The Da Vinci Deception; Erwin Lutzer; The Da Vinci Code
I have not read this book, but it comes highly recommended from various sources.
I have read several short items exposing the falsehoods and myths in the Da Vinci Code. My prediction is that those who believed that Bill Clinton "did not have sexual relations with that woman" will similarly have their opinion of Christianity shaped by the "Da Vinci Code."

Brown's human Jesus interests us only because the
divine Jesus of the Gospels interests us. If Brown's were
the real Jesus, there would be no such religion as
Christianity; his early death would have been a merely
unfortunate interruption of a promising career, like
Mozart's, rather than the event that gave his whole life
its point -- the culmination of all his works, words,
miracles, teachings, parables, and predictions. Why would
anyone have bothered crucifying such an ordinary,
inoffensive man? Why would his message -- reduced to "Be
nice to other people" -- have upset either Roman or
Jewish authorities? Why would martyrs have died to bear
witness to him?
