Exploring the Da Vinci Code takes you on a fascinating journey to London, Paris, and California with Lee Strobel and Garry Poole as they investigate the claims made by Dan Brown in his novel, The Da Vinci Code. It provides quick, straightforward answers to the most troubling aspects of the popular novel and major motion picture, which is scheduled to release in theatres May 19, 2006. This outreach book is designed so readers can give multiple copies to friends, family, coworkers---anyone who may be struggling with the misconceptions fostered by The Da Vinci Code. Exploring the Da Vinci Code is not to be confused with Zondervan's DVD Group discussion resource, Discussing the Da Vinci Code. The latter links a DVD to a group discussion guide and equips group members to personally combat the misunderstandings that many readers of The Da Vinci Code have.
