Debunking Da Vinci

Dan Brown's sensational novel, The Da Vinci Code, has proven to be a runaway best seller, aided and abetted, in no small part, by its racy conspiratorial theory of church history. Because many readers don't know their Bible or their church history, they've been taken in by Brown's fanciful reconstructions.

For the benefit of the uninitiated, here are some handy resources:
