Summary:
"Dan Brown's popular novel The Da Vinci Code makes assertions that are in stark opposition to Catholic teaching and seriously misrepresents church history and doctrine. in 101 Q & A on The Da Vinci Code and the Catholic Tradition, two church historians separate fact from fiction and go beyond the endless refutations of Brown's assertions to focus on positive and, in some cases, surprising aspects of church history."  Read more...

Abstract:

"Dan Brown's popular novel The Da Vinci Code makes assertions that are in stark opposition to Catholic teaching and seriously misrepresents church history and doctrine. in 101 Q & A on The Da Vinci Code and the Catholic Tradition, two church historians separate fact from fiction and go beyond the endless refutations of Brown's assertions to focus on positive and, in some cases, surprising aspects of church history." "Besides showing where Brown went wrong, the authors also unlock the doors to the treasures of the Catholic tradition, and display the wealth of people, customs, and events that comprise Catholic identity. Far more than a mere Da Vinci Code "debunker," this book celebrates Catholic culture."--BOOK JACKET.
