Mart De Haan stated that The Da Vinci Code casts doubt on the reliability of the Bible: “When I first read The Da Vinci Code, I could see immediately why it had been on the New York Times’ bestselling fiction list for some time. It’s a gripping suspense-filled murder mystery, and it’s controversial: it claims a basis in fact that, if believed as presented, would contradict the story line of the Bible and give us a radically different Jesus. One of the main characters, a fictional Harvard professor, lends an upscale air of credibility to [Dan Brown’s] claims that the real truth about the Bible’s origin has been a carefully guarded secret of the church.” Why would those who have not looked into its historical development readily accept allegations against the Bible? What would be a more truthful and appropriate response to these anti-Bible claims?

      People like mystery. The church hiding a big secret would appeal to the masses. An appropriate response would be to actually read the Bible, study the history of the Bible. This would take away those false claims

      People in general are not quick to do their own research and will take the word of a credible source instead. If the author claims that he has backing from professors and that his book is historical, people will take it as is. I think people would be quick to believe Dan Brown due to their sin nature as well. These anti-Bible claims are unfounded pieces of flair for the fictional book and story with the intention of causing a stir. They are false.
