DEBUNKING 'DA VINCI'
One of the current 'hot' Biblical scholars (is there such a thing?) takes on one of the current 'hot' novels. Ben Witherington III has a new book on the way: The Gospel Code: Novel Claims About Jesus, Mary Magdalene and Da Vinci, which as you can tell takes on Dan Brown's bestseller, The Da Vinci Code. Needless to say, Dr. Witherington is not impressed. The folks over at Beliefnet.com have obliged us with an excerpt. If nothing else, you have to appreciate the excerpt's headline: 'An Exercise in Pure Narcissism'.
