deeper and read on. On an intellectual level, you don’t even realize that you are reading about a scripture passage! I like the way that Miss Rohrer injects probing questions into the chapters. This allows the reader to relate to the book in a personal way. It also encourages accountability. Each person has to answer to God. According to Miss Rohrer, we should not allow our innermost desires to lead us astray. We must use the Word of God as a rudder to steer us in the right direction. Secrets of the Dry Bones: Ezekiel 37:1-14 - The Mystery of a Prophet’s Vision is an uplifting and interesting book. It really grips you and I recommend it to anyone who needs spiritual refreshment.
