Stephenie Meyer's bestselling Twilight saga took the young adult fiction world by storm. Although by no means dominant or even particularly overt, Meyer's use of religion nonetheless provides for some intriguing interpretive possibilities. Topics from young love, to abstinence, to the value of family and friends are infused in the stories. Love as an agent of change and a motivational impulse for self-sacrifice also receives significant emphasis. Could Eve and Mary be a pattern for Bella? What about Edward--could he be seen as a Christ-figure?
From Twilight to Breaking Dawn assists readers in thinking about the religious themes and images found throughout the Twilight saga. A single Twilight character or issue is discussed in each chapter and concludes with discussion questions for individual or group study. This book includes ideas from Judaism, Protestantism, Catholicism, and Mormonism. From Twilight to Breaking Dawn is perfect for parents wanting to discuss these books with their children or for Twilight lovers interested in pursuing the deeper meaning that lies at the heart of these books.
