About this title


Book by Elison, George

From the Back Cover:

'George Elison's exuberant style, his amazing polyglot skills, and his overwhelming erudition make for fascinating reading. I believe this work will be accepted as a major contribution not just to this phase of history in Japan and the history o the Christian church but also other broader and very up-to-date problems of the meeting of cultures.'
