Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code is a hugely successful novel currently being translated into forty different languages and earning Brown many millions of dollars. It is a book that captivates its readers' attention and leads them on a thrilling story of history, murder, intrigue and religion.
Many have found that the way the story hangs together speaks to them in a new way and has changed how they think about Christianity. Television programmes have been aired with people speaking passionately for, and against, the central themes of the book.
Prior to his appointment as the Director of the John Owen Centre at London Theological Seminary, Garry Williams taught Church History and Doctrine at Oak Hill Theological College in London, England. Here he answers seven of the key claims raised by Dan Brown's book and points you towards a story even more intriguing - and more firmly based on fact.

"Given all the current hype and hoo-hah about Dan Brown's spectacularly successful novel, The Da Vinci Code, it's a pleasure to be able to recommend this little book ... In just over sixty pages, Garry guides the reader through the major historical and theological implications of Brown's work, and offers a thoughtful response from a historic Christian perspective. Dealing with everything from the Nicene Creed to the conventions of Renaissance art, Dr Williams guides the reader through the many problems in Brown's book; but, more that that, he points the reader to the Gospels and to the real Christ. Concise, well-written and chock full of insight, this is an ideal book for reading and for giving away."-- Carl R. Trueman, professor of historical theology and church history, November 2005.
