Uchimura Kanzo (1861–1930) was an independent, original, and thought-provoking pioneer of Christianity in modern Japan. His theological values were organically linked with his aspiration for living and practicing such evangelical ideas as prophetic existence, neighborly love, social justice, pacifism, patriotism, and internationalism in the sphere of public life. Uchimura's commitment to the interaction between religious thought and social life is apparent in his well-known epitaph: "I for Japan; Japan for the World; the World for Christ; and All for God."

In this interdisciplinary, multi-angled approach to Uchimura Kanzo, the contributors shed light on the inner logic, meanings, and modes of interaction between the religious and social thought observable in Kanzo.

Review:

Thomas John Hastings
--Japan International Christian University Foundation
"In these essays on Uchimura Kanzo, readers will discover fresh perspectives on the United States, love of God and nation, pacifism, missionary movement, Bible, church, and Christian doctrine from one of the most extraordinary Christians of late Meiji and Taisho Japan. Written mainly by scholars working in Japan, this collection represents an outstanding contribution to Uchimura scholarship in English."

Trent Maxey
--Amherst College
"Indicating how nationality formed ‘the uncrossable horizon of Uchimura’s thought,’ these essays explore the social and theological thought of one of the most prominent Christian figures in modern Japan. The topical approach of this volume complements more biographical approaches to Uchimura Kanzo, resulting in a compelling account of his struggle to articulate and live a biblical faith during a turbulent era of nation-formation and imperial expansion."

Journal for Japanese Studies
“The field of Unchimua Kanzo’s theology presents opportunities for further exploration. The Shibuya and Chiba volume is a stimulating start.”
