More Than Conquerors is an award-winning second novel by Filipino author Edilberto K. Tiempo.[2][3] The novel first appeared in 1959 in the pages of Weekly Women’s Magazine.[4] It was first published in book format in 1964.[1]


With the Filipino resistance movement during the Second World War employed as “background” of the novel, the focus of the narrative is Andres, a lawyer, and his two brothers. The three brothers were tortured by the Japanese occupiers by means of the horizontal spread-eagle "crucifixion" method. The brothers’ predicament echoed a similarity to “the Christ figure in the midst of temptation and at Calvary”.[5]
