I saw the DaVinci Code with friends from the campus ministry. I'm lost on why the story should be considered a threat. If one wants to focus on the history or lack thereof, I suppose that could ruin the movie for some.
But if one wanted to look at one of the broad themes of the movie, a masculine church which abhors the body, the sexual, the feminine, treating such things as a threat, I can see why the story has a ring of truth to it, why it can seem compelling for so many folks.
But his summer I'm trying to find books that relate religion and the public square as I'm worried that the religious left is repeating the mistakes of the right. Been reading the Niebuhr brothers and hoping to get into Stout's work Democracy and Tradition.
