From the Back Cover:

Was Jesus really married to Mary Magdalene?
Did they actually have children who intermarried with the French royal family?
Has the church been hiding the truth for centuries?

In his best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown blurs the lines between history and fiction, leaving readers wondering, Could this really be true? And if it is true, what does it mean for us as Christians? By distorting the truth, Brown implies that Christianity is based on a lie.

In The Da Vinci Deception, respected Bible teacher Erwin W. Lutzer gives you the “facts” behind the fiction in his reader-friendly, accessible style. He exposes the myths behind these and other legends, uncovers the historical distortions presented in the novel, and equips you with the real story behind this story.

Whether or not you have read Brown’s novel, you will learn the historical basis of early Christianity and gain clear and authoritative answers to the confusion surrounding the life of Jesus and the Christian faith.

From the Inside Flap:

Could it be possible? Did Leonardo Da Vinci really disguise the most amazing secret of all within his world-famous paintings? Did the early church initiate and perpetuate one of the biggest cover-ups of all time in an effort to promote male dominance and superiority? And what about the Holy Grail? Could it be, as some believe, the actual remains of Mary Magdalene? And if all this is true, what does it mean for us as Christians?

If you’ve read the best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code, you may be asking yourself these questions. In The Da Vinci Deception, respected Bible teacher Erwin W. Lutzer gives you the answers in his reader-friendly, accessible style. He exposes the myths behind these and other legends, uncovers the historical distortions presented in the novel, and equips you with the real story behind this story.
