Japanese Understanding of Salvation
The dominating worldview in Japan is deeply animistic. Beliefs such as the Japanese mana-concept, ki (気) and the concept of God/god(s), kami (神), are pervasive among Japanese, fundamentally influencing their society. Dr. Heißwolf critically examines the animism in Japan in light of core Christian beliefs. This meticulous study is framed squarely within missiological thought and praxis so Christians serving in Japanese contexts are better able to communicate the message of the Gospel by fully understanding Japanese people.
