This is a unique book by a Japanese theologian hailing from Okinawa, a southern prefecture of Japan. Here the reader can see how the biblical principles of justice and love or neighbourly concern can be, should be, and are being, applied to the harsh realities of Okinawa.

Dr Takamitsu Muraoka, Professor Emeritus, Leiden University, Netherland

Though this book’s main challenge is to define the theology of social justice with the eschatological perspective of Christians in Okinawa during the U.S. administration of Okinawa (1945-1972), this book also introduces the mission work of God done by Christians in Okinawa in an extreme situation, in a period when the people who were socially vulnerable had been placed at the periphery of society.
