Product Description

The spirituality and worldview of the Twilight Saga are fascinating, but they do not sit easily with orthodox Christianity. The Twilight Gospel by Dave Roberts carefully assesses what is praiseworthy and what is less so. It will help you to think more clearly about issues raised in the series, such as occult spirits, myths and legends, sexuality, materialism and more. Designed to help teens and parents discern what is healthy and unhealthy, The Twilight Gospel will help create shrewd, literate young adults as they encounter secular pop culture.

Publisher's Description

The blockbuster Twilight Saga is being read by teenager and adult alike. These powerful novels are gaining even more popularity as the movies hit theaters. But what should a Christian response be? And is there a helpful way to approach a teenager or young adult captivated with the books without alienating her?

Dave Roberts read The Twilight Saga and while he appreciated the literary qualities, there werealso parts that troubled him. As he considered the books as a whole and spoke to teenagers who read them, he saw the need for a resource. In The Twilight Gospel Dave brings to bear a Biblical lens showing that while there are important moral and spiritual lessons to be learned, there is also a promotion of a non-Christian worldview. He addresses such topics as the cult of beauty, the appeal of the self-disciplined vampire Edward, life after death, the use of myths and legends, sexuality, personal spiritual power, and the lure of materialism.

Crisply written and with a gracious spirit, "The Twilight Gospel" will help teens, their parents, and their pastors discern what is good from what is unhealthy in the novels and equip them to be biblically literate readers.

    I found this to be a very disappointing book. I am a teenager, and have been looking for good books to counter the Twilight craze of my friends. I was hoping that Dave Roberts would actualy combat the many things that are wrong with twilight (for example, the main guy in this book is a vampire! What are we even doing reading this junk? Is a vampire pure, holy, lovely, or admirable? Phil. 4:8. I don't think so!). Instead, this man acts as though there is nothing wrong with these books. He only points out the good points (and few be therein!) and the way to Jesus Christ. That's all good and well (I mean, who doesn't want to share Christ's love for us?), but I was looking for guidance on the many things wrong with the Twilight series. My advice to everyone - if you HAVE to read this book, don't waste your money on it - get it from the Library, and use your hard earned savings to buy 'The Twilight Phenomenon', or 'The Trouble With Twilight' (found on this website - I don't know the names of the authors :)!
