a song for nagasaki, 22 Mar 2012
this is the unforgetable story of a truly great man. Despite living through unimaginable horrors of many kinds, he never ceases to be so brave, so resourceful, so concerned for the welfare of others, so full of hope for the future, so profound in spirit. The background of his Japanese culture moulds so perfectly with his devout Catholic faith, that as a Christian from the western world the testimony of Dr. Tagai reminds me of Christ's words "I have not seen such faith, no, not in Israel." Certainly, both believers and non-believers can learn so many valuable lessons from this enthralling book!
