The hype about Dan Brown has somewhat diminished since the movie of his novel turned about to be a disaster. The sometimes vehement opposition from certain religious groups has, fortunately, ceded somewhat. In a post little over a year ago I argued that the big fuss is misplaced, since the book is fiction – nothing more, nothing less.
The debate is not dead, though. And some of the questions that the book posed may be valid and interesting. Starting tomorrow, my church, Århus Café Church, will do a series of talks about the book and the theories related to it (as Tvesok has also mentioned). Questions such as the validity of the Bible, the nature of Jesus, and Christianity itself will be the basis for four evenings with a presentation by Lars Dorland and rich opportunity for debate.
It will be interesting to see how many people show up. And hopefully also interesting to listen to the discussions. If you live in Århus, feel free to drop by.
