The Da Vinci Deception" and Da Vinci Outreach are there to educate readers on the quite deliberate falsehoods - as well as ignorant blunders - that fill the story. We are also including a resource aimed at educating high school students and helping them to tune their "bunk detectors" to Brown's wavelength. Shea: Undoubtedly, the promoters of the movie will attempt to characterize Catholic complaints about "The Da Vinci Code's" assassination of the facts as identical to radical Islamist threats to free speech. The problem with this claim, of course, is that the Church does not condone burning down buildings or threatening people with death, even when they lie about Christ.

The Da Vinci Deception Experience is a media curriculum kit that consists of three items: the book The Da Vinci Deception by Erwin Lutzer, a leader's guide, and a DVD-ROM. The Da Vinci Deception Experience will be useful for those church or small group leaders who want to educate their people will the very basics of responding to Dan Brown's novel. Though the leader's material isn't as good, I recommend Lee Strobel's curriculum (Discussing the Da Vinci Code) as a richer educational experience.

Why has The Da Vinci Code sold tens of millions of copies worldwide? Is the book’s phenomenal success due to its compelling characters, thrilling plot points, or impeccable research? No. The Da Vinci Code has become an international hit because of its lurid prose and its sensationalistic—even blasphemous—claims regarding the “true” history of Christianity. In the end, it is nothing more than a thinly veiled assault on the person of Jesus Christ and His Church. Millions of people, who are not experts in history, art, theology, or archeology, are being led astray by The Da Vinci Code’s fraudulent assertions and invented history. On May 19th, The DaVinci Code will be released as a major motion picture. Film critics have predicted it will be one of the year’s biggest blockbusters. The Da Vinci Deception is a powerful antidote to the spiritual poison found in The DaVinci Code.

Mr.jeka
Yes it did meet my expectations. It exposed all of the misstatement of facts in the DaVinci Code. The DaVinci Code masquerades as if everything contained in it is based on truth, which it is not and this book cites the true facts.

I own and have read several similar books by both Catholics and Protestants.

This is one of the best. It uses a Q and A format to present Brown's errors and then uses legitimate scholarly sources to refute them.

The book is a very easy read but provides enough "meat" so that you are not bored.

The authors do not talk down to you and they don't overwhelm you with information.

They also do a great job of providing you with their sources so that you can verify what they have told you. This is something that is severly lacking in Brown's book, His charectors are are always referring to experts that are unnamed.

The reason I gave this 5 stars was that 5 was the most I could give.

The Da Vinci Deception by Mark Shea, Dr. Edward Sri, and others is a concise guide, from a Roman Catholic point of view, of the errors in Dan Brown's popular and notorious novel, The DaVinci Code. It is written in an FAQ format. Not much depth here and nothing new that cannot be found in the myriad of other tomes written in response to author Brown's mediocre and poorly researched novel. If this book does have one advantage it is that in answering frequently asked questions about assertions made in The DaVinic Code it does get quickly to the point. If you want a book that will get you up to speed in answering friends and acquaintances that take the notions in Brown's novel seriously, The Da Vinci Deception by Mark Shea, Dr. Edward Sri, et al, this is the book for you.

Presented by the indignant but scholarly editors of the Catholic Exchange" this excellent 130-page treatise exposes in forthright terminology the shoddy "research" and creative liberties taken by author, Dan Brown (THE DA VINCI CODE). Despite his flagrant anti Christian bias readers can well imagine the controversial author weeping all the way to the bank--thanks to phenomenal book sales and movie rights/attendance. He deserves kudos for stimulating a mass resurgence of interest in the birth of Christianity, by means media manipulation-fiendishly reshuffled and disguised as the Truth, for the edification and moral confusion of less scholarly believers.

In a readable, easy-to-digest format of 100 questions, presumably posed by bewildered and frustrated Christians, this slender volume offers the historical truth and Biblical basis regarding the founder (Jesus Christ) and the foundation (the Bible) of the Christian faith. Revealed for the flamboyant but shabby scholar he was, Brown emerges as a literary villain in his own right; he attempts--and nearly succeeds--to smear the Church--with particular venom directed toward the Vatican. Using techniques to confuse and brainwash interested readers Brown manages to vilify a noble institution, thereby causing lukewarm Christians to question their own faith. Opus Dei? Try, Opus Satanica! Despite its pious but smugly anti- Protestant bias this book (reminiscent of a mini Catechism) ranks as a crucial read for all those who have swallowed the distorted version of Brown's admittedly clever novel and/or have enjoyed the chilling but twisted movie. The Truth is not just "out there." It is right here!

This is not "is not, is too" writing, as one reviewer has allueded.

Here's a snippit to show this:

QUESTION: But the Da Vinci Code says the bible evolved though countless additions and revisions. After all, there weren't printing presses or copy machines in the ancient world. How do we know that the New Testament we have today is an accurate representation of the original NT?

ANSWER: Let's compare the NT manuscript traditions to the second best attested work of antiquity: The Iliad, the ancient Greek epic by Homer. Homer wrote The Iliad around 800 BC, but we have no original manuscript of the work. Or modern day editions of this classical work are based on manuscripts that date from long after Homer's lifetime. Of the approzimately 650 extant manuscripts of The Iliad, the oldest dates from around AD 200 to 300 - about 1000 years after Homer's lifetime! Nevertheless, most scholars recognize that these very late copies of The Iliad are reliable representations of Homer's original work, even through they date from more than a millenium after Homer himself.

The New Testament has a much stonger manuscript tradition than The Iliad. First, there are many more ancient manuscripts of the New Testament: we have well over 5000 manuscript copies of the New Testament in whole or in part. Second, these manuscripts are much closer in date to the originals. The New Testament was written within the first century AD, and we have copies of some of those New Testament writings within just a few decades after they were composed.

We have fragments and major portions of individual New Testament books dating from the second and thrid centuries, AD, and we ahve bond copies of the entire NT from the 4th and 5th centuries. So there are only 200 to 300 years between the copies and their original manuscripts. But with the very reliable Iliad, there's a 1000 year gap between Homer and the earliest extant copies of the work. Therefore the NT has a much stonger manuscript history than any other work of the ancient world.

QUESTION: Okay. But how do we know these NT manuscripts faithfully represnent the original texts?

ANSWER: Because when you place those 5000 or so existing NT manuscripts side by side, they match up almost perfectly. It's importaint to note that these manuscripts were copied by many different people, from various parts of the world, at different times. Yet scholars have shown how these 5000 copies are 99.5% a match with each other on all major points. There may be some minor variations in terms of spelling or word order or vocabulary, but nothing that changes the sense of a particular verse or passage - nothing affecting matters of doctrine or morals.

This remarkably low rate of variation between the thousands of NT manuscripts should not surprise us. Remember the early Chritains who passed on the Scriptures were copying the sacred texts they used fo rteachign, praying and worship. Indeed, they believed they were copying the very Word of God Himself. These manuscripts were copied with great care and reverence. In sum, the NT is the most relyable text we have from antiquity...

If the New Testament is not trustworthy, then no writings from the ancient world can be considered relyable - not Cicero, not Homer, not Plato, not Caesar. If we can't trust the NT manuscripts, then all university history and classics departments across the country should be shut down because they have no relyable documents from which to teach!
