Answers to the Da Vinci Code—
More than 10 million people worldwide have bought
The Da Vinci Code, the best-selling novel that makes a lot of
troubling statements about Christianity, such as—
• Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and had children
• Jesus was not considered divine until Emperor Constantine had the Bible edited
• Certain books of the Bible were banned, hidden, and eliminated because they stated
that Jesus was a mere human being.
The author of The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown, says that his explanation of history
is based on facts. Even though the book is fiction, it has made many people concerned
about their faith and wondering if the church has deceived them.
Rose Publishing is releasing a quick-reference guide called Answers to the Da
Vinci Code. It answers the top questions people have about Christianity and the history of
the Bible—at a glance. It restores confidence by separating truth from fiction and
pointing out the errors in Dan Brown’s research and logic.
Answers to the Da Vinci Code can be read in just a few minutes. It is clear and
easy to understand, even for those who have never read Da Vinci Code.
Answers to the Da Vinci Code gives the facts about questions such as:
Was the recognition of Jesus as God really the result of a vote of bishops?
How do we know what the earliest Christians really believed about Jesus Christ?
Were the New Testament Gospels edited and embellished by the emperor
Constantine, to make Jesus appear “godlike”?
Is there any evidence that Jesus married Mary Magdalene?
What are The Gospel of Philip and The Gospel of Mary Magdalene?
Was the emperor Constantine the chief player in the canonization process?
Are the Nag Hammadi and Dead Sea Scrolls “the earliest Christian records”?

Did the established church know the whereabouts of the Holy Grail and use
“horrific methods” to keep this knowledge hidden?
“There are more than a dozen full-length books refuting Dan Brown’s claims, but
there is only one concise, easy-to-understand pamphlet: Answers to the Da Vinci Code. It
gives well-researched answers to the most disturbing questions. The price ($3.99) is the
lowest on the market. Now churches can afford to give solid information to Bible studies,
classes, and youth groups,” said Gretchen Goldsmith, president of Rose Publishing.
There will also be a wall chart available to put up in a classroom. On the back it has
a lesson guide and reproducible worksheets that teachers may photocopy and hand out.
