Silence - Endo

by Gordon T on Aug 10, 2013

Written by a Japanese Catholic about the Jesuit missionaries who ministered to Japanese converts in secret in the 17th century. When caught they were tortured to persuade them to give up their faith. The principal character faces this ordeal. The English translation reads very well. Absorbing.

Shusaku Endo provides an emotional view in the treatment of Christians in Asia. It is compelling. You won't want to put this one down until you've finished.
