Bulkeley, Kelly, “Dreaming and Religious Conversion”. I Lewis R. Rambo & Charles E. Farhadian, The Oxford Handbook of Religious Conversion. (2014)
“Dreams have played many roles in the history of religious conversion. This chapter looks at the significance of contemporary dream research for the study of conversion experiences. Recurrent features in dream content can illuminate shared themes in conversion experiences across historical and cultural boundaries, enabling a more nuanced and empirically grounded comparison of conversions in different contexts. Dream research also provides new ways of understanding individual cases of religious conversion by highlighting the multilayered interaction of personal, cultural, and spiritual forces at work in conversion dreams. If one of the goals of conversion studies is to understand the dynamic complexity of people’s experiences when they go through a major change of religious outlook, then a familiarity with contemporary dream research can be a valuable means of identifying the different strands of meaning woven into those transformative experiences.”

Bulkeley, Kelly, “Conversion dreams”. In Pastoral Psychology 44(1):3-11 · September 1995
“Conversion dreams—i.e., dreams prompting a profound transformation of religious belief and identity—have been reported in many different cultural and religious traditions. This essay argues that although such reports may appear to be mere fabrications, the experience of conversion dreams is a legitimate and important phenomenon. The essay provides three examples of conversion dreams reported in Christian contexts and uses research from the fields of religious studies, psychology, and anthropology to demonstrate that such dreams provide a bridge to connect and synthesize religious elements which had been in conflict at both the personal and cultural levels.”

Bulkeley, Kelly, Dreaming in the worlds religions: A comparative history
“From Biblical stories of Joseph interpreting Pharoh's dreams in Egypt to prayers against bad dreams in the Hindu Rg Veda, cultures all over the world have seen their dreams first and foremost as religiously meaningful experiences. In this widely shared view, dreams are a powerful medium of transpersonal guidance offering the opportunity to communicate with sacred beings, gain valuable wisdom and power, heal suffering, and explore new realms of existence. Conversely, the world's religious and spiritual traditions provide the best source of historical information about the broad patterns of human dream life. Dreaming in the World's Religions provides an authoritative and engaging one-volume resource for the study of dreaming and religion. It tells the story of how dreaming has shaped the religious history of humankind, from the Upanishads of Hinduism to the Qur'an of Islam, from the conception dream of Buddhas mother to the sexually tempting nightmares of St. Augustine, from the Ojibwa vision quest to Australian Aboriginal journeys in the Dreamtime. Bringing his background in psychology to bear, Kelly Bulkeley incorporates an accessible consideration of cognitive neuroscience and evolutionary psychology into this fascinating overview. Dreaming in the World's Religions offers a carefully researched, accessibly written portrait of dreaming as a powerful, unpredictable, often iconoclastic force in human religious life.”

Communion with God Ministries, Dreams and Visions Throughout Church History

Keskiaho, Jesse, Dreams and Visions in the Early Middle Ages: The Reception and Use of Patristic Ideas 400 - 900. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2015.
"Dreams and visions played important roles in the Christian cultures of the early Middle Ages. But not only did tradition and authoritative texts teach that some dreams were divine: some also pointed out that this was not always the case. Exploring a broad range of narrative sources and manuscripts, Jesse Keskiaho investigates how the teachings of Augustine of Hippo and Pope Gregory the Great on dreams and visions were read and used in different contexts. Keskiaho argues that the early medieval processes of reception in a sense created patristic opinion about dreams and visions, resulting in a set of authoritative ideas that could be used both to defend and to question reports of individual visionary experiences. This book is a major contribution to discussions about the intellectual place of dreams and visions in the early Middle Ages, and underlines the creative nature of early medieval engagement with authoritative texts."

McNamara, Patrick, “The Science and Theology of Dreams”. Theology and ScienceVolume 16, 2018 - Issue 4
“Although dreams were. an important theological topic for the early Christians and the Church Fathers, there has been less Christian theological work on dreams in the modern era. I argue that dreams of the OT/NT should be treated together with “visions,” and that these dreams/visions are rooted in REM neurobiology and are manifestations of the utilization of the higher capacities of the mind/brain/soul that allow the individual to access information not otherwise available to the waking mind. Thus knowledge derived from dreams/visions should be (after appropriate discernment criteria are applied) treated as an ongoing and additional source for revelation”

Patricia M. Davis, Dreams and Visions in the Anglo-Saxon Conversion to Christianity. Dreaming 15(2):75-88 · June 2005
“Dreams and visions were reported to be powerful agents of change in the 7th-century conversion of Anglo-Saxon England to Christianity. They were presented as instrumental in the introduction and integration of this new religious/cultural paradigm. These dreams and visions combine Anglo-Saxon and Christian themes and metaphors. This article presents reports of dreams and visions extracted from historical sources and grouped into 8 categories: conception, vocation, dream songs/poems, temptations and consolation, otherworld journeys, prophecies of death and destruction, gloriosus obitus (saints at death), and saints' relics. These categories were created to reflect the human life cycle and to facilitate use by other dream researchers. The distinction between dreams and visions made by the hagiographers of the time is significantly different than the contemporary distinction between dreams and visions.”

Sears, Robert Eugene, “Dreams and Christian Conversion: Gleanings from a Pentecostal Church . Mission Studies 35(2):183-203 · 2018 
”Despite consideration from missiologists studying Muslim-to-Christian conversion, the role of dreams in contemporary Christian conversion has not received widespread attention. Additionally, though researchers have frequently noted the use of dreams among Pentecostal/charismatic Christians, this finding stands in need of exploration vis-à-vis the concept of conversion. This study will address each of these issues and further the general understanding of the role of dreams in Christian conversion by examining this topic in contemporary Nepal, a predominantly Hindu nation with a rapidly growing, extensively Pentecostal/charismatic Christian community. Relying on data from a combination of surveys, interviews, and participant observation, this study discusses the prevalence, preconditions, processes, and impact of dream-related conversion vis-à-vis a Pentecostal church context in Nepal.”
