Brother Bytheway has written an excellent book which is simple and easy to understand and yet at the same time deep and thought provoking.
Lehi's dream is a like a roadmap map for our lives and full of symbolic meaning to bless all who will heed it, and brother Bytheway explains it in a easy and yet soul expanding way, GREAT BOOK!

Lifestyles of the Great and Spacious! Isn't that a fun title for a book! The sub-title is Finding your path in Lehi's Dream. Did you know that a whole book was written by John Bytheway on one chapter of the Book of Mormon? I am amazed! The chapter is 1 Nephi chapter 8 or many call this chapter "Lehi's Dream." John Bytheway says in part of the introduction, "The better we understand Lehi's dream, the better we will be able to hold fast on our way, recognizing the lures, temptations, and mists of darkness for what they are, and arrive-and remain-at the tree of life." I learned a great deal while reading this book. It is a book that I will keep at the front of the bookcase to review and read again.

We are so blessed to have the scriptures!
But do we read them?
Do we heed them?
Do we sometimes struggle to understand them?
I know I struggle with understanding... that is why I am so grateful that authors like John Bytheway share their knowledge of the scriptures with us.
I LOVE how he starts the book...
"It's only thirty-two verses, or 982 words in length, but it's a life changer--and unforgettable and highly applicable metaphor. We call it Lehi's dream."
He then goes on to explain about each part of the vision:
the tree of life
the rod of iron
the mists of darkness
the ominous great and spacious building
He tells what each means in his Thoughts, Insights, and Observation section he has in each chapter.
And then my FAVORITE part...
Each chapter has an APPLYING THE DREAM TO OUR REALITY.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book and now have so much greater understanding...and I will try to seek more "Tree-of Life" moments!
