    1 starNo starNo starNo starNo star    For a good argument... look elsewhere.

    This book aims to refute any and all assertions about Christianity in 'the Da vinci Code' that do not tie in with the authors' own beliefs and assertions. They seemed to have missed the point that this is a work of fiction cleverly tying in well researched facts, such as the settings, and extrapolation of the theories and opinions of other authors.
    Whether or not Dan Brown believes the theories on which the novel hangs its tale does not alter the fact that 'the Da Vinci Code' is a work of fiction for the entertainment of the reader. The authors of '...fact or fiction' do themselves and Christians no service whatsoever by attacking this work with their own ubsubstansiated assertions. If you want a serious discussion of 'the Da Vinci Code', save your money and look elsewhere.

    Readers who have read the Da Vinci Code and seek further clarification of what is accurate -The Facts - and what is embelishment - Da Vinci Code is, after all, categorised as a Novel - will be disappointed to find that this book is written from a very one-sided standpoint.

    The opening paragraphs centre around how Christianity is regarded as 'fair game' by those who seek to criticise the religion. The authors point out that criticism of Buddhism, Islam and other religions is not allowed, but those who seek to criticise Christianity are allowed to do so and indeed encouraged to do so. Unfortunately, this defence of Christianity is the main theme of the book that rubbishes all of the main assertions of The Code whilst failing to provide any real evidence for so doing. Whilst I was looking for a balanced wieghing up of the novel and facts, all that I had was a defence against the traditional view of Christianity without any depth or deference to The Code's assertions.

    Millions have become enthralled by the Brown's clever mix of facts and theories. This book is an antithesis of Brown's view of these theories, and it is a stout antithesis. But that is all that it is. In the event it comes across as a tirade against conspiracies, theories and viewpoints of those who do not support the official version of Christianity. Brown is to be congratulated on stimulating discussion of the fundamental premises of Christianity. Supporters of the religion would do well to disect these theories in a logical and quiet manner which is what I expected this book to do. In the event I was disappointed.
