Item description for Upon This Rock: The Sacrifices of a Japanese Nurse for a Young Church by Eric Gosden...
The beauty of the Christian faith shines out from this true story of Sumi San, a Japanese nurse who converted from Buddhism to Christianity. In the heart of Japan, when Shintoism and Buddhism held almost universal sway, Sumi San's zeal in winning others for Christ was often mocked and opposed, but it was her dedication that led to the foundation of a vigorous indigenous church in her village community. She lived just long enough to attend the dedication of the completed building. This deeply moving story is one that will challenge Christians and non-Christians alike to dedicate their lives to the service of others.
