Format: Paperback
I love this book and keep it on my desk at all times. I am very interested in dreams and feel strongly that the Lord talks to us during the night so this book was a must for me to have.
The author lists countless meanings of symbols and words in his writing, such as seeing an animal in your dream and what that animal stands for. He also gives an explanation of dreams, how to interpret them, what the Bible has to say about dreams and how you can understand yours.
I found this book to be so interesting I could not put it down and now those that know I have the book come to me to ask what something meant in a dream they had.
Humm....perhaps they need to buy their own book, don't you think?
Great read! Informative! Well worth your time.

Ira Milligan does a good job of introducing dreams and dream interpretation. This part of the book is short and easily readable within a few hours. The larger part of this book tends to dream symbols with biblical interpretations of those symbols. I think it is a great starter book for Christians looking to learn more about dreams.

Using an unashamedly biblical basis for God-sent dreams, Ira Milligan has blessed believers everywhere with his dream interpretation handbook. Few people realize that God often communicates with His children through dreams. It is one of the most common methods for hearing God. Ira's straightforward, non-mystical approach to understanding your "God dreams" is refreshing. First he lays a biblical groundwork for God dreams. Then--in what will be the most dog-eared part of the book--Ira lists a key word section of symbols often found in dreams. He also ties each symbol to Scripture. This book is an excellent tool to help you understand what God is saying to you in your dreams. Thanks Ira, and "Sweet Dreams."

This book is very helpful to any dreamer who need to continually know what God is allowing them to see. I have lots of dreams and many times I do not know the whole meaning of my dream. This book gives me guidence to what God is speaking through my dreams. After I have search the book for the symbols I seen in my dreams, I pray for a complete understanding of what to do concerning the dreams, and I always trust God's leading and the confirmations He sends concerning the dreams. This book is a very helpful guideline into symbols and meanings that God shows in dreams. This book is a must for those who know they are truly God's dreamers.

It explains the symbols of our dreams without trying to interpret. Items are listed and POSSIBLE meanings are given along with scripture references. When you read the meaning that applies to your dream, it seams to jump off the page at you! Example: HOUSE: (you, your family, church, a family member, place of security/stability). Thus if you dream of YOUR house and say a wind destroys it, when you read the possible meanings you will know who or what it is by the "zing" in your spirit when you read it. Thus you may conclude your security is under attack. Perhaps your church is in a difficult time and the devil is attacking the pastor to hurt the church. Or you see your best friends house. Thus it could be your freind is under attack. See, it doesn't interpret. It only offers possible meanings. You connect the meanings to form an iterpretation. Needs more definitions/explanations for each word. OUTSTANDING WORK!

I hardly dream at night. But on 3 occasions I had dreams, of which 2 of them were a warning of what was happening at that time. I was searching for an answer to my recent third dream and a friend passed this book to me.

This book covers on the possible interpretations of colors, animals, places and numbers in dreams, without giving any contextual or environmental contents or conditions. After reading through this book, I felt each of us has to interpret the symbols in our dreams in the right context. And the interpretation of symbols given by this book may or may not be valid to your dream. So be forewarned to merely use this for references. Eventually, you have to pray and let the Holy Spirit guide you in your interpretation of your dreams.

The giver of the dreams holds the key to the messages behind the dreams you dream.

The front material is rather interesting, but a little sketchy. Just one example of the critical "night visions" is insufficient to persuade me. But these types of dreams are real and more important with a long historical background. There are plenty of scripture references, but many seem to be a "stretch" and the context is not always clear (scripture vs. dream).

I'm most disappointed with the latter, long part of the book, which is essentially a word or term reference dictionary. Milligan has compiled an alphabetical list of words (or terms) that might occur in a dream and his understanding of what the interpretation of the words are. Granted there are plenty of scripture references, each using the word or term. Often the references have no relation to any dreams in the Bible and can be very obvious taken alone.

If you look for "flying" you'll only find a couple references to "fly" as in insects (examples given). People in my acquaintance and I have had frequent dreams involving actually flying. It can be a common dream, often progressive. Yet the text is no help. There is no reference for "conflict" or "struggle" both common elements of dreams. "Water" too is of little help.

Granted, some of the words and terms are explained and make a lot of sense.

Much of the key word dictionary is not personally helpful. If you have dreams of "six green crawfish talking on the telephone in the water", you can try to track the words down (no real themes in the book) and come up with some wild interpretation.

This book is almost like a parlor game, an archaic term, but relevant. I would look for someone to really study this topic and be a little more selective of dream elements based on the cited experience of people. We need some background. I'm sure Milligan is respected and doing some good work, but he's taken on a lot. There is mystery in our world and often only God will reveal it to you personally.
