    Sparked by his reading of The Da Vinci Code, Greg Jones had grave misgivings about the scholarship that informed this immensely popular novel. He had grave misgivings about the vast number of people who might color their views of the very nature of Christianity from the "facts" as portrayed there. In Beyond Da Vinci, Jones does a convincing job of taking on those "facts" and does a noble job of extending the conversation. The result is a cogent description of the real facts about Christianity and Christian scholarship from an open-minded but rigorous priest and scholar.

    Greg Jones walks a fine line exceptionally well. Without denying the distortion of the Gospels liberating message by centuries of church-sanctioned sexism, Jones shows us that fiction passed off as non-fiction doesnt help the cause. His thoroughly researched and thoughtfully written critique of "The Da Vinci Code" helps the reader decipher the truth using none other than Holy Scriptures, Christian history, and the community of the faithfuls lived experience. In doing so, Jones makes it clear we need not throw the baby out with the baptismal water.

    Unlike fundamentalist attacks on "The DaVinci Code," Greg Jones thoughtfully employs the best of contemporary scholarship to explore the claims made by the bestselling novel about the Christian faith. With care and clarity, he both defends the Christian tradition regarding Jesus and the Trinity and enlarges it to include insights from feminist theology and spirituality. The result is a generous, intelligent, and truthful restatement of early Christian history intended to clear away the confusion brought on by Dan Browns book.
