SHIPPENSBURG, Pa., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The book 'Where's My Edward?' is a heartfelt peer into the world of romance and love behind the wildly popular Twilight series by a best-selling Christian author who has written two successful books on dating and relationships.
"Using the Twilight series as our reference point and the Bible as our standard of truth, each chapter of this book is designed to offer solid advice and sound answers to your most pressing love-related uncertainties and questions. In the process of separating fact from fiction, we will discover numerous truths about men and women, relationships, and lasting love commitments, all for the purpose of pointing you in the direction of your own Twilight-kind of romance," writes author Laura B. Gallier.
With over 85 million Twilight books sold, the fact that people, particularly teenage and young women, are seeking romance and love is clear. But how easy is it for Christians to walk that fine line between love and lust, danger and divine, real-life and real-fantasy? Where's My Edward? expertly draws a clearly defined line in a friendly yet profound way for readers who are afraid of tripping along the way.
Is there an "Edward" for every woman? Is "Edward" only a fantasy in a book? Would "Edward" even want to love a modern-day woman? Where's My Edward? tackles these questions with blunt honesty, powerful personal experiences, biblical insight, and even some statistics.
"I believe in lasting love. I also believe we must learn how to cultivate it. As we seek to experience our own Twilight-kind of romance, we need a balance of both—Bella's willingness to become vulnerable for the sake of love and Renee's dependence on principles that help us overcome relationship traps and pitfalls. Speaking of traps, we need to do some soul searching and determine if our own insecurities, self doubt, and feelings of unworthiness are holding us back from making a love connection in the first place," writes the author who then goes on to point out practical ways of taking a personal inventory.
Written for all—women, men, young, mature, married, single—who are looking for a realistic relationship, the book discusses specific attitudes, emotions, and spiritual hindrances that may be standing in the way to that happily ever after ending. Each chapter closes with reflections designed to prompt thoughtful responses that will ultimately shape readers' perspectives about their current and future relationships.
Focus on the Family's Senior Associate Editor Michael Ridgeway describes Laura Gallier as "an effective Christian communicator" who "tackles the tough and often controversial issue of abstinence education with wit and insight." She is also the author of Choosing to Wait and Why Wait?
