The Twilight Gospel : The spiritual roots of Stephenie Meyer's vampire saga Paperback / softback
by Dave Roberts
Stephenie Meyer's series has become a huge cult. The first film, Twilight, was released November 2008; the second, New Moon, will be released November 2009, with two more to follow.
The level of interest has been compared to the Harry Potter phenomenon.
Dave Roberts considers the power of the novels and the appeal of the self-disciplined vampire Edward.
He brings to bear a biblical lens, showing that while there are important moral and spiritual lessons to be learned, there is also a naive promotion of vampire mythology and the cult of beauty.
The central point of the book is to help teens (and their parents) discern what is good from what is unhealthy, helping to create robust, biblically literate young adults.
