Written by Monsignor Eduardo Chavez and Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus and former assistant to Jesse Helms, this audiobook is a history of the Virgin in Mexico, and a breezy hagiography for the devout.
Today, Our Lady of Guadalupe continues to inspire the devotion of millions. From Canada to Argentina - and even beyond the Americas - one finds great devotion to her and great appreciation for her message of love, unity, and hope. Today reproductions of the Virgin's miraculous image can be seen throughout North and South America, in churches and homes, on billboards, and even on clothing. Her shrine in Mexico City, where the miraculous image is housed to this day, is one of the most visited in the world.
In Our Lady of Guadalupe: Mother of the Civilization of Love, Carl Anderson and Eduardo Chavez trace the history of Our Lady of Guadalupe from the 16th century to the present and discuss how her message was and continues to be an important catalyst for religious and cultural transformation.

Good book but difficult to get through
I really enjoyed this book because I absolutely love the story of Our Lady. However, it was hard to stay focused because many things seemed repetitive. The first chapter was very long when it could have been shorter. The actual story is fascinating but the theological and technical information was just too dry for me.
