Below is a copy of a letter sent to me. I am posting it because with the popularity of the Da Vinci Code book, the movie will be just as popular and will effect more people. Even though it's a work of fiction people tend to be inspired and even changed by certain things that they hear. We as Christians have to use the word of God to combat this and to discern the truth.
Are You Ready for the Da Vinci Code?May 19, 2006 could well touch off the most controversial period the Church has faced in years. Why? Because Dan Brown’s best-selling book, The Da Vinci Code will be released as a movie on May 19th starring Tom Hanks and directed by Ron Howard. We have an unprecedented opportunity to equip the body to answer the challenging questions this movie raises about Christ, his Word and the Church. If we approach this with skill and readiness, we can seize this opportunity to open compelling conversations with the lost.
Da Vinci Code Help from Josh McDowell Our friend, Josh McDowell, has produced several excellent resources to help you answer the tough questions raised by skeptics and segue into the real gospel. One is a 20-page mini-magazine created to be a companion guide to the movie. Another is his book, The Da Vinci Code - A Quest for Answers. For more info, go to www.davinciquest.org.
Da Vinci Code TractDa Vinci Code fans will fight for this one! This tract is twice the size of the million dollar bill and looks like a valuable collector’s item. Please don’t miss this opportunity to get the gospel into the hands of the unsaved. Get the tracts and take a team to the theaters. We have learned that the criteria for a good tract is “If we would like to give it out, so will you.” This is because in the past we have produced tracts that were creative, but we didn’t really feel excited about giving them out. However, when we saw this tract, we couldn’t wait to give it out.( Information taken from the Way of the Master and Living Waters NEWSBLAST.)
