Product Description

The Twilight saga has become one of the most successful fictional series ever written, with more than one hundred million copies in print and several box office blockbusters. Despite Twilight's tremendous commercial success, few readers have analyzed its theological teachings or the messages Stephanie Meyer might be sending to women and teenage girls. This book offers both a feminist critique of Twilight and a theological review of the stories' ideas about salvation, heaven and hell, power, reconciliation, resurrection, and organized religion. Includes discussion questions for youth and adult groups.

Publisher's Description

The Twilight saga has become one of the most successful fiction series ever written, with more than one hundred million copies in print and several blockbuster films. Despite the tremendous commercial success Twilight has generated, few readers have analyzed its theological teachings or the messages Stephenie Meyer might be sending to women and teenage girls. This book offers both a feminist critique of Twilight and a theological review of the stories' ideas about salvation, heaven and hell, power, reconciliation, resurrection, and organized religion.

Elaine Heath writes in an accessible voice, calling attention to both the good news of Twilight's theology and the bad news of its gender stereotypes and depictions of violence against women.

The book includes questions for youth and adult groups or for classroom discussions.
