Since the mid-sixteenth century, Christianity has been notably active in Japan, and yet Japan remains one of the least-evangelized nations in the world. The Japanese and Christianity is an attempt to work out an appropriate response to the question, “What are the main reasons why Christianity has not yet succeeded in Japan?” It investigates various factors, i.e. the societal, cultural, historical, missiological and political dimensions of Christianity in Japan, in searching for possible answers. The Japanese and Christianity is a valuable resource for missionaries and those who are interested in introducing Christianity to the Japanese people.
