Book Review: Columbus and Cortez, Conquerors for Christ

John Eidsmoe, Columbus and Cortez: Conquerors for Christ (Green Forest, AR: New Leaf Press, 1992) $9.95. 304 pp. Index. Endnotes.

Columbus and Cortez is an excellent and timely work for the 500th anniversary of Columbus' voyage. Heavy attacks on Columbus and his legacy by the politically correct have badly distorted the real explorer. And as Eidsmoe shows, such attacks are actually thinly veiled challenges to the Western tradition and, in particular, to Christianity.
