Dreams: God's Forgotten Language

First published twenty years ago, this revised edition of John Sanford's classic exploration of the psychological and spiritual significance of dreams draws on the work of C.G. Jung to show how dreams can help us find healing and wholeness and reconnect us to a living spiritual world.

Featuring a new preface by the author and using case histories from his own experience as a counselor, Dreams traces the role of dreams in the Bible, analyzing their nature and examining how Christians, through fear and the constraints of dogma, have come to reject the visions through which God speaks to humanity, making dreams -- in Sanford's words -- "God's forgotten language."

User Review  - Alexia Gordon - Goodreads

Read this for a dream work group. Dense material to read through, dry in parts, but provided good insight into the interpretation of dreams. Read full review

Review: Dreams: God's Forgotten Language

User Review  - Carrie Hines - Goodreads

I didn't care for the psychological basis of his theory. I did agree that dream interpretation must be done based on the dreamer's relationship to the people, places, and things. Water doesn't ALWAYS represent the same thing to all people. Read full review
