The Da Vinci Code

Ross Douthat over at The American Scene has an interesting post on The Da Vinci Code the movie. In the course of that discussion he offers this critique of the underlying story:

But Dan Brown’s story isn’t like that. It’s not a serious-but-wrongheaded attempt to tackle the history and theology surrounding Christ, Mary Magdalene, the formation of the New Testament, and so on – it’s a badly-written farrago of deliberate lies and distortions, slapped together with just enough artfulness to keep the pages turning. It’s anti-Christian propaganda, nothing more, nothing less, and I really don’t see the point in engaging in serious, respectful dialogue with propaganda . . .

As they say, read the whole thing . . .
