Praise for"Touched by a Vampire "Like many who care about young adults, I've puzzled over the recent vampire craze. I applaud "Touched by a Vampire for shiningits brilliant light into a somewhat dark and mysterious world. Utilizing the existing teen fascination of the Twilight books in order to spark an open discussion about love, life, and faith is both smart and savvy. This thoughtful book is a much neededtool for parents, youth leaders, and teens." --MELODY CARLSON, author of the Diary of aTeenage Girl series "'But Mom, you'd "like this vampire book. It teaches that true love waits!' They knew which pitch to give, and Felker Jones hastheir number. This book is itself a page-turner, diagnosing vampiric love as meager fare. It turns out true love is not so muchabout waiting for Mr. Bite, but being abundantly blessed at God's banquet."--AMY LAURA HALL, associate professor ofChristian Ethics, Duke University, and authorof "Conceiving Parenthood and "Kierkegaard andthe Treachery of Love"""""

Vom Verlag:

EXAMINING TWILIGHT THROUGH A BIBLICAL LENS People around the world are asking the same question, enraptured with Edward and Bella's forbidden romance in the Twilight Saga, a four-book serial phenomenon written by Stephenie Meyer. The bestsellers tell the story of a regular girl's relationship with a vampire who has chosen to follow his "good" side. But the Saga isn't just another fantasy-it's teaching girls about love, sex, and purpose. With 48 million copies in print and a succession of upcoming blockbuster films, now is the time to ask the important question: Can vampires teach us about God's plan for love? Touched by a Vampire is the first book to investigate the themes of the Twilight Saga from a Biblical perspective. Some Christian readers have praised moral principles illustrated in the story, such as premarital sexual abstinence, which align with Meyer's Mormon beliefs. But ultimately, Beth Felker Jones examines whether the story's redemptive qualities outshine its darkness. Cautionary, thoughtful, and challenging, Touched by a Vampire is written for Twilight fans, parents, teachers, and pop culture enthusiasts. It includes an overview of the series for those unfamiliar with the storyline and a discussion guide for small groups.
