Something More About Mary

Why would a Christian care to respond to a piece of fiction like “The Da Vinci Code”?

We certainly have no problem with historical romances of Georgette Hever or Francine Rivers.

So, what’s the big deal with Dan Brown?

Apart from his controversial claims about Jesus’ supposed marriage to Mary Magdalene and conspiracy theories on the origin of Christian faith, Dan Brown actually made his millions by the claim that “all descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents and secret rituals in this novel are accurate”.

By blurring the lines between fact and fiction, many readers were misled into thinking his theories really have historical basis.

With the movie starring Tom Hanks due next summer, Christians could not afford to react with angry histrionics. We need to use this opportunity to engage our friends with the truth through informed, calm and winsome conversations.
