Dan Brown and Mary Magdalene

Many books and articles have been written skewering the pretensions of Dan Brown's best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code. Now a well-known (at least to some of us) biblical scholar takes on Brown's treatment of Mary Magdalene: Re-sexualizing the Magdalene: Dan Brown’s Misuse of Early Christian Documents in The Da Vinci Code, in the Journal of Religion and Popular Culture.

While you're at it, look at the last-but-one article on the left sidebar. The author, Greg Linnell, is a graduate of Redeemer. In fact, he took my Introduction to Political Science way back in 1987, during my first semester of teaching.
