In contrast to the last book I reviewed on dreams, Seeing the Voice of God is a book that constantly focuses the reader back on the Lord and supports everything in it with valid scriptural references. I found the chapters on the science of sleep offered insight into my own sleep patterns, the dream symbol dictionary was extensive (over 1000 images) and supported by Bible verses, and the real-life stories of those who have come out of sin situations revolving around dreams was truly inspiration.
The chapter on interpretation was one of the spots where I really became convinced of the deep Biblical emphasis of the book. Laura Harris Smith writes,
Remember that the best interpreter is the Holy Spirit within you. The same symbol could speak different things to different people, and only you live in your life’s story and know for sure.
This sentence is a wonderful example of how she continually points back to God throughout the book as she talks about dreaming, and, to be honest, there’s not a whole lot beyond that I can say. If you’re looking for a book that will constantly point you back to the Lord on this sensative topic then I highly recommend Seeing the Voice of God. I’m giving it 5/5 stars. Below is a video preview of the book.
For the record, I did receive a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily favorable, review.
