The Dream Book by Lee Ann Rubsam asks whether God might still speak through dreams. Chapter two is full of biblical examples. Chapter three differentiates between “God-dreams,” which include colorful messages, and “self-dreams” influenced by our health. Chapter four deals with the fourth source of dreams: the devil. God-sent dreams may be disturbing warnings, but demonic dreams usually contain lies. Chapter four affirms God’s promise to share secrets. Chapter six recommends developing a receptive mind. Chapter seven commences the fascinating subject of dream interpretation. God reveals meaning in the details. Chapters eight and nine discuss symbolic and literal dreams, snapshots, panoramas, and repetitive themes. Chapter ten talks about common symbols, including animals, people, and colors. Chapter eleven covers numbers, as used in the Bible. Chapter twelve is about intercession. Chapter thirteen is about interpreting for others. Chapter fourteen is about the application and is followed by a Christian dream dictionary with Bible texts attached.
Truly fascinating, thought-provoking, and inspirational, The Dream Book is essential reading. I liked the way Rubsam challenges the reader to open their mind regarding prophetic communications embedded in dreams. The analysis and classification of dream sources were shrewd and helpful. I was impressed by the “Dictionary of Bible Symbols”. This section was about sixty pages and must have required a great deal of research. I also enjoyed the personal testimony which indicated Rubsam practices what she teaches. Incorporating theology, physiology, and real-life anecdotes, The Dream Book by Lee Ann Rubsam provides the complete spiritual development package.
