Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code has been at the top of the bestseller list for over a year and the much-anticipated movie rendition is due out in May 2006. Many biblical researchers have come forward with books contesting Brown's position in his novel. The Da Vinci Codebreaker is one tool that others can use to measure the veracity of claims made in The Da Vinci Code.

The Da Vinci Codebreaker is presented as a 'glossary of terms, concepts, and persons that either are included in The Da Vinci Code or should have been included.' Garlow states, 'When people are truly open to honest exploration, orthodox Christianity fares well.' This exhaustive glossary covers from A-Z everything one might want to explore about what is portrayed as fact in The Da Vinci Code. Everything from simple terms such as anagram and manuscript to the more confusing or obscure Nag Hammadi papyri and the origins of the canon (otherwise known as the Christian Bible) are covered.

This is not a book one would likely sit down and read cover to cover, but is available to anyone wanting to explore both sides of the story before or during a reading of The Da Vinci Code. The Da Vinci Codebreaker sheds light on many terms, and will help readers to form their own conclusions.
