Reviews - What do customers think about Saint in the Slums: The Story of Kagawa of Japan (Stories of Faith & Fame)?

A Forgotten Christian Giant  Mar 21, 2001
Davey's book is a children's book - maybe like a lot of others very similar written by him or others in the series of "Faith and Fame" I'm not sure, whether I would hand to my children at the respective age and say "read it", for it contains this sort of Christian heroism I am myself fed up with. Still it's a book of anecdotes of Kagawa's life, beginning with his hard start as unloved child, then becoming a Christian through Bible study and his living in the slums of Kobe among those who he wanted to preach the Gospel. I was very impressed the first time I've ever heard about Kagawa, standing in a line with "great" Christians of the 20th Century, as they may be named: Albert Schweitzer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King or Mother Theresa, bringing the love of God to people not only in words but especially with extraordinary deeds. Unfortunately this book doesn't work out the specific personality and contribution of Kagawa. It gives rather the uniform impression of rather another saint in the history of God's people. So what should children learn or rather what impression may they gain from this book? That it's worth suffering in the name of Jesus? Tell the Gospel under rather hostile circumstances? This would take away the richness of Kagawa's life, who actually wasn't only the "Saint in the Slums" but also and even more leading figure in Japanese social transformation and peace movement, let alone his ecumenical efforts or his literary production. Unfortunately this book gives only poor impression of what Kagawa achieved during his life- time.
