Da Vinci Code Mayhem: A Sure Guide

It was inevitable. At some point, The Da Vinci Code had to be mentioned at least once at The Conventicle...but only briefly, I promise.

Some of you may be interested in reading this excellent article entitled Ungodly Errors: Scholarly gripes about The Da Vinci Code's Jesus by Larry Hurtado, Professor of New Testament Language, Literature, and Theology at The University of Edinburgh.

Prof Hurtado succinctly examines the fallacious claims of the book and movie regarding 1) the divinity of Jesus and 2) the formation of the New Testament canon.

This is a great resource for those interested in quickly catching up to speed with the historical and theological problems of the DVC, but who don't want to cull through the excess of books, articles, websites, interviews, and blogs devoted to this controversy.

Just in case you've not seen it, let me also mention in passing this superb website sponsored by Westminster Theological Seminary.
