Product Description

The identity of Mary Magdalene; her role among the followers of Jesus; the assembling of the New Testament; the validity of the so-called 'gnostic gospels': these and many other questions have been raised by Dan Brown's bestseller, and are still confusing readers of his book. This book addresses these questions and more in a methodical style, revealing the true nature of the worldview behind the novel and the agenda it contains. Bock, with a Ph. D. in New Testament studies, shines the light of Truth, and the reader can watch the claims of the novel shrivel. This is not just another in the pile of anti-Da Vinci Code books, as the author has a deep understanding of the elements that he covers, and readers can be confident that they are getting expert-level refutation of this attack on Christianity's truth claims.

Publisher's Description

Many who have read the New York Times bestseller The Da Vinci Code have questions that arise from seven codes-expressed or implied-in Dan Brown's book. In Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone's Asking, Darrell Bock, Ph.D., responds to the novelist's claims using central ancient texts and answers the following questions:

  • Who was Mary Magdalene?
  • Was Jesus Married?
  • Would Jesus Being Single be Un-Jewish?
  • Do the So-Called Secret Gnostic Gospels Help Us Understand Jesus?
  • What Is the Remaining Relevance of The Da Vinci Code?

Darrell Bock's research uncovers the origins of these codes by focusing on the 325 years immediately following the birth of Christ, for the claims of The Da Vinci Code rise or fall on the basis of things emerging from this period. Breaking the Da Vinci Code, now available in trade paper, distinguishes fictitious entertainment from historical elements of the Christian faith. For by seeing these differences, one can break the Da Vinci code.
