 What a question. Especially to such a diverse group of people like us. I read the book and found it well written. It is fiction. I personally feel that so many people are looking for meaning and answers in life and this book intrigued many. Many people read the book feeling it was based on fact. I have seen many churches pop up with bible studies that are helping people divide fact from fiction with-in this book. I myself found what I would call errors in the book if you are reading it for fact, which I wasn't. I read it quite a while ago but I think,For example the book says that Jesus was married and had offspring. Several of my 8th grade students read it and one of my students said she and her mom are reading it together and said she was glad she was up on biblical history and theology or she could see how the book could make you question the Bible as the absolute word of God. I've probably said too much religious stuff, so I better go.

        I have to ask since I"m probably one of the few on this list who haven't read this book. Is it good? I at first thought it was non-fiction, but now I've have heard it not. What's the deal with this book?
