Item description for The Da Vinci Deception: 100 Questions about the Facts and Fiction of the Da Vinci Code by Mark Shea, Edward Sri & Catholic Exchange...

Overview
Why has The DaVinci 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 DaVinci 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 DaVinci Code's fraudulent assertions and invented history.

Publishers Description
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. This easy-to-read, question-and-answer book tackles the key errors in this devastating cultural phenomenon.

Did A Good Job of Providing Facts; A Little Over the Top?  Dec 25, 2006
I am not religious (maybe philosophical? ;-) but I thought this book did a good job of showing that Dan Brown's DaVinci Code (DVC) was pretty poorly researched. I am left with the impression that Mr. Brown wrote a pretty good piece of fiction, with little thought-out research, for his fictional work. And that Brown was probably surprised at how the DVC took off in the public's imagination, and he and his publisher had to backtrack and try to concoct that it had "facts."

My only critique was that some of the criticisms in this book were a bit ad-hom and over-the-top, and a few show the politicization (i.e. "Jesus wouldn't argue about the definition of "is" is" --- an obvious jab to Clinton/liberals more appropriate for the Rush Limbaugh Show. I mean, would Jesus gladly have us leap into wars for that matter)? So although overall it was a pretty good case to refute Dan Brown's "facts", I was left feeling that the authors do protest too much...
 
OK Catholic Study Guide--Nothing New Here  Jun 2, 2006
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.

 
The Da Vinci Defamation  May 16, 2006
For anyone who believes that the Davinci code is based on "facts", has not read page 1 of the REAL truth about Christ, namely, the Bible. All you need to do is ask them! There is also a DVD called the DAVINCI DELUSION by Dr. David Kennedy of the Cora Ridge Ministries. This too, will inform many of you who are in doubt of Christ's divinity. I know there will be many people who were on the fence regarding their faith, and a movie like the DAVINCI CODE will certainly push them over to the WRONG side! It is the main reason why people should seek the TRUTH AND BUY THIS BOOK, THE DAVINCI DECEPTION! Or just read the bible for the rest of the story. IT sad that a stupid "novel", now movie, full of fiction and lies, will fool so many ignorant, lazy people & have them basically rebuking Christ and all of his teachings. It just goes to show you that we, in this country especially, are truly in trouble and should seek help from God for guidance & forgiveness. But somehow I don't think they will believe in God anymore..
 
Intelligent Catholic Facts.  May 12, 2006
After reading the Da Vinci Code novel by Dan Brown, I had concerns and started researching the supposed facts and historical basis for the book. I discussed the novel with some individuals and found that people believed that the fiction of the book is actual historical reality. Some people actually admitted that it impacted their Faith. During my research, I found the Da Vinci Deception. I found an intelligent Catholic book that contained all the information I was searching for. Christians need to have their knowledge of history and Faith strengthened and this book will show the truth about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, the Gospels and many of the other questions that may be raised by the current attacks against Christ's Church.
 
Well written   May 2, 2006
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.
