More than fifty books debunking the religious claims of The Da Vinci Code have been published. This, however, is the first book devoted to a fundamentally more interesting question: if those claims are so unfounded and erroneous, why have they resonated so strongly with millions of intelligent readers and filmgoers?From the sexual abuse scandals that shook the foundations of the Catholic Church to the 9/11 terrorist attacks that cast a cloud over a troubled nation, Eric A. Plumer's "The Da Vinci Code Phenomenon" investigates the contemporary events, ideas, and movements that fostered Dan Brown's dominance of best-seller lists and dinner table conversations. This engaging book is sure to stimulate further discussion about the role of religion in contemporary life.
