Japanese Women Speak is a collection of essays from Christian women living in Japan. It was collected by author Michi Kawai and published in the United States in 2007.
From the GoodReads description,
“This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. This work was reproduced from the original artifact, and remains as true to the original work as possible. Therefore, you will see the original copyright references, library stamps (as most of these works have been housed in our most important libraries around the world), and other notations in the work.”
I will admit, there were a lot of technical notes within the essays that I found a bit of a drag while I was reading. This information was a bit boring and I found myself skipping these moments within the collection.
Aside from that, there were several amazing moments in the book. It was fascinating to read the perspective on the faith in Jesus Christ and how it should impact society. From education to science to home life, these impressive women give their thoughts on how the Gospel impacts culture. Their thoughts were enthralling and it was so impressive the great detail they went into to bring the Bible into their world view.
The version I read was from Hassell Street Press and they did a good job translating the works into English.
