Radical Judaism Is Wrong

Does Daniel Levin Know the Location of the Second Temple Menorah?

12 Tishri 5770 – September 30, 2009
There is no denying that Dan Brown has become one of the most successful contemporary writers on religious art. The Lost Symbol recently sold a million copies on its first day of release, and it would only take 81 such days to surpass total sales of The Da Vinci Code. Perhaps because of his success, many are less than impressed with Brown's writings.

"Just the name Dan Brown was enough."
