A Book Review: Da Vinci Code

If you happen to read Dan Browns Da Vinci Code, you cannot surely get away with fascination and there is no cessation of the interests of your thoughts. Your schemata of the traditional belief of Christianity, specifically Catholicism which is based on the concept of the Holy Triad God the Father, Son and Spirit will be summoned to confusion. The plot of the novel propagates controversies touching the present conflict of people, scholars and scientific-minded people. Da Vinci Code seems like the modern counterpart of Charles Darwins Theory of Evolution basing merely how it has challenged modern believers to dispute the facts being displayed in this fictitious literary work of Dan Brown. If this book claimed to be real, the world will lose its present order. However, this is based on untrue status or make-believes, thus the facts inside the novel fiction are based on historical data turning them to lines to be stored in readers memories as possibilities, which would make the story more likely realistic and worth believing. Another matter about the book, its plot takes you to open self-made questions resulting to cognitive upheavals about the truth of Catholicism. The novel is both understanding the story literally and interpreting the issues made up by the book that they are merely fictitious and theres no reason to prove the truth over fiction.

The thoughts inside the book have provoked many, which prove how engaging they are to read and understand. Airtight issues were detailed in the story flow making it look like for real leading to a readers self debate of the heart and mind. Reading the story is like transforming yourself to a lawyer who happens to be yourself defending a defendant who are also your personal beliefs. The plot has dealt surely well with the hanging historical issues of the Catholic Church which led to inculcate the possibilities or what if’s though the plot is clearly based on inaccurate past beliefs or myths. What makes the author showcase his best is when each word of the story defines the novels title. Each word has surely coordinated so well to increase the mastery of the storys suspense and order.

The book is far from being a threat of the religion. It has even opened new perspectives about Catholicism, which widens our schemata about it. The challenge being put up on the book against the religion weakened not the faith because there are more miracles about life in this book than crashing down the grounds of the church. The book has enriched also our understanding about Jesus and His means of living in the past through certain issues being discussed, which marked not as the closure of possibilities to the public. When the Vatican took actions answering the questions raised by the book against the Church, it is normal, and it has benefited surely the believers of knowing more the faith. This thriller has surely mixed-up the world yet added order of our thinking towards our spiritual thought about our personal beliefs.

This enigmatic novel has raised numbers of questions.

Keller Fishback

There were two hundred book writings or over in the New Testament. How did the selection practice of the present books inside the said Testament was done? How could it be that many Pagan signages are used as bases of the Catholicisms establishment? Could it be that Mary Magdalene is Jesus wife since naturally Jesus is a Jew and His community believes not in monastic life for it prevents procreation of the chosen people?

There are more to ask on reading the novel which has led the world to an abrupt confusion of the faith considering the fictitious status of Dan Browns work. The order of the story and how the thought was organized challenged not the faithful as its objective but to puzzle the mind of the readers and seek for answers as they flip the next page. This is real enhancement of the mind as it defeats other prominent means of logical thinking.

Would you believe that Jesus had a child brought to Spain together with Magdalene as His wife and Joseph of Arithmea after his death?
