    One thought on “Christopher Columbus: Adventurer of Faith and Courage”

    1. This book is a horrifically misleading history of Christopher Columbus and his actions. It completely justifies colonization and manifest destiny in ways that distort Christianity and encourage racism. This is propaganda, plain and simple.

    2. I enjoyed the tale. The author made up for some of the areas that little is known about Columbus. The focus on Columbus life as a missioner is interesting. His title as an explorer is usually the main focus of many books, it was good hearing both missioner and explorer title sharing the main focus. I am more intrigue to read and learn more about Columbus from as a missionary.

    3. The setting is Spain, Portugal, the Atlantic Ocean, and America. In 1492 Christopher discovered a land. If he hadn't wanted to be a sailor when he grew up, we would be living in Europe! His brother, Bartholomew, made his maps! My favorite part was when Christopher discovered Jamaica. He saw the longest dug out canoes he'd ever seen. Some were 90 feet long!!

    4. We read this book as part of our homeschool curriculum Trail Guide a To Learning. We have enjoyed this book and learned so much. Even my 4 year old has listened to this book. We were glad to see it end, though. I don't think I would want to read it again.

    5. I really enjoyed reading this with my son. He loves Christopher Columbus now and wants to study about him constantly. It was a great book that shows the inspiration in the founding of America.
