What is the message of The Broken Leaf?
We can worship God in the everyday life of the world around us. God reveals himself and leads us in worship through the art and culture of every nation. Meditations in this book are a journey of discovery while showing the heart of Christian worship.
“God is not new to Japan. He was in Japan before the first missionary set foot here. So how can we see the God of the Bible clearly as he exists in this culture with all of its unique beauty? How can we see, hear, taste, smell, and touch God in a truly Japanese context?” The Broken Leaf
