Title

Article "Kagawa and Christianity"

Description

This article describes the way that Japanese religious leader, Toyohiko Kagawa, was positively received by students at colleges all over the United States of America. Although Kagawa is Japanese, he is a Christian. Kagawa's visit to the United States was the most extensive lecture schedule a foreign visitor has ever been on in the States. The article suggests that the youth of the 1930's responded so positively to Kagawa because he was a "great teacher" who applied "religion to a program of social reform, world peace, and satisfying philosophy."
