Who am I kidding? I’ll be there queuing up to see the film with the rest of them. If like me you are largely ignorant you may find some of these links helpful:
The Church of England website has responses to ten frequently asked questions, and more.
Ruth Gledhill has been to see the film.
Christianity Magazine has The Da Vinci Opportunity by Steve Hollinghurst.
Andii links to a ‘bluffer’s guide’ taken from the Dallas Morning News site and republished on Religion News Blog:
If you have been metaphorically living under a stone because every time you peek out you get embarrassed that you don’t know anything really about the Da Vinci code and now they’ve gone and released a film, here’s your chance to reintegrate into society. A bluffer’s guide.
(I don’t really like Religion News Blog as they take entire stories from other sites and republish them without a direct link to the article, but in this case it is the only way to see it as the Dallas Morning News site is unreliable, ie sometimes it asks you to become a member and sometimes it doesn’t.)
If you’re not exhausted yet, from the BBC news Magazine: The Da Vinci phobe’s guide.
And lastly and finally: The Da Vinci Code film – resources for Christians from the Church Army.
