Not Counting the Cost

Jesuit Missionaries in Colonial Mexico - A Story of Struggle, Commitment, and Sacrifice


At a time when the history of European involvement with indigenous peoples has come under increased scrutiny, Not Counting the Cost presents a balanced and objective study of the full scope of Jesuit involvement in colonial Mexico from 1566 through the Jesuit Expulsion in 1768. Against the backdrop of the dramatic stories of Jesuit evangelists, missionaries, educators, and martyrs in colonial Mexico, John Martinez, SJ, explores the complex and controversial issues of exploration and cross-cultural relations.
