So why on earth is a white, bearded geezer in a nightgown holding a lightning bolt more venerable to Dunn and Bubeck than the concept of an infinite Creator beyond human comprehension?

Several other Gospels have recently been written, giving their version of what took place during Jesus’ lifetime. 9. The others do not begin to understand, or fairly record, Judas’ passionate belief in and commitment to Jesus of Nazareth. Indeed, they have blackened my father’s name to the point where he is now thought of as the most infamous of all Jesus’ followers

This turned out to be a very interesting examination of the theological and spiritual worldview of popular author Dan Brown. This is not another expose of the hundreds of factual and historical errors in the Da Vinci Code or Brown's other novels, though it does reference some of these. This book is different in that it analazyes the spiritual worldview behind Brown's best-selling fiction, the "gospel" Brown is preaching. Because the authors build the case that through his fiction Brown is putting forth his own alternative gospel. But should we believe it? The book begins by asking and answering the important question, "What difference does it make, The Da Vinci Code is just a story, right?" The authors then proceed to define "story" as used by Brown and the New Testament gospel writers, then they explore the difference between "truth" and "fact," "myth" and "reality." Then the book briefly examines Brown's upbringing and background, a background which in large part shaped his current worldview and spirituality. Authors Dunn and Bubeck then examine the theology and spirituality behind Brown's novels Digital Fortress, Angels and Demons, and The Da Vinci Code. The book next compares and contrasts orthodox, historical Christianity with Brown's fictional version, which is really only repackaged ancient gnosticism, and examines whether Brown's fantastic reconstruction of Christian origins fits the facts as scholars understand them and whether or not such conspiracy theories are credible.

This book really surprised me by how thought-provoking it is. I'm going to have to go back and re-read a couple of the early chapters. For anyone interested in the Da Vinci Code phenomena, be they orthodox Christian or not, I really would recommend this book as an excellent resource. This book alongside works such as Garlow's and Jones' Cracking Da Vinci's Code, Darrell Bock's Breaking the Da Vinci Code, or any of several other good debunking books will be an excellent resource for anyone interested in the alternate spirituality advocated by Dan Brown and the orthodox Christian answer to it's claims. There's a lot of good material in this book.

This idiot chides Dan Brown for assuming he knows everything... and then himself assumes he knows everything. At least Dan Brown did some research.

Here's some little gems from this:

"Brown (via Langdon) assumes that members of "satanic cults" are NOT of a "devil-worshipping" nature, but this is something that should be proven rather than assumed (37)." p.163

What makes Dunn think Brown was assuming that? Could Brown's assertion possibly have been based on research? I'm betting Dunn is the one who's making the assumption that Satanists do "worship the Devil." He can't wrap his mind around the idea that we don't, so naturally, he assumes that Brown was making an assumption.

Want to know if we worship the Devil? Just go ahead and ask us. We'll be straight with you. The only reason they don't ask is because they're afraid of what they may hear. Brown at least has the guts to talk to his subjects (as he did with the Masons.)

Dunn goes on to insist that it's entirely reasonable to believe that not only do God, angels, the Devil, and demons exist, but they are literal anthropomorphic entities. He goes on to say "The ramifications aren't so laughable; in fact, they're kind of disturbing."

No, they are laughable, and saying that they aren't doesn't make it so. It's incredibly primitive and childish to think that Justice is LITERALLY a blindfolded woman holding a sword and scales, or that Death is LITERALLY a cloaked skeleton with a sickle, or Love is LITERALLY a winged baby with a bow and heart-tipped arrows. Imputing human characteristics on transcendent concepts is a means of putting them in terms one can understand, but taking them literally betrays a stunted cognitive capacity.

"After all, abstractions are much easier to control--much safer than people, much safer than God, angels, and demons."

Which do you feel more threatened by: a literal cloaked skeleton with a sickle, or Death as a concept? If you answered the former, you're too small-minded to grasp the implications of death. Which means more to your relationship: an arching cherub, or Love as a concept? If the first does, you probably haven't experienced as much as a junior high crush on someone.

So why on earth is a white, bearded geezer in a nightgown holding a lightning bolt more venerable to Dunn and Bubeck than the concept of an infinite Creator beyond human comprehension? Maybe they're still in Kohlberg's first stage of development. Perhaps they can't imagine anything beyond themselves, or a God that looks just like them.

I was hoping for an academic and factional critique of Dan Brown's historical inventions.
Instead, it is a Sunday School (elementary) review of the Christian New Testament.
It is "preaching to the choir."
