The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown (Corgi Books [paperback] at £6.99).
A book which is the biggest selling hardback ever must have something going for it. It is a murder mystery that raises questions about the very foundations of Christianity.
Despite being a work of fiction it has upset many Christian groups in America. As a certain Rev. L.Garlow said "people are buying into the notion that Jesus is not the son of god" Well, there's a thought!
If you like a good yarn with twists and turns, you will like this book. It will certainly get you reaching for a book with an illustration of Leonardo's "Last Supper" to have another look.
Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.
