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.
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.
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.
