Touched by a Vampire by Beth Felker Jones Book Tour Review and Giveaway!



Touched by a Vampire Book Cover


I had never heard of Beth Felker Jones before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this book. Its a short, quick read that explains to you the biblical sense of the “Twilight Series” by Stephenie Myers. If you haven’t heard the books yet, you may not want to read this, as it will give away big parts of the story line. I found some of her insights to be very interesting. I would suggest this to anyone who wants to view the book in different ways, or for those parents who are afraid to let their kids read the books, because your afraid of what they will be learning. This book will clear up a lot of your questions. Or for any of you out their that run a book club. There is a 3-4 page section in the back with discussion questions for you.

About the Book:
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.
