16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By John C. Ervin on March 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
Sometime I would like to go into more detail about this remarkable short book, but pressed for time, I want to post something to adorn the all too small reader response (thus far).

If you read this and are not persuaded or fundamentally moved at your depths by the profusion of detail about the history of this miraculous image of the Virgin Mary, including the bombing of the Tilma in the Cathedral in Tepeyac in the days of the pre-Calles regime, that blew out windows and seriously warped a wrought iron altar crucifix but didn't even break the glass protecting the miraculous Tilma of St. Juan Diego, then you are, like some images of Quetzlcoatl, made of stone.

Read the book, and get back to me, I've read it many times since buying it in the gift shop of Mission San Juan Capistrano in 2000, and am flabbergasted by Mr. Johnston's exploration of key cultural events in the transition between the old order of the Aztecs, and the New Life brought by the Franciscans. Especially, in the opening pages, the vision ~near death experience?~ of Princess Papantzin, sister of Montezuma, who escaped from the crypt where they were prematurely burying her, alive, to tell of a luminous being with a cross on its forehead, that led her down to the sea and showed her ships that would arrive in not many years, that were emblazoned with the same Cross.

There is a distinct upside to the Conquista, and this book tells the story.

Princess Papantzin became one of the first converts to the new Religion, along with a "pobrecito" Nahuatl named Juan Diego.

Read the story, too, if you can find it, from a book of John Steinbeck's "Uncollected Short Stories of...

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By big reader on February 17, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is a concise and charming primer to Our Lady of Guadalupe for someone without understanding of the topic. It details life in the Aztec empire, has some important historical and cultural details of Mexico at the time of the Spanish conquest, and then, quite importantly, details the way in which various enemies of the Church and of the Mexican people have tried to destroy faith in her intercession but were always unsuccessful.

This book increases and importance as time goes on with the Latinization of the US and rapid Hispanic population growth and influence here in the Southwest. The fact is that Mexico has a wonderful and beautiful history completely apart from the US - and this history centers on a person: the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Guadalupe. Read it and re-read it - the details are quite interesting and the presentation is quite charming and accessible.

This is one of the greatest books written on modern miracles that show proof that there is a living God and he has sent his only son to earth through the Blessed Virgin Mary to try and lead us toward God. This is my third copy and I will always treasure the book.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By DJ. on August 23, 2014
Format: Paperback
Without a doubt, this is a book that you can NOT put down after you begin it. It is by all standards the " definitive" study on
Our Lady of Guadalupe.* It is the book that I have downloaded onto my iPad and the book that I give to many friends in order
To learn about Our Blessed Mother, Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Mother of Mercy. One becomes "one" with the book as
each passing chapter unfolds a deeper and more profound intimacy with the Woman that Christ called Mother. Whether a person is five or seventy-five, this book is for you. Positively, you will not be disappointed!! I just returned from a visit to
Guadalupe in August 2014, and this book was my traveling companion. I highly recommend it!!! DJ. (* Although there may be
Longer scholarly works written, in my opinion, everything begins with The Wonder of Guadalupe).

I have a collection of Guadalupe books and have traveled and studied in Mexico gathering information on my own. This one of the best books to give the average or even the more serious person an informed overview the Guadalupe events. I have used this book to teach theology in a Catholic institution. The book is a good read, holds interest, and it is a good length.

I found this book, based on very thorough research, to be an excellent read. I learned much more than I "believed" I knew about this miraculous event. This book has citations to other research, which has helped me to further my own research. The language is presented in layman's terms and is powerfully moving for such a short read.

I did not know anything about Virgin of Guadalupe and found the book to be informative and interesting and why so many individuals have chosen to believe in her.
