DaVinci Debate

There is great anticipation and trepidation regarding the release of Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code onto the big screen. I read the book and was riveted by the action and suspense, but nauseated by the fallacious representation of historical Christianity. Regardless of how you feel about it, you should enjoy this spirited debate between Bart Ehrman and Richard Hays that occured at Duke Divinity School.

Well, I'm almost finished with the book and getting less-and-less impressed with every page. At first, I was into it because I like suspense. But it gets more and more fantastic and less and less interesting as I go. The mediocre writing was forgivable at first but now it's getting old. The content - whether you consider it heretical or not - seems to bug me more becuase it could be presented better.

Finally, two people who agree with me on this! I bought this book because it was all the rage and several people I know said it was really good. Ha! The writing was middling, the historical claims were specious, and the leaps of logic were just silly.

Sadly, I'll probably see the movie, but more for Tom Hanks than the story.
