The Da Vinci code & God’s Jewish accent

I’ve been enjoying the insights and wit of Conrad Gempf lately especially this one from “Might Jesus have been secretly married?” where he says,

“I don’t know about you, but I am SO tired of answering questions about Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. Last week it was the Discovery Channel and since they wanted to devote a whole programme to it, I doubt they’d like my comments:

Dan Brown is a novelist and The Da Vinci Code is fiction. Asking a New Testament person to comment is like asking a Marine Biologist to comment on Finding Nemo. The expert is of course going to say that sting rays do not sing and clown fish do not talk.

Enjoy the thriller for what it is, but when the lights come on it’s time to leave the cinema.”

The other article I’m looking foward to check out is Three Things “Gentile” Christians May “Never” Understand

    Hi Sivin!! 🙂

    I read the Three Things. Wow!! He sounds a lot like Deitrich Bonhoeffer, doesn’t he? Some good stuff to chew on. Thanks!

    God’s hope and grace to you, brother.

    Hey Sivin… thanks, the ‘default’ part really struck a chord in me.
