Finally found a Japanese understanding of Jesus!
I like this book because it is a fresh look at the Bible from within the perspective of the Japanese worldview. The author does not try to conform his translation to acceptable evangelical thought patterns. Rather, with credible scholarship in the Greek language, he gives us a fresh view of traditional passages. His translation fits the Japanese mindset. It makes sense and it is communicated as the incredible good news that it is. I especially like his definitions of Greek words into understandable Japanese at the end of the book. I've been searching for a Japanese understanding of Jesus and his message for a long time and finally I've found it. I'm very excited about this book.
