The DaVinci Code is everywhere these days and I will admit I am somewhat behind the curve on it. I remember the hubbub when the book came out, but honestly I never read it. Now the movie with Tom Hanks is about to splash onto the scene bringing along with it a continuing controversy.
I have recently been reading with interest the rebuttals against the book, movie and the man behind it all, Dan Brown. The web is loaded with anti DaVinci sites offering help in telling fact from fiction. It is all a very big deal.
Now I am playing catch-up and asking myself should I be alarmed? Is this book and movie a heresy or is it just a work of clever fiction? Is it leading believers and seekers away from God or is it just giving those opposed to Christ more ammunition? I honestly do not know.
Nor do I know exactly how to react personally. Do I preach against it and advise others to not support it? To be honest it has not generated much buzz around me personally. Folks here are not talking about it all that much. And the people with whom I have discussed it all understand clearly that it is a work of pure fiction and do not feel threatened by it.
What do you think? I would be most interested in hearing your thoughts.
