This fact will account for its condensed style and for some peculiarities of typography and paragraphing, which have been suggested by many years experience of the Student Volunteer Movements Educational Department.The subject treated is one of great fascination to every student of history, and especially so to those who are interested in the progress of the Kingdom of God. The reader finds here the story of the most astounding transformation within a few years that can be found in all history, and that, too, in our own generation. While no one can claim that Japans regeneration, which has scarcely more than begun, is wholly due to the work of Christian Missions, it would be equally untrue to overlook the importance of the missionary factor in these sweeping changes. The aim of this little volume is to exhibit the interworking of the many agencies in this Oriental renaissance and their true relation one to another, as well as to clearly depict the material, social, and religious environment of the Japanese missionary.The basis of this text-book is the admirable volume entitled Japan and the Japan Mission, which is published by the Church Missionary Society of London.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
