A Basis With No Depth

When THE DA VINCI CODE became such a massive bestseller and people started believing the fanciful claims of the novel as fact (largely because of a disclaimer that Brown uses at the beginning of the book to suggest that everything besides the characters in the book is factual), there was a huge rush of books written and published to illustrate the errors and fallacies of THE DA VINCI CODE. CRACKING DA VINCI'S CODE is one such book. The book doesn't deal with all of the historical inaccuracies of Brown's novel and doesn't even touch upon all the fallacies and misrepresentations of art in the book. Instead, the book focuses on many of the fallacies, inaccuracies, and lies that the book presents as fact about Christianity. The book does a decent job at presenting its case. However, it isn't documented in much detail. Also, the authors are both Christians, so their opinions reflect a Christian worldview. However, the book is very easy to read and is written in a way that the non-scholarly can enjoy. It presents some basic facts about the history of Christianity that many might not be aware. Overall, this is a book that the average layperson or someone who has just read THE DA VINCI CODE, but is confused by the message might enjoy reading.
