Item description for 101 Questions and Answers on the Da Vinci Code and the Catholic Tradition by Nancy De Flon & John Vidmar...
Overview Church historians de Flon and Vidmar use a reader-friendly question and answer format to separate fact from fiction and to go beyond the endless refutations of Dan Brown's assertions in his mega bestseller "The Da Vinci Code" to focus on positive and, in some cases surprising, aspects of Church history.
Publishers Description Whatever one's opinion of it as a detective thriller, Dan Brown's popular novel The Da Vinci Code makes assertions that are in stark opposition to Catholic teaching and it seriously misrepresents Church history and doctrine. In 101 Questions And Answers On The Da Vinci Code And The Catholic Tradition, church historians Nancy de Flon and John Vidmar use a reader-friendly question and answer format to separate fact from fiction and to go beyond the endless refutations of Dan Brown's assertions to focus on positive and, in some cases surprising, aspects of Church history. De Flon and Vidmar not only show where Brown went wrong, but they also unlock the doors to the treasure rooms of the Catholic tradition and they display for the reader the wealth of people, customs, and events that comprise Catholic identity. Far more than a mere Da Vinci Code "debunker," this book serves as celebration of Catholic culture. It's the ideal guide for readers who want to learn not only what's wrong in The Da Vinci Code but also what's right about the Catholic tradition. And with the upcoming release of the film, the timing could not be better.
