The controversy grows with every sale of the bestselling novel. Throughout the contemporary fictional storyline of The Da Vinci Code, author Dan Brown skillfully weaves “historical” assertions intended to shake the very foundations of Christianity: · Was Jesus merely human and not divine? · Did Jesus and Mary Magdalene marry and have children? · Is there a Holy Grail? If so, what is it and where can it be found? CRACKING DA VINCI’S CODE is the long-awaited answer to these and other questions. Authors James L. Garlow and Peter Jones present compelling evidence that Brown’s assertions are not only historically inaccurate, but may also contain a hidden agenda.

Dr. James Garlow is the pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church, a congregation with an average attendance of 3500 in San Diego, California. Among his degrees are a MDiv from Asbury Seminary, a Master's in Theology from Princeton Seminary, and a Ph.D. from Drew University. He is the author of How God Saved Civilization, A Christian's Response to Islam, and many other works.
Dr. Peter Jones holds a MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, a ThM from Harvard Divinity School, and a Ph.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary. He is a professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, California, and is the author of numerous books, including The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back.
This fascinating contribution to the DA VINCI CODE controversy, ably narrated with only occasional excesses, is one of many rebuttals to the assault on conservative Christianity that Dan Brown's novel represents. Like arguments on both sides of the issue, the writing is full of pejorative hyperbole and logical lapses. But it contributes to the discussion by laying out some important differences in the way Christ is regarded by traditional Christians as compared to the Gnostic Christians, whose gospels were suppressed after Christ's death. With only some moralizing, the program tries to answer the question of whether understanding Jesus in Gnostic terms is part of a neo-pagan, quasi-religious movement or a healthy broadening of our relationship with God.
