Two questions for devout Christians: Did the book offend you? Will you see the movie? I loved the book. What is fact and what is Dan Brown's hypothesis is uncertain, but Brown is correct that many gospels are not in today's bible. Anyone who turns on a tv has seen that the Mary Magdalene gospel was actually found recently. Brown never implicates the church in the book's murders, and says that the clergy are peaceful believers in their faith. Even the extremist opus dei bishop admits to being mislead by 'the teacher' (I won't completely spoil it for those of you who haven't yet read the novel). So the only time he really goes out on a limb is when he says that Jesus never claimed to be the son of God. His reasoning behind the creation of that myth is very logical. Though it is impossible to know whether or not such claims are factual. I was taught in school that Constantine converted Rome to Christianity only for fiscal purposes, so it would not surprise me if the texts of the Bible were doctored to make the new state religion more like the old. No matter what, to believe in God you have to have faith in what you can not see. If Jesus was not God's son, that does not change.
