A positive response to the Da Vinci Code


The Christian Enquiry Agency (not Centre pace The Telegraph's report) has arranged for 270,000 scratch cards to be placed in cinema's to coincide with the launch of the film version of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. The card's offer cinemagoers the opportunity to explore further 10 claims made in the book and return half of the card in order to receive a booklet covering the claims in more depth. Based on previous cinema outreaches that the Christian Enquiry Agency has run - relating to The Passion of the Christ and the Chronicles of Narnia - a large number of responses are expected - my own estimate is between 3 and 4,000 within 3 weeks of the opening night. I will be one of the team handling responses and arranging follow-up, so your prayers over the next few weeks would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. The New York Times has a very good review of the film here (HT - Paul Carden).
