Out of stock

By addressing the historical inaccuracies of the Da Vinci Code novel, this book attempts to bring the discussion surrounding it back to a biblical basis. There are no revelations here about the artwork or supposed secret societies, but rather frank discussions about the historicity of the Gospels, Jesus, and some of the various theories surrounding that historicity. Ehrman, himself an atheist and fan of the novel, leans heavily on his own recent writings about early Christianity to show both the inconsistencies of the book and what he perceives as problems with mainline historical Christianity.
