The Bible According to Bella

New book examines the Twilight Saga and what it teaches about God

Monroe, MI – In a bold move, author Jane Wells has hijacked the most popular cultural touchstone of recent years andturned it on its head. With insight, humor and great compassion Wells uses scenes from the hugely popular Twilight Saga, a four-book and soon to be five-movie juggernaut, to illustrate just why the saga is so popular.

Glitter in the Sun

Glitter in the Sun: A Bible Study Searching for Truth in the Twilight Saga (November 14, 2011), came out of a women’s Bible study Wells taught at her local coffee shop. While the group came from different denominations and backgrounds, everyone had read and enjoyed the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer – and soon Wells found herself illustrating theological truths with scenes from the series. It quickly became obvious to her that the Twilight phenomenon was a rare window in time when huge portions of the population share a common ground that can be turned into a ladder toward God.

“I believe Twilight is about vampires to the same degree Romeo and Juliet is about Italians,” Wells said. “It’s not about who the characters are, but about what they represent. We don’t debate Team Edward and Team Jacob because they are vampire and werewolf, but because one represents eternal love and the other represents selfless love.”

Glitter in the Sun is set up as a 16-week Bible study. Each chapter begins with a scene from one of the Twilight books or films then delves into Scripture addressing the truth captured in the fictional scene. Many chapters contain illustrations from Wells’ own life experiences in areas such as self-control, faith and the pain of spiritual growth. Small group study guides are included for each chapter.

Glitter in the Sun can be purchased at Amazon.com.
