Description

Francis Xavier s arrival in Japan in 1549 initiated an approach to mission that distinguished the Jesuits from all other Europeans for the next two hundred years.

In a highly readable and stylishly written book, Andrew Ross shows how the Jesuits' sensitivity to Japanese and Chinese culture contradicted the imperialism of the Spanish and the Portuguese, and allowed the possibility of dialogue between East and West.

"This book is informative, well written, and characterized by judicious insights...a splendid volume."---Missiology

"A Vision Betrayed is well written and gives a full picture of the history of the two Jesuit missions of Japan and China...Students as well as scholars will find it an instructive and interesting review of an important movement..."---America

"In A Vision Betrayed Andrew Ross gives us the first comprehensive account of the Jesuits' ventures in Japan and China in the early modern era...He tells the story with engaging detail, but so that the broad issues, still with us today, are never lost from view."---John W. O'Malley, S.J.

Andrew C. Ross, Honorary Fellow in the School of Theology at the University of Edinburgh, is also the author of the much acclaimed David Livingstone: Mission and Empire.
