Monte Sahlin's blog on religion, values, and contemporary issues gives readers a quick digest of information relevent to the Adventist context.
His quick summary on how the Da Vinci Code functions within postmodern religious discourse gets well beyond the usual platitudes.
Monte writes:
"The idea that the largest religious establishments in the world today
are corrupt and have engaged in massive cover-up over the years is
entirely believable to the average person. It has already been proved
to them in contemporary headlines. If you must teach your children that
they most not entirely trust the youth pastor or parish priest, then
why should it seem strange to wonder if basic doctrines are somehow
untrustworthy?"
