. Even people who haven't already read the novel that it trounces would
profit from reading De-Coding Da Vinci.
De-Coding Da Vinci is a handy, thorough, yet easy-to-read resource that can
help readers understand the difference between fact and fiction in the
best-selling novel by Dan Brown.
De-Coding Da Vinci: The Facts behind the Fiction of The Da Vinci Code
addresses the misrepresentation of history, religion and art in The Da Vinci Code.
Did Leonardo actually build these codes into his paintings? Was the Priory of
Sion a real organization? Is the Holy Grail really, as he says, Mary Magdalene's
womb and now her bones, and not the Last Supper cup? Is Opus Dei really what
The Da Vinci Code says it is? What was Constantine's true role in early
Christianity? Was Jesus human or divine or both? Was He married to Mary Magdalene?
Do secret writings not in the Bible really contain truths about Jesus, Mary
Magdalene and the sacred feminine?
Complete with discussion questions and suggestions for further reading in
every chapter, this is the perfect book to accurately answer questions as well as
inspire further conversation. It can be used either as a personal resource to
expand one's knowledge of the issues raised by The Da Vinci Code or to lead a
discussion for a book club, a church group or to discuss with friends who've
read the book and have questions that need to be answered.
