This author’s novels, which feature the Robert Langdon lead character, also contain Christianity and historical themes, resulting in controversy. On his official website, Brown says that his books are not against Christianity, but he himself is on a “continuous spiritual journey”, and states that The Da Vinci Code book is just an entertaining story promoting spiritual debate and discussion. As a matter of fact, Brown claims that this book may be utilized as a good catalyst to introspect and explore our faith. He is one of the all-time highest selling authors in the world.
