Product Details

Product Description


I have been looking for a book like this for some time to use in courses on Japanese Christianity. While there are stellar publications on the so-called Christian century in Japan, spanning the late 1500s through early 1600s, there has been nothing on the modern period covering Christian history from such a wide and diverse perspective. Xavier's Legacies is a much-needed book in the fields of Asian and religious studies. - William Farge, S.J., author of The Japanese Translations of the Jesuit Mission Press, 1590-1614

Book Description

A path-breaking exploration of Catholicism’s deep-seated influence in Japan.

fascinating, deeply thoughtful and thought-provoking. May 26 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not a Catholic, but this book was fascinating to me. It covers history, biography and mystery as well as religious philosophy. It read like a mystery novel. Highly recommend.
