Examine the Twilight Saga series 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 millions of copies sold and several blockbuster films, it is 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.

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 shining
its 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 needed
tool for parents, youth leaders, and teens."
-MELODY CARLSON, author of the Diary of a
Teenage 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 has
their number. This book is itself a page-turner, diagnosing vampiric love as meager fare. It turns out true love is not so much
about waiting for Mr. Bite, but being abundantly blessed at God's banquet."
-AMY LAURA HALL, associate professor of
Christian Ethics, Duke University, and author
of Conceiving Parenthood and Kierkegaard and
the Treachery of Love
