About this Book

From the Stories of Faith and Fame series stories of men and women who went all over the world with their Christian faith.

Toyohiko Kagawa (18881960) chose to live in the slums of Tokyo. When defeat came to Japan after the terrible war, the Prime Minister sent for Kagawa and said, "It is not our bodies that need help, it's our minds our spirits. Dr Kagawa, you must help to put the spirit of Jesus into the hearts of our people. You must teach us how to love our enemies!" This is one of the most moving stories of modern Christianity.
