Letter from the Director

When I first visited Japan I remember how lost I felt, not even able to read any signs. Having to go on the orange line and count 12 stations then move to the green one and count another 5 stations, then count…

...even though I had visited so many countries up to that point, nothing had quite prepared me for the otherness of Japan. But it was an introduction to Japan by my Japanese brother-in-law during my second visit that turned that lostness into a love and deep respect for an amazing country, people and culture. And a desire to know more…

It was therefore a wonderful surprise for me to get the proposal from Martin Heisswolf! And now a book, a research project, in our Global Perspective Series to prise open what so few of us understand, and to help us understand some of the challenges the Gospel faces in Japan.
Japanese Understanding of Salvation.

We pray that this will challenge you as it is challenging us to pray that God will do great works in Japan through His people!

Langham Partnership – Making Disciples with Roots in God's Word

The Holy Spirit is flowing and building Christ's church to the glory of God, all over the Majority World. The centre of gravity of the global church has shifted from the west to the global south of Latin America, Africa and Asia.

But now there are many opportunities to strengthen the church in places that often face persecution, poverty and pressure to unlock the potential to transform nations.
