It is inevitable that whenever a book or TV show becomes really really popular, that a Christian will write a sort of response and tell us how to see it from a Christian point of view. Twilight is huge and so we now have a guide with questions to help us know how to think about Twilight.
It's not that I'm opposed to the idea. I actually really love and support the idea of Christians reading and discussing books together with their kids rather than keeping them from reading them. This book just wasn't as much as I had hoped it would be. I think if the author had drawn less conclusions and instead offered up more questions and study of passages that it would be a more effective and useful tool.
Basically, she sets out to explore the themes in Twilight and then shares what she feels is the truth. It's not that I always disagreed with her, it's just that I think parents will find this more useful than teenagers. Check out Touched by a Vampire on the publishers website. They provided me with a copy of this book.
