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.

A critique of the bestselling novel "The da Vinci Code" examines various elements of the story to separate fictitious literary creations from historical facts of Christianity.

Was Leonardo da Vinci the one person who stumbled onto a Vatican plot to conceal the truth about Jesus and then exposed it in his famous work of art. "The Last Supper"? Have sinister global religious organizations suppressed secrets that reveal "the real Jesus"? These are the questions people are asking after reading The Da Vinci Code: can the so-called "secret" Gnostic Gospels lead us to a Jesus we don't know?; did Jesus marry and have children?: was Mary Magdalene really one of the apostles?; were the New Testament Gospels assembled in the way "the code" implies?; and just how much of The Da Vinci Code should we believe?
