To Christian scholars and historians, the fight against The Da Vinci Code is not a new one. They have been battling the influence of this piece of literature since it was published. However, the battle has been up-scaled. A few weeks from now, May 19, "Da Vinci" will be released in theaters around the world. Although the story questions aspects of the Christian faith, I do not believe that this will stop Christians from seeing the film. Before Mel's "The Passion" was released, there was much speculation about what percentage of the population would run out to see it. The fact that the movie was about Christ didn't seem to stop viewers that were Christian, Jewish, or of any other faith (including no faith) from seeing the film. I believe that the film may actually draw in more viewers than your regular-ole-blockbuster. The publicity that the film is getting for its "slanderous offenses against Christianity" may be helping its case. People are curious. Those that have read the book will want to see how they did making a movie out of it. Those that have not read the book will want to know what the big deal's about. "Da Vinci" will do better than fine at the box office when it is released.
