Are you having weird dreams? Maybe it’s the result of that nacho cheese dip or the pizza you ate last night? Or maybe you’re having spiritual dreams because God is trying to talk to you!

The language of dreams is full of cryptic symbols and parables to decipher. Learning the meaning of dreams is an incredible way to get closer to God and go deeper in your walk with Him. When you go to sleep and have a dream you are receiving an invitation from Father God to learn more about His plan for your life. 

In my pursuit to understand my own dreams from a Christian perspective, I used the following top 4 Christian dream books to help in my dream interpretation journey.

I want to share these biblical dream interpretation resources with you so you can see how easy it is to learn how to analyze your dreams with the help of the Holy Spirit.

List Of Top 4 Christian Dream Interpretation Books

#1 – The Life Application Study Bible

I can’t give you Christian dream book recommendations without first encouraging you to read the actual bible stories that inspire dream interpretation right?! The Life Application Study Bible is a great resource because it is a study bible offering extensive commentary on the scripture. 

I encourage you to go and read Genesis 41 about Pharaoh asking Joseph to interpret his dream. When you read this passage in the Life Application Study Bible you will learn the context of the story. For example, the study bible references Genesis 41:14 in the footnotes saying that it was not Joseph’s knowledge of dreams that helped him interpret the Pharaoh’s dream that day. His knowledge of God led him to know what to do and say in the situation. 

This is such a great reminder, and important direction to the body of Christ, that everything we do should always be birthed out of our knowledge of God as opposed to anything else.

#2 – The Divinity Code to Understanding Your Dreams and Visions

The Divinity Code to Understanding Your Dreams and Visions took my dream interpretation skills to a new level. This book offers practical teaching on dreams with biblical references. The authors discuss common dream themes and give a step-by-step case study examination of actual dreams. It was after reading this book that I learned the concept that dreams are interpreted as symbols and each symbol can have many adaptations. So interesting!

One of my favorite parts of this book is the A-Z dream dictionary. It’s one of the most extensive dream symbol dictionaries I have encountered to help with the entire dream interpretation process. 

The deep commitment these authors have made to bring together the key principles of Christian dream interpretation is incredible. The examples in this book helped me with straightforward interpretation and understanding what God is actually speaking to me through my dreams. On a side note, I keep this book next to my bed on my nightstand because I reference it so often. And, according to Amazon, this book is a readers’ favorite. 

#3 – The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Dreams You Dream

Dream interpretation for me was such a mystery in the beginning. Ira Mulligan’s book, The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Dreams You Dream, was so easy to understand and offered practical theology on dreams including explaining prophetic dreams. It was the first dream book I had ever read and it certainly piqued my interest in the ministry of dream interpretation. 

This dynamic book helped me to learn the purpose God had for my dreams. I also learned how to break down key principles like the universal dream symbols of numbers and colors in your dream. His book includes a great Christian dream interpretation dictionary as well.

#4 – The Name Book

Did you know that the names of the people in your dreams can sometimes be very significant to the dream interpretation? I highly encourage you to use The Name Book because it is a Christian name-meaning book. 

The reason I highly recommend this particular book is because of the detailed analysis the author offers of each name. You will find out the language origin and cultural origin of each name as well as the inherent meaning and the spiritual meaning. My favorite part is learning the scripture associated with each name, which has helped me tremendously for accurate dream interpretation.

My Go-To Books for Dream Interpretation

Each of these books has helped me tremendously! If you are trying to save money, I recommend starting with two of the books. Since you probably already have a bible, I would start with the Name Book. Then you can choose one of the dream dictionaries (Ira Milligan’s Book or The Divinity Code). Of course, all four books are amazing but I get it if you want to start with only two of the top 4 dream books to save money.

Christian Dream Interpretation Is A Treasure Hunt With The Holy Spirit

5 Steps to Dream Analysis Worksheet Digital Download

I think of each of my dreams as a treasure hunt with the Holy Spirit. When you dream it creates a spark that announces there is a treasure to be found. As you learn the concepts of Christian dream interpretation, you will understand your dreams.

The heavenly treasure from your dreams is the life direction you receive from each dream. What we do with the heavenly treasure is up to us. Your dream is God’s invitation to you to seek more of Him. It does not stop at finding the treasure. That is only the beginning!

I have created a Dream Life Worksheet that is a step-by-step guide showing you how to analyze your dreams. The dream life worksheet helps you to organize each piece of dream interpretation (prayer, symbols, name meanings, etc.). Then it guides you in piecing them together to get the interpretation.

Dream interpretation, just like anything, takes a little practice before mastering the skill. This worksheet will help you to analyze and receive the meaning of your dream.

Steward Your Dreams

What you steward you will get more of! By taking your dreams seriously and seeking Jesus for their meaning you are stewarding the heavenly treasure given to you. In this stewardship God will look upon your life and call you faithful. Then He responds to your faithfulness with His faithfulness. And, your journey of seeking Him goes deeper!

To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless

Psalm 18:25, NIV
