Other writers have corrected Dan Brown. Ben Witherington picks him up by the scruff of the neck, shakes him and says "Bad puppy!" Exhibits a prodigious intellect.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 083083267X, Paperback)

Dan Brown's international bestseller has raised many questions in the minds of readers.

, in blurring the lines between fact and fiction, popularizes the speculations and contentions of numerous more serious books that are also attracting wide attention. How should we respond to claims that we now have documents that reveal secrets about Jesus, secrets long suppressed by the church and other religious institutions? Do these new documents successfully debunk traditional views about Jesus and early Christianity?

Ben Witherington III confronts these claims with the sure-footedness of a New Testament scholar, yet in the plain language that any interested reader can follow. He takes us back to the early centuries after Jesus' death and tells us what we can really know about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, the canonical Gospels and their Gnostic rivals.
