Christian author Jane Wells, a talented small-group leader, presents a Bible study based on the hugely successful Twilight novels and movies. Many Christian churches may never have considered discussing a series of novels about vampires and werewolves, but church leaders need not fear Twilight, Wells shows us. She argues that God speaks in many ways. In the Bible, God wrot ...more

Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight meets Christianity—an unlikely pairing, you might think. Yet, this is precisely the marriage Ms. Wells has accomplished in Glitter in the Sun.

Throughout this Bible study, she takes important threads running through the Twilight Saga, such as Bella’s decision to leave behind her mother and the sunshine she worships to start over in rainy Forks, and the unconditional love that results from the process of imprinting, then relates them to stories in the Bible to show how g

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.

Glitter in the Sun is a a Bible study that uses aspects from the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer to emphasize and reteach common lessons and morals from the Bible. For example, that we are all "imprinted" with God's love in the way that the werewolf pack imprints their mates- a love that is there whenever we need it, always. At the end of each chapters, Mrs. Wells has provided discussion questions and activities to help spark conversation and i

Glitter in the Sun is a very well written book, and an easy read. This book is meant to be paired with the Twilight series and the Bible, and it is used to host Bible study groups (small groups). I am a part of a Bible study (small group) where we get together each week to talk about the weekly sermon and scripture, then discuss how it relates to what is going on in our lives. I love being apart of our small group, and I definitely feel that this book would make an excellent study. It was packed ...more

I really didn't care for this book as much as I had wanted to I really enjoyed the Twilight series and I wanted to really like this book more than I did. I have a difficulty when people compare books and stories to the Bible and don't really pull through the full theology off the Bible verses the storiesetc. I know they did this with Harry Potter I know they've done this with other books in the past and to be honest I just didn't see it and it didn't really work for me. As always the writing is ...more

Glitter in the Sun was a nice little book to read, when I finally managed to make myself get through the entire thing. Had a hard time finish it, simply because my attention kept wavering and drifting off elsewhere. Not a bad read all-in-all, but I most liekly would not recommend it to any of my bookclubs or local institutions due to the fact that it was difficult to finish it all without having to force myself to remember about it sitting on my desk.

A copy of the book was provided via Goodreads

This book makes an interesting connection between Bella's love for Edward and our own love with the Lord. I never would have made the connection myself, but this is a great jumping off point for someone who is in love with Twilight and wants to deepen their relationship with God.

I am currently reading this book and I love it! I love how it has twilight references in it also. It was a book I won on goodreads and a great one also!

Jane Wells has always gravitated toward reading material that pushed other people’s buttons. It was a dinosaur book that upset her 2nd grade teacher at a Baptist school. Now it’s vampires and dystopias that catch her imagination. In them she finds parables and allegories illustrating God’s ancient plan in a language that is uniquely modern – and easily understood by people who may have never set f ...more
