Book Review: The Da Vinci CodeBreaker

The Da Vinci Code, book and movie, has spawned a flood of literature both in support and critiquing the ideas that it presents. After a while, the books all seem to be saying the same thing -- there is a lot of money being made by someone out there! Given that, it would be nice to have one book that just gets to the point and gives the facts. James Garlow's book The Da Vinci CodeBreaker does just that. Written from a Christian perspective, Garlow has provided an dictionary of more than 500 facts and terms related to the ideas of The Da Vinci Code and associated theories. For example, Was Jesus married and the father of a daughter? Was Mary Magdalene Jesus' choice to lead the church until some men took it away from her? Did Christianity really borrow everything from paganism? Did the church really kill 5 million females? Do the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper by Da Vinci contain secret clues? Garlow is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller, Cracking Da Vinci's Code. He has obviously seen the need for a comprehensive dictionary which is easily consulted. It's a well-illustrated paperback you can carry with you as you are reading the Da Vinci Code or watching the movie. This is a must-read, must-have book if you are interested in the facts.
