Description
 
El Cid, God's Own Champion is an inspiring new biography of the extraordinary Catholic knight chosen by God to save his nation from Islamic aggression. Known by the honorary title of El Cid, Rodrigo Diaz is a legendary hero whose story is directly relevant to modern times.

Exiled by his king, insulted and maligned by those who should have supported him, he selflessly fought against seemingly insurmountable odds to save Christian Spain. He commanded the respect even of his enemies--upon his death a Muslim historian acclaimed him, “a miracle among the great miracles of the Almighty.”

The Cid is an example of what can be achieved through devotion to duty, prayer, and trust in God.
