THE DA VINCI CODE Author Roundtable has brought together 11 authors who have all written books in response to Dan Brown's controversial 2003 novel, THE DA VINCI CODE. Richard Abanes, Darrell L. Bock, Dan Burstein, James L. Garlow, Peter Jones, Steve Kellmeyer, Erwin W. Lutzer, Sandra Miesel, Carl E. Olson, Amy Welborn and Ben Witherington III discuss why they believe so many people have accepted this fictional thriller as fact. They also address some of the claims Brown makes in the book about Christianity and explain the potential damage that his conclusions could inflict on a person's faith.

Meet the Authors:



1. What prompted you to write a book in response to THE DA VINCI CODE? How soon after reading THE DA VINCI CODE did you decide you wanted (or needed) to write about it?

2. Why do you think so many people have embraced THE DA VINCI CODE? Do you believe the spiritual climate in America today has contributed to its success, and if so, why?

3. do you think so many people have not only read THE DA VINCI CODE but also accepted it as fact rather than fiction?

4. Since it is fiction, why do you feel the need to refute Dan Brown's research?

5. How do you respond when you hear people say things like, "It's no big deal --- after all, it's only fiction"?

6. What kind of reaction has your book received? If your book has not been released yet, what has the response been when people hear you're writing a book about THE DA VINCI CODE?

7. Do you believe some of Brown's conclusions could damage a person's faith? If so, which conclusions in particular would be most harmful?

8. Which theological concepts addressed in the book do you feel require the greatest clarification?

9. Which historical errors concern you the most?

10. Apart from the theological issues that are in dispute, the book contains what we now recognize as numerous factual errors. What responsibility do you think Doubleday should take, if any, for allowing those errors to go unchecked?

11. What is your opinion of the books Brown cited as historical resources, such as HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL and Margaret Starbird's books on Mary Magdalene?

12. Brown has said he would not change anything if he were to rewrite the book as nonfiction. What would you like to say to him about that?

13. Have you read Brown's previous work that also featured protagonist Robert Langdon, ANGELS & DEMONS? If so, what is your opinion of it?

14. What do you hope your book will accomplish?

15. What are you working on now?
