From the Rising of the Sun

Christians and Society in Contemporary Japan
  • By James M. Phillips
--Here at last we have in Professor Phillips' book an indispensable road map to guide us in our understanding of Christianity in postwar Japan. His research is impressive, prodigious, and carefully conceived. His findings are illuminating, disturbing, and hopeful. I predict that this book will remain definitive in its field for many years to come.-- Robert Lee, San Francisco Theological Seminary, author of Stranger in the Land: The Church in Japan --A helpful survey and source book for the understanding of the historical development of Christianity in Japan since 1945.-- Masao Takenaka, Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan --This is an illuminating and scholarly study of the churches in Japan since 1945, churches of special interest because they have faced momentous changes and in some cases have been in continuous ferment. This book has significance also because it is about churches in which there has been intensive theological and social activity as they have gained more and more independence of the west; they have become a relatively new and very distinctive arena of Christian life.-- John C. Bennett, former president, Union Theological Seminary, New York James M. Phillips served for seventeen years as a church fraternal worker in Japan, teaching church history at Tokyo Union Theological Seminary. He also served as Visiting Professor of Church History at San Francisco Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union.
