Many who have read the New York Times bestseller The Da Vinci Code have questions that arise from seven codes-expressed or implied-in Dan Brown's book. In Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone's Asking, Darrell Bock, Ph.D., responds to the novelist's claims using central ancient texts and answers the following questions:
Darrell Bock's research uncovers the origins of these codes by focusing on the 325 years immediately following the birth of Christ, for the claims of The Da Vinci Code rise or fall on the basis of things emerging from this period. Breaking the Da Vinci Code, now available in trade paper, distinguishes fictitious entertainment from historical elements of the Christian faith. For by seeing these differences, one can break the Da Vinci code.

Absorbing and provocative, this account of the hotly debated questions of history and religion swirling around bestselling book THE DA VINCI CODE will be acclaimed or rejected depending on which side of the religious fence the listener stands. The text has impressive historical citations and concludes with well-presented arguments that ultimately listeners will accept or reject, based on their own particular point of view. The glossary of names and terms mentioned in the hard cover edition is omitted from the audio's packaging. (A printed version in the liner would be greatly helpful.) For example, there is no reference to a concise and informative introduction by Dr. Frances J. Maloney, Catholic University of America, an important ecumenical note.
