Da Vinci Code Truth Home Disclaimer General Disclaimer


Westminster Theological Seminary's web site, TheTruthAboutDaVinci.com seeks to present a balanced assessment of the narrative, the historical data, and the philosophy set forth in the best-selling novel and movie, The Da Vinci Code. We are neither a "boycott" site, which tells people to avoid the movie, nor a "rebuttal" site whose only purpose is to oppose fact with fact. Our aim is to follow the injunction of the apostle Peter, who instructed the church to be prepared to "make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you... yet with gentleness and respect" (1 Peter 3:15-16).

While appreciating the engaging narrative, and recognizing any author's right to present a good yarn, we are concerned because the mix of fact and fiction in the book and film is leading many readers to question the Bible's message and its impact on history. Using the best resources we can find, both human and written, we want to set the record straight and commend the historic Christian faith to the sincere inquirer.

Every resource we draw from, including news stories and articles, has merits we deem worthy of inclusion on our site and in our material. They include Westminster's own faculty, who bring the Reformed theological perspective of the Seminary to bear upon the issues raised in the Da Vinci Code. They also include persons and resources from outside our immediate community who may not agree with all aspects of our Reformed position, but whose integrity and wisdom eminently qualify them to contribute to this project, and contribute to healthy dialogue.
