“The DaVinci Code” is a murder mystery novel that sold tens of millions of copies. While it claimed to be fiction, it claimed to have a non-fiction, “factual” backdrop. But if that “factual” backdrop is true, then Christianity is false. The book claims, for example, that Jesus wasn’t believed to be divine until a Catholic conspiracy in the 4th century. But that’s not true. Jesus was worshiped as divine in the first century onwards. Dr. Kennedy’s message exposes the myths behind this mega-bestseller. Take it as 100% fiction, no problem. Assume that the history in it is true---which the author claims---big problem.
