  • Yes, a few years ago, and that's why I refused to read The Da Vinci Code. I felt Dan Brown stole from them.

  • I hartU... He did. After reading and researching HBHG he wrote The Da Vinci Code. But he has always given credit where it's due... That's something right?!?

  • I read it a while ago and it was hard to finish because I had problems trying to follow the supposed logic - I kept looking for actual references for the claims and there were none just a lot of speculation. I also read it in a book club that had a couple of midevil historians in it and they ripped it to shreds (and neither is Christian). They were rather irriatated that the authors were trying to put this out as some type of good scholarship. It's not a book that I would recommend.
