The plot outline of The Da Vinci Code is that a murder inside the Louvre leads to the discovery of clues found in the Da Vinci paintings, such as the Mona Lisa, which uncover information that has been protected by a secret society for 2,000 years. This information is so powerful that if brought out into the open, it could have major repercussions on Christianity. What this movie is really attempting to do, however, is to tear down the credibility of the historic Christian faith. This is not new by any means. Liberal theologians, philosophers, atheists, and various unbiblical religious leaders have attempted to do the same for a long time. The Da Vinci Code is just a more popular, though no less dangerous, attempt to rewrite history.

This book, Reinventing Jesus, is divided into five parts:

Part 1, which deals with the history behind the New Testament manuscripts;

Part 2, which answers critical questions about the ancient manuscripts behind the New Testament;

Part 3, which answers questions about how the Canon was determined;

Part 4, which answers questions about Jesus, His divinity, and what the early church thought of Him;

Part 5, which answers the question if Christianity used ideas from mythic gods and applied them to Jesus.
