Ready or Not, Here it Comes

The Da Vinci Code movie will be released faster than you think and I hope you Christians are prepared to answer basic questions on the historical Jesus and the reliability of the scripture your confused co-workers and curmudgeonly uncles are going to pepper you with after they see the movie. Even if they have already read the book, the movie will only stir up more wonderment as to whether Dan Brown is right or not. It is only going to be assumed that you, the Christian, will be prepared with some sort of response to the re-writing of history presented by Opie Taylor and Forrest Gump on the big screen.

As the Calvinist Gadfly mused last year sometime, chances are ole' Opie and Forrest are going to be paraded out onto the sets of Good Morning America and the Today Show as overnight experts on Church History and the hair brains like Katie Curric will be happy to allow them to pontificate without a challenge. That is even more of a reason to put down all the purposeless driven drivel and get your hands on some material that matters.

Here are a couple of websites I have encountered that will be a useful place to at least start:
Dr Trevelyan's Da Vinci Conversation
James White's Da Vinci Code page

I knew I should have shut down Dr. Trevelyan earlier! Now I'll just have to keep going, I suppose!
