Recommended for: nobody

It is no secret that I am deeply charmed and swept off my feet by atheist who make the engine of my mind work and work; they make me feel alive. What Dan Brown does on the other hand is spreading around historical fallacies and lies. Even as fiction, his work at best is nothing but literary parasitism. It is now a fashionable trend in the world of literary market to see actual parasites who can't stand on their own intellectual merit but take advantage of the vast resonance associated with the name of Jesus and what he represents in order to secure profit at a very low effort. This is nothing but literary parasitism.

Regarding the book itself, I observe:

1. The writing style is torturous.

2. As far as history, it is terribly inaccurate. If you choose to read it, read Bart Ehrman's book on it to get your history info there set straighted. He was so misleading. He gave the impression that his research on history is accurate while it was full of horrible mistakes. But Americans generally like any type of book that has words such as "codes", "problems and secret hidden info about Jesus", etc. People cannot be happy except with the suspense and thriller. There is a lot of talk about the betrayal of Judas, and the people are not aware that it is happening again. Christ is being sold again, not to the leaders of the Sanhedrin for thirty pieces of silver but to editors and booksellers of millions of dollars. . .

Skylar Burris WHat is the title of the Eahrman book? I'm not generally a big fan of his books, but I think I listened to a "free sample" lecture from the teaching company on his response to the Da Vinci code (I think it was him), and it was well done, and so I would be interested to read that book.

That is the only book where he came to be liked by me because he exposed that stupid book of Dan Brown to be a flat hoax, a real lie.

Skylar Burris Thanks. I think I may have actually read that one. It's kind of sad when you can't remember if you've read a book or not...I'm sure if I start reading it again I'll realize whether I have or not.
