Carl Olson and Sandra Miesel should have called this book "the davinci AXE" because thats what it did to the davinci code. Every single chapter and section of this book just chopped away at Dan Brown's dubious and uneducated claims.
The research that was done in this book is incredible. It's accurate and real as compared to Brown's so called research.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the truth about early Christianity and a very clear picture about the Catholic Church. God Bless the authors :):):)

Up till now, I thought Darrell Bock's Breaking the Da Vinci Code was the best book on exposing the errors of Dan Brown's multi-million selling foolishness. This new book is slightly better, primarily because it's more comprehensive.
For one thing, it extensively quotes not only the main characters in Brown's book as they relate their version of "history," it also has quite a few quotes from the author himself from various interviews. These quotes are then examined for accuracy in relation to a wide variety of expert opinion. In every case, the quotes Brown has his characters utter, as well as his own quotes, are shown to be either simply false or the opinions of a tiny minority of authors whose views have been found wanting at the bar of history and scholarship. This book, which is about twice as long as Bock's book (which is limited pretty much to the time before Constantine and the Council of Nicea), also covers a good deal more ground. Topics addressed include Holy Grail myths, the real Templars, the Priory of Sion silliness, and errors in interpreting not only Leonardo's Last Supper but his take on art, the occult, and Christianity in general.
If you think The Da Vinci Code--the foundations of which are a synthesis of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, The Templar Revelation, The Chalice and the Blade, Drawing Down the Moon, and the works of Margaret Starbird and other marginalized and/or discredited books--accurately depicts what really went on in Western history (which no serious person does who has any familiarity with the available materials), then you will not like any of the books debunking Dan Brown's ridiculous book, least of all this one. But if you want to find out what really happened, this gives as complete an accounting as you'll find anywhere.
In sum, this critique is extensive, even exhaustive, and in the end entirely persuasive.

A reviewer on this list advises us to grow up and get a life rather than read a book debunking the hoax perpetrated by Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code.' He suggests that wild story telling is the nature of fiction or even, one has to assume, historical fiction, in which a story is told within the context of real events with cameos by historical figures. This suggestion is, of course, just silly.
If a writer is writing historical fiction and tells his readers in story, say, that George Washington was a serial rapist and slave butcher - and that book sells a kazillion copies and is made into a movie, this reviewer would have us believe those books written to tell us the facts about Washington are all 'exploitation' silliness and unnecessary. Isn't it the writer of such fiction, who turns history on its head to advance a political or anti-religious agenda, the real exploiter? 'The Da Vinci Hoax,' by telling us the facts and correcting the absurd assertions and irresponsible errors of 'The Da Vinci Code,' will help, one hopes, to prevent Dan Brown's anti-clerical diatribe and exploitation of people's interest in the historical Jesus from becoming the popular understanding of Christian history. I say "one hopes" not because of any deficiency in this book; its scholarship and care in refuting the innuendo and outright nonsense of 'Code' is as comprehensive a treatment as will ever be published, I expect, and the authors are to be commended for their sobriety and their never descending to Brown's level. My doubts about its efficacy in correcting the growing popular idea, consequent to the 'Code,' that Jesus of Nazareth lived on after his crucifixion are only due to the greater reach of sensational fiction and a movie as compared to a non-fiction book, however well written and documented.

I read The DaVinci Code. I also read formula romances published by Harlequin. Frankly, the romances are better written. If it was not so anti-Christian, anti-Catholic, 'The Da Vinci Code' would be a rather hokey thriller. (I mean, what do you call a novel where almost all the protagonist does is run from point to point and lecture a dumb brunette who is supposed to be intelligent. In a believable tale, she should have heard all that stuff from her grandpere. No reason for him to hide her roots from her. In fact, every reason to tell her, so she can protect herself from the 'bad guys'. She just laps up all Langdon and Teabing tells her, no questions, no arguments.)

If The Da Vinci Code's author did not tout it as fact-based, and if it was not so anti-biblical and so full of historical errors about Leonardo DaVinci, there would be no need to debunk it.

This book does it well. Its authors present what Brown and his characters say and what his sources say. They rebutt that with what their authorities say. Bibliographic info pro and con, so I could find and read those sources to learn and make up my mind. I appreciated that, (It's more than Prof. Teabing gave Sophie. He made pronouncements, but did not pull out a book to back them up - unless it was "Holy Blood, Holy Grail", which was discredited history before "The DaVinci Code" was published. And the authors are right that Teabing does not quote the othodox New Testament, even to debunk it.)

The authors used clear language which did not 'talk down' but also did not talk 'academic'.

I confess I would have preferred the authors's bias to have been more for Christianity as a whole and less for the Roman Catholic Church. I'm Protestant. We have differences about what the Scriptures say.
