More Description

In Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Juan Diego, Eduardo Chavez presents the most important points of the Great Guadalupan Event: the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego, a recently converted indigenous man, in Mexico. Through a utilization of the numerous historical documents and investigations of this event, Chavez details the reality of what occurred in the cold winter of 1531. As described by Pope John Paul II, 'The Guadalupan Event is the perfectly inculturated Evangelization model.' Chavez's historical analysis not only represents strong scholarship, but also draws the reader closer to the spiritual power of the events. As the newest contribution to the series Celebrating Faith: Explorations in Latino Spirituality and Theology, this work is of course ideal for use in Latino Studies, but also appeals to wider audience more curious about the Guadalupan event and its meaning for contemporary Christianity.
