Continuing his critical examination of The Da Vinci Code, Dr. Fernandes looks at many of the false views and claims made in the book. Fernandes critiques Brown's views of Mary Magdalene, the Holy Grail and Da Vinci's painting, The Last Supper. He points out inconsistencies in Brown's views on faith and his misrepresentation of Gnosticism. Fernandes also answers Brown's claims that Christianity is anti-woman, pagan in origin and that Christian morality is outdated.
Great Sermon! I listened to the first lecture and found it educational, so I was naturally lured to this lecture and, again, was not disappointed. Every devout Christian should listen to this lecture series. Overall rating : Thumbs up!

Great Sermon! The various and sometimes contradictory explanations of Gnosticism that I have heard recently, including the Dan Brown version contained in his Da Vinci Code novel, left me more than a little confused. I would like to take the time here to thank Dr. Fernandes for providing some great guiding insight and clarification into what Gnosticism really teaches. His accurate description of the anti-Christian tenets of Gnostic beliefs was especially helpful.

Well Done! Dr. Fernandes demolishes Dan Brown's "novel". Christians should listen to this sermon to be better prepared against the new and not-so improved Gnostics of today.
