Maier challenges "DaVinci Code" on PAX Network

March 14, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Dr. Paul Maier, the Russell H. Seibert Professor of Ancient History at Western Michigan University, appears in four segments, airing in March and May, of the Day of Discovery television series about Dan Brown's best-selling book, "The DaVinci Code."

Maier has been an outspoken critic of Brown's book. In 2004, Maier co-authored with Hank Hanegraaff "The DaVinci Code--Fact or Fiction?," which challenges the historical and theological accuracy of the "Code."

Day of Discovery airs Sundays at 7:30 a.m. on the PAX Network, including WZPX, channel 43, in Grand Rapids, Mich. The first segment, "Where Did The Bible Come From?," aired this past Sunday. The titles of future segments and the dates they are scheduled to air are: "Has The Bible Been Corrupted?," March 20; "Was Jesus Just A Man?," May 15; and "Three Marys Jesus Loved?," May 22.
