Summary
With over one hundred million copies in print, and having generated a series of hugely popular films, the Twilight saga is one of the most successful fiction series ever written. But despite its tremendous popularity, few have questioned Twilight's theological assumptions or noticed the disturbing messages it sends out about women, violence and sexual stereotypes. Elaine Heath is both deeply admiring and deeply critical of the Twilight novels, and offers here an insightful analysis of what they say about temptation, sin, salvation, heaven and hell, sex, power, reconciliation and organized religion. Whether or not you are already a fan, this book will lead you to a deeper appreciation of both the good news and the bad news that Twilight tells about women, sex and God.
