Item description for The Da Vinci Code on Trial: Filtering Fact from Fiction by Stephen Clark...
Overview In this book the author sifts the evidence for the claims found in Dan Brown's bestseller, The Da Vinci Code, that Jesus married Mary Magdalene, that the early church covered up the real message of Jesus, and that the Bible's account of Jesus is false. After giving a bird's-eye view of the novel and explaining why so many find Dan Brown's "case' to be convincing, Stephen Clark shows why the truth about Jesus is the most important thing we can ever consider. Having set out the Bible's account of Jesus and its relevance to our lives, he then goes on to demonstrate that The Da Vinci Code contains basic inaccuracies and errors and points out why the evidence can in no way support Dan Brown's "case'. In a final chapter he considers the evidence for believing that the New Testament is historically trustworthy and reliable and that Jesus did in fact rise from the dead. In doing so he presents a compelling case for believing what the Bible says about Jesus. By the end of the book it becomes clear that what matters is not only what we make of Jesus, but what the real Jesus makes of us. This is an easy-to-read book, which does not avoid difficult questions. "Technical' matters are discussed in a number of appendices. This ensures that while the book reads easily, those who wish to dig deeper will find the answers to their question
