Reviews - What do customers think about The Da Vinci Myth Versus the Gospel Truth?
Another very good and wise book from Coral Ridge Ministries... Jul 11, 2006
Dr. D. James Kennedy obviously earned all those letters appended behind his name, and this book is every bit as good as Rich Abanas book debunking the DaVince Hoax, but Kennedy is wrong when he calls Establish- mentarians 'Revisionists'. Somebody needs to get him some David Irving, Art Butz, Harry Elmer Barnes books, badly! Also his views of Adolf Shickegrubr are not quite on point, though Adolf was a nut! All D. James Kennedy's books are good-to-very good, even if he sometimes uses the dopey 'judeo-christ- ian montrocity of an oxymoron!
Seek the Truth Jun 26, 2006
This is a great book. It is breif and easy to read even if you have very little knowledge of history or theology. Unlike the novel it does not insult your intelligence claiming fiction as fact and it gives you the sources to back it up. Most importantly this book encourages you the reader to think for yourself and do your own invistigation. I also reccomend similar books by Lee Strobel & Josh McDowell. These are two writers that independently & seperately began their studies to disprove the bible and Christianity. But vowed to stick to the facts & report the truth. Remember a great novel early in the nineties that made a wonderful movie & so many of us wanted to believe it as true? Bridges of Madison County. fiction..... just entertainment. For thousands of years people have made their claims against Christ and I expect it will continue. Christians should be flattered that so many exert so much energy and bring so much attention to what we experience as grace & mercy. God allows such books to bring him Glory! Because of this novel I have grown in my relationship with my risen Lord and so will many more. Just as the movie previews suggest SEEK the TRUTH
Others are better May 29, 2006
The Da Vinci Code is "a broadside attack on the basic foundations of the Christian religion and Western civilation..." (10) So say D. James Kenney and Jerry Newcombe. In their book, The Da Vinci Myth versus the Gospel Truth, they seek to expose the problems with the novel and provide a positive case for Christianity.
The book consists of six chapters. The authors being with an explanation of the novel and an analysis of the claims it makes. In the chapter three, they seek to explain why The Da Vinci Code has been so popular. Next they offer arguments for why people should accept the Bible as God's inspired word and historical evidences for the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ. They close with an explanation of the Gospel message.
What's unique about this book are the last three chapters. Though the arguments can be found in many apologetics books, the arguments are nevertheless quality reasons for believing in the divine inspiration of the Bible and the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ. The rest of the book is not as noteworthy. Several points of sarcasm detract from the book's quality, such as in discussing the votes at the Council of Nicea being 316 to 2," Two! Now that is really a very close vote: only two voted against the Nicene Council. Gee! We may have to have a revote on that." (22) There were also a few editorial errors.
With several great responses to The Da Vinci Code already available, The Da Vinci Myth versus the Gospel Truth is a book to pass by. It lacks a thorough critique of the pagan worldview issues involved with the novel and even its good points can be found in better apologetics resources.
