Product Description

Review

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

Review

Xavier's Legacies, on Catholicism in the context of modern Japanese cultural and intellectual history, is a long-awaited volume. Here we encounter not the lives of saints, but ordinary Japanese who bring their ideas and their faith to bear on the transitions and the tragedies of their time.

Xavier’s Legacies is a much—needed book in the fields of Asian and religious studies.

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.
