Everybody seems to have read it or is in the process of reading it. – “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown. I admit that I never considered reading the novel. Having heard of a few of its obviously fictional assertions and that it attacked Christian beliefs, I couldn’t be bothered with it and discouraged acquaintances from reading it. I know, now, I made a mistake. As you may know, the book suddenly became a best seller. To my surprise, many, many people, even Christians believed many of the so-called facts written by Dan Brown.
Now, I say to Christians, “Read the Da Vinci Code!” You have to read it to be able to discuss it with your friends. But, read it along with this book. The Da Vinci Code Breaker by James L. Garlow.
This is the Da Vinci Code dictionary. It contains over 500 facts and terms used in the Dan Brown book, with their correct meanings and interpretation. I found The Code Breaker very enlightening and easy to use since it is organized in alphabetical order. Although I knew that “The Da Vinci Code” was a work of fiction with some historical errors in it, I didn’t realize how many errors it contained until I started reading through The Da Vinci Code Breaker.
Don’t be gullible and don’t be silent! The Bible tells us to always be prepared to give an answer when asked about our faith. (1 Peter 3:15) I know that I am secure in my salvation. I know the Truth and trust in Jesus Christ. I wonder what my Savior will say to me when I meet Him, if because of my ignorance, I let my friends and loved ones believe the lies. Especially when it is so easy to prepare myself with the facts.
