Counter-attack on The Da Vinci Code

Cronaca and Bookslut (27 April entry) both have entries on the flood of new books out to counter the spurious history, not to mention the "feminism, anticlericalism and pagan forms of worship" of The Da Vinci Code.

From the New York Times: "The Rev. James L. Garlow, co-author with Prof. Peter Jones of Cracking Da Vinci's Code and pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, said: 'I don't think it's just an innocent novel with a fascinating plot. I think it's out there to win people over to an incorrect and historically inaccurate view, and it's succeeding. People are buying into the notion that Jesus is not divine, he is not the son of God.'"

Author Dan Brown welcomes the controversy.
