    Dan Brown's immensely popular New York Times best-selling The Da Vinci Code is one of the most successful books of recent history. It has captivated millions the world over with its enthralling suspense and its provocative questions about the true nature of Jesus' life.

    John Mertus says: "A historian's approach to the Da Vinci code"
    "A very useful precis of historical methodology"
    Overall

    This book is valuable in two distinct ways. Firstly, for those looking to understand the actual historical credibility of Dan Brown's book, especially as it pertains to Christian history and faith, this book will provide the lay (ie non-history trained) with a sense of where the historical consensus actually lies.

    However it's second contribution is equally, if not more important, and that is the background and tools to think more deeply about other historical issues and hypotheses, not least the basis of the Christian faith. Christians who are serious about understanding and evaluating the records of their faith left in the New Testament and other writings will gain immensely from reading this book and applying some of the principles found within it.

    The only reason I didn't give the book five stars is that it proceeds somewhat slowly, even for a non-historian.
