Description taken from Audio-Visual Research Guide (published nine editions, 1949-1972) of the National Council of Churches. Using his scrapbook of pictures, a missionary describes the work of the denomination in Japan. In churches, schools, and hospitals, the missionaries work with the Japanese to proclaim the total Christian message. Although specific EUB projects are visualized, the work illustrated is largely free from denominational labelling. There is a good overall view of the culture and religions of Japan; and the emphasis on working with, rather than for, the indigenous people is to be commended. Photography is excellent, the script is good. For instruction, promotion, and motivation of junior highs through adults, it is highly recommended for the producing denomination, recommended for other denominations.
