About the Author

John F. Howes, Professor Emeritus of Asian Studies atthe University of British Columbia, was awarded the Order of the RisingSun by the Government of Japan in 2004.


This long-awaited critical biography of Uchimura, by John Howes, professor emeritus of Asian Studies at the University of British Columbia, represents over fifty years of dedicated study ... The book is skillfully structure, enabling Howes to link his sensitive analysis of Uchimura's intellectual development to the major events in his life and the world around him. -- Helen Ballhatchet, Keio University, Tokyo * International Bulletin of Missionary Research, vol. 30, no. 3, July 2006 *
This huge, ambitious study is the final product of 50 years of research and reflection, and should become an indispensable first reference for anyone seeking detailed information in English about Uchimura. A welcome addition to the fast-growing body of valuable new writing on Japan. -- C.L. Yates, Earlham College * Choice *
In researching this masterful work, Howes delved deeply into Uchimura's writings, diaries and letters in order to portray his subject as a passionate yet conflicted man influenced as much by internal pressures as he was by external forces ... With this book, Howes has made an important and detailed contribution to our understanding of Japanese Christians in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. -- Jeff Alexander, the University of British Columbia * Pacific Affairs, vol. 78, no. 4, winter 2005/2006 *
