In his staggeringly popular work of fiction, Dan Brown states up front that the historical information in the The Da Vinci Code is all factually accurate. But is this claim true? As historian Bart D. Ehrman shows in this informative and witty book, The Da Vinci Code is filled with numerous historical mistakes. Did the ancient church engage in a cover-up to make the man Jesus into a divine figure? Did Emperor Constantine select for the New Testament--from some 80 contending Gospels--the only four Gospels that stressed that Jesus was divine? Was Jesus Christ married to Mary Magdalene? Did the Church suppress Gospels that told the secret of their marriage? Bart Ehrman thoroughly debunks all of these claims. But the book is not merely a laundry list of Brown's misreading of history. Throughout, Ehrman offers a wealth of fascinating background information--all historically accurate--on early Christianity. He describes, for instance, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls ; outlines in simple terms how scholars of early Christianity determine which sources are most reliable; and explores the many other Gospels that have been found in the last half century. In his engaging book, Ehrman separates fact from fiction, the historical realities from the flights of literary fancy. Anyone who would like to know the truth about the beginnings of Christianity and the real truth behind The Da Vinci Code will find this book riveting.

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: Who was Mary Magdalene? Was Jesus Married? Would Jesus Being Single be Un-Jewish? Do the So-Called Secret Gnostic Gospels Help Us Understand Jesus? What Is the Remaining Relevance of The Da Vinci Code? 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.

Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete? • Is it possible Christ did not die on the cross? • Is it possible Jesus was married, a father, and that his bloodline still exists? • Is it possible that parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal one of the best-kept secrets of Christendom? • Is it possible that these parchments contain the very heart of the mystery of the Holy Grail? According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible — they are probably true! so revolutionary, so original, so convincing, that the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversey. "Enough to seriously challenge many traditional Christian beliefs, if not alter them." — Los Angeles Times Book Review "Like Chariots of the Gods?...the plot has all the elements of an international thriller." — Newsweek From the Paperback edition.

"...with my death, the Earth and every star in the universe died as well: it was the end of the world, the Big-Bang." With the book "Following the Da Vinci Code" I wish to subvert the way religion is usually interpreted and make it so the truth about religion is known. "After having discovered that Jesus blood still courses through people's veins, I start having a strange feeling, as if my secret was discovered and the world was out to get me.." Picking up from the ending of Dan Brown's best seller "The Da Vinci Code", in which the author speaks of the Messiah's descendants, I've written a funny, innovative sequel, one not to be missed, written by the hand of the one who has been in contact with the True God for the most time, me! From "www.recensionelibro.it": "Antoine, with his thought provoking theories, manages to make many a reader sneer, as he explains in his book "Following the Da Vinci Code" how Jesus descendants are among us and how the political class knows this and hides it for their own gain, by telling us that God exists and that the Big Bang did not create anything. The reader shall surely be curious about the conclusions to which Antoine arrives in his book "Following the Da Vinci Code". Such a thing we cannot reveal here, but we can drop some hints: "My vision of the universe is endless and infinite, and one day I wish for each and every one of you to be immortal deities."

As millions of readers worldwide react to Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, so do many scholars. The novel has become a proxy debate for two compelling scholarly and social issues of our time: the feminist/post-feminist challenge to patriarchal authority; and the textual construction of meaning and value. Presenting the feminine as both dominant and sacred brings attention to every text which argues for dominance or divinity. Traditional scholars are being challenged to defend their disciplines and practices, to reassert the authority of their knowledge base. Postmodern scholars are finding an opportunity to explain to the world at large how texts construct meaning and maintain power structures. These essays examine resistance to the sacred feminine in religious, cultural, and literary histories. Robert Davis explores the return of the goddess to academic and popular discussions. Deanna Thompson examines the apocryphal evidence brought into the debate by the novel. Rachel Wagner looks at the larger issue of postmodern textual authority, and how Brown’s novel has brought Biblical interpretation to popular awareness. Arlette Poland reviews current feminist and academic thinking on textual versus spiritual authority regarding the feminine divine. Other essays identify the elusive and misunderstood sacred feminine in religion and literature; in church teachings and practices; in the variant Grail stories; in the mystery genre itself. Together, these essays place the reaction to these issues into broader social and contemporary contexts.

Before the multi-million, runaway bestseller The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown set his razor-sharp research and storytelling skills on the most powerful intelligence organization on earth--the National Security Agency (NSA)--in this thrilling novel, Digital Fortress. When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant and beautiful mathematician.

Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves. From the underground hallways of power to the skyscrapers of Tokyo to the towering cathedrals of Spain, a desperate race unfolds. It is a battle for survival--a crucial bid to destroy a creation of inconceivable genius...an impregnable code-writing formula that threatens to obliterate the post-cold war balance of power.

Einstein’s famous dictum: “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” Also, Einstein had said earlier in his life, “I am not interested in this phenomenon or that phenomenon, I was to know God’s thoughts—the rest are mere details.” However, Einstein completely failed to link science with religion and miserably failed to know anything about God’s thoughts, hence this book, which introduces the link between science and religion and fully explains God’s thoughts. It also finishes Einstein’s “unfinished symphony.” The book defines, for the first time, the concept of the paradigm shift in the religious model, which necessitates the scientific proof for the religious case. It answers most of the big questions that baffle humanity and answers the question, Who is God? It categorically rejects the “faith of animal,” gives the necessary and sufficient proof to the correct faith in the true God, and defines very clearly the destiny of mankind. It also defines the true path of salvation to mankind based on contemporary science and technology. This leads mankind to fulfill the objectives of their creation and leads them to the promising eternal life of happiness and to help spread peace on earth. The book explains the reasons why it is considered the scientific version of the Da Vinci Code movie. It also ends with a concept about the end of history, more general and more comprehensive than that given by Francis Fukuyama in his book The End of History and the Last Man. It also ends with the meaning of the harmony and reconciliation of civilizations. Contrary to the theory of Samuel P. Huntington, presented in the book is the clash of civilizations. That emphasized the destruction of human civilizations.

This book offers a stunningly new interpretation of the role of the women in the Hebrew Testament. Using the Judaic mysticism of the time it represents them as aspects of the Divine Feminine — the Creatrix of the World. The lives of the Matriarchs and Heroines of the Bible viewed through the eyes of mystic and bible historian, Rev. Maggy Whitehouse, outlines the development of the feminine aspect of the human soul. This reveals the women as archetypes as relevant to us today as to the Jews and Christians 2000 years ago.
