Recommended to Ruth by: Viewing the film for 1st time
"A thousand times over, the death knell of the Bible has been sounded, the funeral procession formed, the inscription cut on the tombstone, and the committal read. But somehow the corpse never stays put.

No other book has been so chopped, sliced, sifted, scrutinized, and vilified. What book on philosophy or religion or psychology or belles lettres of classical or modern times has been subject to such a mass attack as the Bible? with such venom and skepticism? with such thoroughness and erudition?

A conservative biblically based renunciation of The DaVinci Code.
Lutzer does an excellent job of answering all the questions raised by the novel (and movie) by Dan Brown entitled "The Da Vinci Code" such as: Was Jesus married? Did He have children? Has "The Church" been hiding this, or other startling information, for centuries?? You will find the truth here. Highly recommended.

First book of Lutzer that I was able to read all because reading Dan Brown's novel made me question his basis for including historically inaccurate elements in his Da Vinci Code's book.
Lutzer was able to present credible answers using factual historical basis.

the art historical content about papers, fibers, inks and Leonardo's brushstroke, drawing capabilities were well researched and valid. The rest was no great deal. If you take all the art historical content and make a document with it, then it's worth it.

The book got a little preachy at times, especially towards the end, but it's a good book about the history of Christianity as well as a well-written and well-researched refutation of The Da Vinci Code.

Very good book, but I overdosed on all the anti-Da Vinci Code books when the novel was big and am a bit sick of the whole discussion.

Love it! But I love a good conspiracy theory. I also enjoyed all the historical background.
