DaVinci Code

I should preface this post by saying that I've neither read the book nor seen the movie "The DaVinci Code" but I have read a bit about the historical claims author Dan Brown makes in the preface of the book. He also has repeated many of these claims in TV interviews throughout the last year. In a nutshell what Brown reports as historical facts in the preface and through the characters in his novel are anything but. Normally I wouldn't any problem with that sort of thing in a novel but in this case Brown skirts the line and gives a false reading of history to many ho have not looked into the issues before. The result is that people end up with a warped view of history that everyone who is interested in truth should be concerned about.

This morning I heard a succint message that dealt with many of these claims in a very clear way. Whether you're a Christian or not I think the information content here is pretty high and would recommend it. You can download the mp3 here.
