Editorial Reviews

John B. Cobb Jr.
—Claremont Graduate School
"This book not only provides interesting historical information but also helps all Christians to understand what is involved in believing the gospel in an Eastern culture. It shows that until recently Japanese theologians exhausted most of their efforts in adapting to their context discussions shaped by the Western experience. But now they are doing genuinely original work in the understanding of God that may prove to be in advance of what is taking place in the West."

James M. Phillips
—Overseas Ministries Study Center
"Here is a book that seeks to open the 'bamboo curtain' that has hidden Japanese theology from non-Japanese readers. The dialogue that it invites is sure to be mutually helpful."

Kosuke Koyama
—Union Theological Seminary, New York
"A fascinating historical narration of Japanese theology by five foremost Japanese theological thinkers today, this book meets a need widely felt in this area of ecumenical study. A History of Japanese Theology is most welcome and most timely."

Richard Henry Drummond
—in Mission Studies
"This book is of no little importance in japan itself, in all of East Asia, and, I believe, in the whole world.. A rich book."
