Editorial Reviews


This booklet packs a tremendous amount of accessible, reliable information in a small space. I highly recommend it! -- Carl Olson, co-author of "The Da Vinci Hoax"

About the Author

Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and raised in Arkansas. He grew up nominally Protestant but at age 20 experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, Jimmy started an intensive study of the Bible, but the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, "A Triumph and a Tragedy," is published in the book "Surprised by Truth." Jimmy is director of apologetics and evangelization at Catholic Answers, a contributing editor to "This Rock" magazine, a weekly guest on the global radio program "Catholic Answers Live," and the author of several books, including "Mass Confusion: The Do’s and Don’ts of Catholic Worship" and "The Salvation Controversy."

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Thomas T. Verga on May 2, 2006
This book is intended to be a quick treatment of a very difficult subject.

Brown makes at least one error per chapter in his book and it would take a lot more space to thoroughly refute all of them.

This book does not try to do that. Instead it seeks to give a general overview of each error and provide general refutation of them.

If you want the short explanation then this is the book for you.

If you are looking for more depth then I would suggest either "The DaVinci Hoax" by Olson and Miesel, The DaVinci Deception" by Shea and Sri, as well as another by the same title by Lutzer, or "de-coding DaVinci" by Amy Wellborn.

Each of them presents an in depth study of the problems, but if you just want a quick analysis, then this is the book for you.

I would reccomend that each parish buy several copies of this and use them for a class refuting Brown, or sell them in the foyer book rack.
