Forbidden Faith: The Secret History of Gnosticism to The Da Vinci Code

The Gospel According to Dan Brown
CBD Price: $14.36

Who were the Gnostics and where did they come from? Why do their ideas keep reappearing throughout history? Forbidden Faith is the first comprehensive popular history of Gnosticism, a secretive tradition that has survived for centuries in many forms and under many names. Here Richard Smoley provides the enduring story and continuing legacy of those errant faithful who have had direct experiences of the divine that can't be explained by the official beliefs of the Church.

Mary of Magdala: What the Da Vinci Code Misses

Mary of Magdala: What the Da Vinci Code Misses
CBD Price: $13.46

The publication of Dan Brown's controversial and bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code, brought to life a spirited debate concerning Mary of Magdalene's true role in the life of Jesus. Who was the real Mary of Magdala? A devoted disciple of Christ or perhaps even a prostitute? Mary of Magdala, now revised with a new introduction, is a fascinating examination of the actual written accounts referring to Mary. Mary Thompson examines the issues raised in The Da Vinci Code exploring the many fallacies in the novel while presenting clear and compelling evidence that Mary of Magdala indeed played an important role in the early church as disciple, leader, and apostle.
