Bible study for beginners: is it all about the rules?
If you are at all familiar with the Twilight Saga, you will know there is really only one rule vampires need to follow—don’t let the humans recognize what you are. That is why the Cullen clan has made its home in Washington State, where the sun won’t reflect off their sparkly skin.
Christianity can be boiled down to one rule, too—well, one rule with two parts: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. Every other rule in the Bible falls under these two categories.
Of course, the logical follow up question is, what does that mean?
Glitter in the Sun: A Bible Study Searching for Truth in the Twilight Saga, a 16-chapter Bible study book, is meant to help you figure that out. For example, Chapter One starts with the question, why did Bella leave Phoenix and move to Forks? The answer is free will, just as you have free will when it comes to choosing to follow God or not. Chapter 2 starts with Bella telling Edward she wants to be with him forever. Everyone is born with that longing for a forever love, it is the God-shaped hole that will not be satisfied with anything less.
Glitter in the Sun: A Bible Study Searching for Truth in the Twilight Saga can be used as an individual Bible study or as a small group discussion guide, and is ideal for youth groups or Twi-moms everywhere. Glitter in the Sun can be purchased from this web site or from Amazon.com.
