Guadalupe Hits the Best Seller List!

Well, the plot has thickened. Our Lady of Guadalupe,  the book which grabbed my attention when I encountered an ad for it  in The New Yorker  a while back, has now hit the  New York Times Book Review non-fiction bestseller list. It burst onto the list at # 6, between manifestos by right-wingers Mark R. Levin and Bill O’Reilly. You never know what’s going to grab the American imagination! Clearly, the Times best-seller list reflects the tastes of more than Manhattanites. 

I note, however, that in my earlier post I got the second author’s name wrong. He’s not Monsignor Lopez, he’s Monsignor Chavez. According to the book page on Amazon, Father Chavez is “one of the most renowned experts on the Guadalupe apparitions and the postulator of St Juan Diego’s cause for sainthood” as well as “the first Dean of the Catholic University Lumen Gentium of the Archdiocese of Mexico, co-founder and Dean of the Higher Institute for Guadalupan Studies and honorary Canon of the Guadalupe Basilica.” His co-author, Carl A. Anderson, is CEO of the Knights of Columbus. I wonder where they met?

And now you can download the book on your Kindle. for $9.99! If I had one, I might be tempted. If you do, let me know what you think.
