The controversy grows with every sale of the bestselling novel. Throughout the contemporary fictional storyline of The Da Vinci Code, author Dan Brown skillfully weaves "historical" assertions intended to shake the very foundations of Christianity: • Was Jesus merely human and not divine? • Did Jesus and Mary Magdalene marry and have children? • Is there a Holy Grail? If so, what is it and where can it be found? Cracking Da Vinci’s Code is the long-awaited answer to these and other questions that may have troubled you–or readers you know. Authors James L.
