This weekend at church Jane was giving out books to rebut The DaVinci Code. The book is titled: The DaVinci Code: A Quest for Answers. If I'm going to read the rebuttal, I guess I need to understand what it's rebutting. ;) I'll either read the book or see the movie - haven't decided yet, but I did buy a used copy off Amazon today.
At any rate, the movie can be a decent surrogate if need be. I did the same thing for Harry Potter. I didn't want to read the first book, but I wanted to understand the phenomenon it was, so I saw the first movie (which was so good I've seen the next two).
I wasn't planning on having anything to do with the DaVinci Code, but I guess it's been decided for me. Personally, I think it's crazy that I need to be involved, but it's even crazier that grown adults think the DaVinci Code has anything to do with truth. I don't remember much from my college church history classes, so perhaps this rebuttal book will help. What is it that makes otherwise rational adults believe anything that claims to discredit Christianity? Why do they feel it needs to be discredited? What are they afraid of if it's true?
If you've read the book or plan to see the movie and believe its premise, do yourself a favor get the whole story. None of us should be afraid to seek the truth. There are several rebuttal books. Read one. In fact, if you plug "davinci code" into Amazon, the rebuttals come up, not Mr. Brown's book. In order to get Mr. Brown's book to come up you have to put the article "the" first.
