From the Back Cover
When Christianity landed on the shores of Japan 450 years ago, Japanese people were so attracted to the Gospel that they chose torture and death rather than renounce their faith. Today Japanese people seem indifferent to the message of salvation. What changed?
This study examines the invisible spiritual reality behind the 17th century persecution of Christians and the consequent spiritual strongholds that were established. These barriers are still effectively holding the Japanese people in spiritual bondage.
Through this evangelical account you'll learn:
- Historical reasons Japanese are resistant to the Gospel
- Three spiritual strongholds in Japan today
- How you can help overcome these strongholds
- Three redemptive gifts the Holy Spirit waits to release

Ultimately, get it on sale if you can. It, in some ways, is a decent entry book. Gives you an idea of the problems without really doing a full study and it is quick to read. But I knock off two stars just because I think the author could really expand it better. Then also for the price. This is at most a sub $5 booklet.
Even if you are not a Christian, this is still an interesting book to learn about the history of Japan. How did the Tokugawa family come into power? How did the First Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu become "God" and he was enshrined at Nikkō Tōshō-gū. Every year there are two celebrations to remember this Shogunate. Why 460 years ago this country experienced Christian revival, today Japan is called the burial ground of Missionaries. You need to read this book to find out.
