The book is very attractively bound and would make a lovely gift. It also has a tremendous amount of detail without becoming complex or boring. It is very well researched and written and I am sure it will be a blessing to anyone who wants to know more about this incredibly important apparition of Mary: it's continuing purpose and deepening relevance for all peoples at this auspicious time.

Profound and moving; one you MUST read 31 Aug 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This isn't just the story of Guadalupe. It's much, much more than that. Anderson and Chavez ask why Mary appeared when she did, and why Guadalupe has importance for the future of the Americas.

Mary's appearances resulted in the conversion of six million natives, at a time when the Catholic church in Europe had lost six million to the new Protestant religions. Yet the story of Juan Diego and his apparitions of Our Lady did not end in 1531.

In 1990, there was another miracle associated with Our Lady of Guadalupe. A man fell 30 feet and fell on his head, "and physicians diagnosed a large basal fracture of the skull--a wound that normally would have killed at the moment of impact, and even now destroyed any hope of survival or repair." (p 4).

But the young's man's mother prayed to Our Lady of Guadalupe. The young man sat up and began to eat. To the astonishment of his doctors, the young man not only didn't die, but he completely recovered, and doctors could no longer even find evidence of his fracture in brains scans. This would be the miracle that "led to Juan Diego's canonization" (p 5).

Every single aspect of the tilma's image had and has meaning. Even if you have previously read about the tilma and the apparitions, you will learn something new. For example, there are three kinds of flowers shown on Mary's robe. Each one has meaning. Most of all, the tilma still has great meaning for all the countries of the Americas.

This is one book you will certainly want to read.

One of the best i've read in quite some time 1 Oct 2009
By Paul C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just finished reading Our Lady of Guadalupe,and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

If you're like myself, and were only vaguely familiar with the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe before, this book will definitely drive home the importance of the event in terms of the history of Christianity. But it is much more than just a historical account.

After reading the book, you can understand why the image is so moving and powerful to so many Catholics in the hispanic community and what it means for the faith.

It is detailed and well researched, but unlike alot of books on religion and history, I found that it is written in understandable language and moves at a quick pace. One of the best books I've read in a while.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Mother of the Civilization of Love 25 Oct 2009
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book gives a detailed review of the appearance of Our Lady. The follow-up chapters tell about the impact the vision had on the Native Americans and the Spanish Conquerors. The book is well-written and profound in its thinking. It had a great bibliography at the end.

Intelligent Spiritual Reading 16 Oct 2009
By another reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you are looking for a discussion of what happened at Guadalupe and its meaning for your life today, this is your book. The strength of this book is the connections it draws between the events of 1531, contemporary culture, and recent papal teachings. The detailed study of the tilma and the events is authoritative, as Chavez is the official promoter of the cause of Juan-Diego's sainthood. I used this book as spiritual reading and found it interesting, easy to read, and a fruitful source for reflection. I can recommend it without reservation.

Fascinating account with special relevance to the Americas 19 Jan 2010
By Stratiotes Doxha Theon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a fascinating historical study on the meaning of the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The miracle of the image is expounded with miracles of its survival despite the elements and even an attempted bombing. But even more is revealed in the messages encoded in the Aztec symbols on the image. Images that reveal the dignity of the human person, the necessity of sacrifice, and the culture of life. Well worth careful and thoughtful study and deeply relevant to the people of the Americas in particular. A well written account with a treasure of meaning for us today.
