SINGAPORE - A Catholic bookshop, Catholic News Book and Media, has ordered a large number of copies of "The Da Vinci Deception" to provide Catholics and others interested to learn the truth about Jesus and the Catholic Church "a powerful antidote to the untruths" found in "The Da Vinci Code".
Don Gurugay, manager of the bookshop, which is located at the Catholic Archdiocesan Education Centre in Highland Road, said that "The Da Vinci Deception" which is available at the bookshop and at Katong Catholic Book Centre, is priced at $9 a copy. Mr Gurugay expects that the book will refute the many outlandish claims of the "The Da Vinci Code" and clear up the questions many Catholics may have.
Ascension Press, publisher of "The Da Vinci Deception" says that the easy-to-read, question- and-answer book tackles the key errors in DanBrown's blockbluster. "It is the perfect giveaway to family, friends, parishioners, and anyone you think may be in danger of having their faith in Christ and his church eroded by ("The Da Vinci Code") mockery of truth," it adds.
It's website at http://www.davinciantidote.com/ has free downloadable study guides to help run study groups at home, school, and church. These discussion guides use "The Da Vinci Deception" as an easy-to-implement, effective programme for youth and adults.
