Religious beliefs about the “geography” of the afterlife – and the road map we must follow to get there – have varied widely throughout history. But few cultures have doubted there is such a place or that human consciousness survives to see it. Funerals have always been rites of passage from this life to the next, ranging in form from simple burial or cremation to immensely complex procedures lasting days or weeks. Ancient Egyptians, for instance, took more than forty days to mummify their dead, carefully keeping the body and all its organs intact so the soul would have a place to live in the next life.

Rhonda Byrne’s blockbuster DVD called The Secret has sold over 2 million copies since November 2006. Her book, by the same title, is reaching the 4 million mark since December 2006. The book and DVD are experiencing global success.

The controversy grows with every sale of the bestselling novel. Throughout the contemporary fictional storyline of The Da Vinci Code, author Dan Brown skillfully weaves “historical” assertions intended to shake the very foundations of Christianity:
CRACKING DA VINCI’S CODE is the long-awaited answer to these and other questions. Authors James L. Garlow and Peter Jones present compelling evidence that Brown’s assertions are not only historically inaccurate, but may also contain a hidden agenda.
Fiction or Fact? What is the truth about… Jesus: Was he married and the father of a daughter? Mary Magdalene: Was she Jesus’ choice to lead the church until some men took it away from her? Christianity: Did it really borrow everything from paganism? Women: Did the church really kill 5 million females? The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper: Do these paintings contain secret clues? This easy-to-use fact checker provides answers to the questions readers most often ask about The Da Vinci Code. Historically and theologically correct explanations are given for the more than 500 entries that include terms, concepts, people, locations, and events. Arranged alphabetically, dictionary style, this book is a must for thoughtful readers who seek more information about the claims of the novel and film.
The reader of this timely work by Dr. Jim Garlow will be impressed by the intensive research that has gone into its preparation. If there was ever a time that a fuller understanding of Islam-its beginnings, its objective, and its inevitable confrontations with Christianity was essential-that time was punctuated by the events of September 11, 2001. All Americans can benefit from a careful reading of this comprehensive analysis of Islam’s role in world affairs, and of how Christians must react.
