Pacific Press Develops Sharing Tool To Help
Adventists Share the Real Truth About Da Vinci Code


Nampa, Idaho (May 25, 2006) - With 60 million copies in print and $224 million in box office sales from its opening weekend, The Da Vinci Code has become a cultural phenomenon—a phenomenon that concerns many Christians due to scriptural and historical inaccuracies in the book. While the book is sold as a novel, it so skillfully blurs the line between fact and fiction that it’s strange theories can actually appear to some to be true.

Signs of the Times® and Pacific Press® have developed a new sharing tool, called The Da Vinci Code: Unveiling the Conspiracy, to help Adventists share the real truth about Jesus’ divinity and His relationship to Mary Magdalene.

"Our generation is susceptible to the ideas presented in The Da Vinci Code because for most of us, it’s been a while since we’ve looked at what the Bible actually says about Christ and what He did for us," says Shawn Boonstra, speaker and director for It Is Written International Television.

The Da Vinci Code: Unveiling the Conspiracy, written by Boonstra himself, is a compelling eight-page sharing piece that powerfully dismantles the inaccuracies of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code and delivers a stirring call to discover the real Jesus. Information on how to obtain free Bible study guides is included at the end.

The Da Vinci Code: Unveiling the Conspiracy will be available in your local Adventist Book Center® beginning June 8. A sample copy is available now online at www.AdventistBookCenter.com. Quantity discount pricing starts at $.25 each in packs of 100. Zip code mailings are also available for $.47 per copy, postage and handling included. To place an order, call toll-free (800) 765-6955.
