The Da Vinci Code, Special Illustrated Edition
Best for Travel


I would suggest the illustrated version because it make it easy to follow the intrepretations of the paintings and architecture. It also enhances the imagery in the novel.

The symbolism, characters and the plot make the novel so distinguished. More importantly, the subject matter will keep you involved and thinking.

This is the kind of book that can spark your interest to read and research things you never thought about before.

Breaking the Da Vinci Code : Answers to the Questions Everybody's Asking
sad


mr. bock doesn't do any good with his book. he lacks order, research and ways to get to the reader to explain his points of view. every chapters is left open leaving you without options, hints or even interest. as a christian i was expecting to find the answers the books says it will give. i was left only with more questions and what's worse, doubts. the book reminded me of preachers who speak and sound hollow. i took the da vinci code, as it is supposed to be, a novel. i have heard of all it's theories before, and thought interesting even though i don't think them true, but these book is so shallow and meaningless that it does wrong for the faith it's supposed to be defending.

De-Coding Da Vinci: The Facts Behind the Fiction of The Da Vinci Code
Excellent...


***** To say Dan Brown stirred up a hornet's nest when he wrote "The Da Vinci Code" would be an understatement. More than one Christian has found themselves being cornered by someone asking some variant of "so, what's this about Jesus and Mary?" and it takes a little more than faith to answer them. One needs to be able to refute the historical fallacies and fictions purported as fact in the best seller. To do this, you can either spend a few hours of research on the various aspects or buy this book. Don't be fooled by its brevity. No words are wasted in making a big impact. The facts are well researched and linked to historical texts for further exploration; and each chapter concludes with discussion questions, making it ideal for group study. Much like Strobel's "Case" series, Amy Welborn presents a clear picture in an entertaining and informative fashion. *****Reviewed by Amanda Killgore.

Stimulating and Fun


I got a hold of this book completely by chance. I did not know that it was a best seller or that is was hugely popular; as a result my opinion was not tainted with anticipation or reviews. I must admit that the book is very well written. The action progresses very nicely with very well placed lyrical interludes and history lessons. Being a history buff myself I was pleased to see certain obscure yet important facts being presented and discussed. Also, it was gratifying to see the explanation of our modern concept of the Devil being covered. The characters sometimes are slightly to clich?, however overall are well developed and portrayed. The only let down for me was the end. By then, if you are skilled in reading between the lines and catching the innuendo, there is no surprise for a number of mysteries become obvious. Nevertheless, it does not spoil the overall quality of the book. This book is interesting, thoughtful, well planned and executed. Anyone who likes a brain teaser with a lesson will enjoy this.

Cracking Da Vinci's Code: You've Read the Fiction, Now Read the Facts
Instructive, Balanced, Honest, & Revealing


Unlike some of the other reviewers, I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to those who might be reading Brown's book as if it were fact (when it is actually just faction [fiction intermixed with the facts of settings, some truths, but lots of fabrications, etc]).

Garlow and Jones (the former was educated at Asbury Theol. Sem., Princeton Theol. Sem., Drew Univesity; the latter educated at University of Wales, Harvard Divinity School, and Princeton Theol. Seminary) offer the facts behind what Brown has created fiction out of...

The sad part is, that many are being swayed from what is truth (not even talking about theological truth here but truth as revealed and known in history and what is truly known [and not mass conjecture+fiction])....

I hope everyone who wants a balanced writing rebuttal of the novel will get a used copy for themselves...to at least have a counter-understanding to Brown's biased anti-Christian, worldview.

The Da Vinci Code
Interesting typo within


This is, hands-down, the best book I have read in a long while. I was quickly drawn in, and the ever-unfolding story held my attention wll the way through. I was torn between not wanting to put the book down and not wanting it to end. Contrary to another reviewer, I found the short chapters an effective means of keeping the pace of the novel brisk and exciting. This wasn't the first time I had heard some of the theories that the book offers, but it is the first time that I have felt compelled to research them for myself. Enjoy!

The Da Vinci Code
Eye-opening


i almost didn't buy this book because the back cover made the book sound like it was going to be something i could leave on an airplane, but i got hooked when the blurb mentioned that the hero was a symbologist. i like symbols. i like art. i bought the book.
that night, when my work was finished, i pulled it out to read
the first page and i read 125 pages that night.the front of the book is better than the back of the book. the back is good, but the first part is outrageous. at the back of the book the relationships turn kind of gooey and you can sort of intuit who will be going home with who that night. the hero is too handsome and the woman is too beautiful to be believable. he didn't get the people really right. they don't feel authentic. the rest of the book is a lot of fun, though, and the information about secret societies and rituals is not only fascinating but apparently factual.when i finished the book, i bought the other books brown has
written and none of them are as good as this book.

Light Entertainment


The premise of this book, a search for the mythical "Holy Grail" and the subsidiary premises - 1) that the Grail is not a "thing" but a person and/or relationship and 2) that a secret society has kept secret the location of this person and information for several centuries, is a little much to believe.Dan Brown has a very good grasp of history in regard to the Grail, the Knights Templar, Freemasonry and the semi-legendary mythos surrounding these entities, but its clear that he hasn't really delved into the theological inconsistencies of adopting the theories espoused in his book. To make the case that Mary Magdalene was the "Holy Grail", that she rivaled Peter for the leadership of Christianity after Jesus' death, that she and Jesus had an intimate relationship that yielded children whose descendants are alive today, calls into the question the entire basis for Jesus' mission on Earth. I can't think of a single main-line Protestant denomination that would accept such an idea - obviously the Roman Catholic church would reject it outright. Such a scenario creates too many inconsistencies, in fact, to make possible the belief in Jesus as divine. So what this book really ends up promoting, as an (un)intentional consequence, is unbelief. If you're like me, you tend to think that ideas with little merit die-out rather quickly while those that bear strong elements of truth and believability survive. The ideas espoused in this book have been around for a while, but never accepted by anything but a lunatic fringe of conspiracists. Meanwhile, the Roman Catholic church continues to add members to its ranks worldwide 2000 years after the death of Christ. You make the choice.

The Da Vinci Code
AN AWESOME RIDE!


THE DA VINCE CODE is a smooth book to read. The chapters are extremely short, which makes it convenient to find stopping points - not that you'll want to stop (this book is so engulfing). The flow of the story is really easy to follow, even though it often splits up, switching from scene to scene. Brown is masterful at telling the story from one viewpoint, and then switching and telling it from the eyes of a different character. I cannot give this book enough praise. Not only is it chocked full of information guaranteed to spark the imagination of the conspiracy theorist in anyone, but it is so complex, with intense and unexpected twists and turns all the way until the end. You will be guessing and trying to crack The Da Vinci Code the whole time. What's best, is that the person behind it all, is the one person I would have never even suspected, not even for a moment - and yet it makes perfect sense. I am blown away.
