Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Island Empire of the East: Being a Short History of Japan and Missionary, Work Therein With Special Reference, to the Mission of the M. S. C. C This little book is the ripe fruit of knowledge and experience. Through many years of arduous and faithful service the author has earned the right to speak with authority upon the subject of Japan, its people and its missions. The volume he gives us comes from his heart as well as from his mind. Though but a sketch it will be found surprisingly complete, lucid, and interesting. To those who read it with care it should serve as an admirable introduction to a vast and perplexing subject, and as a stimulus to its further pursuit and mastery. To Christians, whose hearts are yearning in any degree towards Missions, it should be big with interest and inspiration. As the book goes out to do its work for Christ and His Church, I send forth with it, in the name of the Missionary Prayer and Study Union, these few words of commendation and blessing.
