    1. This is a one of kind historical account of the religious human sacrifice practices of the paganistic of the Mexica/Aztecas. The author makes the sound Catholic argument that these were Satanistic practices which were battled by the arriving Spanish friars and priests. The author weaves a flawless tale of this dark period to the baptism of millions of 'new' Christians who joined the Catholic Church. I found this book an amazing piece of historical/cutural research an an excellent narrative.


    2. Carroll indeed is a historian and his summary of extensive research makes for a notable read on the background to Guadalupe. His wit and commentary come through only after he has established the history. His perspective is primarily from the viewpoint of the evangelization of a new culture to the truth of Christianity and it is fascinating. Carroll is the founder of a Catholic university so don't mind silly comments about his identity.



    3. Nevermind if you are a Catholic, a Protestant or neither. Are you against human sacrifices and for human rights? Well, then get rid of your prejudices and read this book. It is time that our young folk at college start getting the facts right, if not at college then through the original sources.

History is not to be liked o [...]


    4. A good account of the conquest on the Aztec's by the Spanish. This book gives a fair representation of the facts. It does not whitewash the atrocities committed by the Spanish after conquering Mexico City. It also states clearly the horrific accounts of the almost constant human sacrifices practiced by the Aztecs. Any nation which willingly mass sacrifices it's people in that horrid manner needs to have intervention.This book also gives account of the apparition of Our Lady to Juan Diego. It giv [...]


    5. I give this book 4 stars and not 5 because although this book is filled with many fascinating historical facts, I do not agree with everything that Warren H. Carroll includes in his book. For example, he seems to agree with the Dr. Callahan's conclusion that certain parts of the image on the tilma, such as the sunburst, stars, etc. of Our Lady of Guadalupe were made by human hands. Contrary to Callahan's conclusion that certain parts of the image were made by human hands, the evidence available [...]
