A saint and Equal-of-the-Apostles of our own modern times, St. Nikolai personifies the ethos of Orthodox Christian evangelism. Many have heard of his grace-filled and tremendously fruitful mission in Japan, but little has appeared in print until now. Includes about 60 photographs, many never before published. This publication brings together, for the first time, a collection of writings introducing the reader to the culture St. Nikolai encountered in a Japan that was just opening up again to the world around it. Articles from several scholars and believers in japan give new insight into his life and the struggles he faced as he tirelessly fullfilled the call of the Gospel. We see the saint mirrored in his diaries as well as in the lives of his disciples who were forever changed by their dicovery of Orthodox Christianity through his mission.
