Da Vinci Code Questions

Davinci-DialogueThis site deals with the historicity of Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code, due to hit the cinema in May. Sony is apparently sponsoring the site as they prepare to release Ron Howard’s movie adaptation – and want to mitigate the Catholic and Evangelical backlash from this anti-Catholic, anti-Christian book and movie.

The book has sold 36 million copies and though it may be a good yarn, it is historical (and somewhat hysterical) nonsense. [HT: Hugh Hewitt]

UPDATE: Poor Rich Dan Brown has some people who’d like a piece of the action – people who claim he "stole" some of the material from their book, The Holy Blood, the Holy Grail.

One response to Da Vinci Code Questions

  1. I think it’s great that Sony is willing to face the controversy, and provide a platform for discussion – especially with a balanced panel of experts. What’s really surprising to me is that not very many Christians can actually tell you what’s wrong with the DaVinci Code. I just posted about the Bible illiteracy of many Christians over at the View From Her, if you’d be interested. You have a great blog here – love the topics.
