From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the Twilight Saga to HBOs True Blood series,MoreThe Vampire Myth from Dracula to the Twilight SagaVampires first entered the pop culture arena with Bram Stokers 1897 novel, Dracula. Today, vampires are everywhere.

From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the Twilight Saga to HBOs True Blood series, pop culture cant get enough of the vampire phenomenon.Bringing her literary expertise to this timely subject, Susannah Clements reveals the roots of the vampire myth and shows how it was originally immersed in Christian values and symbolism. Over time, however, vampires have been defanged as their spiritual significance has waned, and what was once the embodiment of evil has turned into a teen idol and the ultimate romantic hero.

Clements offers a close reading of selected vampire texts, explaining how this transformation occurred and discerning between the variety of vampire stories presented in movies, TV shows, and novels. Her probing engagement of the vampire metaphor helps readers make Christian sense of this popular obsession.This book is so entertaining that you might almost miss how good the theology is.

Give this book to anyone you know who loves vampire stories. They will not only thank you but they will also find spiritual depths they never knew existed.—Stephen H. Webb, professor of religion and philosophy, Wabash College
