Our Lady of Guadalupe Makes Bestseller Appearance

Our Lady of Guadalupe: Mother of Civilization of Love by Carl Anderson and Eduardo Chavez has remained in Amazon’s top 100 over the past week and now appears at #137 on the USA Today list.  The book traces the ways that the Catholic Virgin has been a catalyst for relgious and cultural transformation from the sixteenth century to the present. None of the libraries we checked had any copies.

The book’s rise is clearly tied to Anderson’s role as chief executive officer and chairman of the board of the Knights of Columbus – the world’s largest Catholic organization. Our Lady of Guadalupe was prominently featured at the first international Marian conference and the Guadalupe Festival – attended by thousands in early August in Phoenix, Arizona – both of which came on the heels of the 127th Annual Knights of Columbus convention.

Co-author Chavez is an expert on Guadalupe apparitions and the first Dean of the Catholic University Lumen Gentium of the Archdiocese of Mexico. He and Anderson created a video for the book, hosted on their website.
