About-

From conquistadores and explorers to Protestants, peasants and priests, eyewitnesses give narrative to the triumphs and tragedies of Latin America's religious development.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Fascinating.... As Goodpasture says, it 'gives flesh and blood' to the history he sweeps through, five centuries of Catholic and Protestant presence in Latin America, with so much weakness and so many efforts at reformation. Cross and Sword makes this history come alive in ways that few history books succeed in doing. It is especially timely in light of the forthcoming celebration of 500 years of the 'evangelization of the Americas', which should incite careful historical reflection - that 'celebration' would do well to take Goodpasture's book to heart."

Eugene L. Stockwell, Director, Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, World Council of Churches
