Why has The Da Vinci Code sold tens of millions of copies worldwide? Is the books phenomenal success due to its compelling characters, thrilling plot points, or impeccable research?

In the end, it is nothing more than a thinly veiled assault on the person of Jesus Christ and His Church.

This easy-to-read, question-and-answer book tackles the key errors in this devastating cultural phenomenon. It is the perfect giveaway to family, friends, parishioners, and anyone that may be in danger of having their faith in Christ and His Church eroded by the mockery of Truth that is The Da Vinci Code.
