Columbus & Cortez, Conquerors for Christ

by John Eidsmoe


Quick Overview

The controversy, the conquest, the mission, the vision. Columbus - conquistador or Christ-bearer? Did Christopher Columbus exploit the people of America, or did he evangelize them? What were his true goals, his motives, his reasons for undertaking the dangerous voyage? Cortez - militarist or missionary? Did Hernando Cortez subjugate the people of Mexico - or did he liberate them? And why all the controversy over these explorers? Is it really to correct the historical record? Or is it an assault on the values of Western Civilization and Christianity which is the source of those values?


Our stories being told in schools are limited to what information they give on Columbus's real purpose and goals were. His main purpose in wanting to sail to the Indies was in hopes of making converts to Christianity in order to build up Christiandom to drive back he Muslims or Moors in Spain and in Europe as well. They had been embattled for many years with the Moors in Spain and other countries were being overrun by this enemy to mankind. Very interesting reading. Learned a lot of stuff I never learned in school. Hernando Cortez did some amazing things considering his man power and equipment were so inferior in number to the huge advanced civilization.of the Aztec Indians. They were pagan god worshippers. Their religion necessitated wars and wars fueled their religion. Their religion believed they had to have blood sacrifices so war was the means they used to provide those blood sacrifices. How a man with only 553 men defeated over a million Azecs is indeed a rare read. Size - 0.9" H x 8.4" L x 5.4" W - 308 pages
