Twilight Saga: New Moon

 

New Moon is part of the Twilight series of films and is wildly popular with teenage audiences.  Katie Todd, student at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Charlotte, believes using this film with teenagers can help them think about the issues of identity.  Discussions with teenagers need to challenge  this  film’s  focus  on  identity  being wrapped up  in others, especially the men we are dating and  involved with.  In addition, talking about the film can encourage  youth  to  connect  the  theological  understanding  of  identity  as children of God with their lives and then challenge the film accordingly.
