A while back I posted comments in response to an article by John Granger published in a Christian journal called Touchstone. The article pointed to a number of “Mormon” ideologies the author found within Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series. I took issue with most of the author’s conclusions and posited that he seemed informed more by anti-Mormon literature than by any primary sources.
Apparently this article was part of research Granger was doing for a book that is now available called Spotlight: A Close-Up Look at the Artistry and Meaning of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga. There is a review of the book here which suggests that Granger’s bibliography is loaded with Mormon and non-Mormon sources. I can’t imagine that the article published in Touchstone is that far removed from Granger’s book, and so I have to wonder if he comes to the same conclusions. I’ve not yet read the book, but if his conclusions are the same (and there’s no discussion of concerns like those I raised) then I will have a hard time believing he’s given Latter-day Saint sources any kind of weight.
