Description

In This World of Pain and Suffering, God Often Seems Silent. But Light is yet Present in Darkness, and Silence Speaks with Hidden Beauty and Truth.
Shusaku Endo's novel Silence, first published in 1966, endures as one of the greatest works of twentieth-century Japanese literature. Its narrative of the persecution of Christians in seventeenth-century Japan raises uncomfortable questions about God and the ambiguity of faith in the midst of suffering and hostility.
Endo's Silence took visual artist Makoto Fujimura on a pilgrimage of grappling with the nature of art, the significance of pain, and his own cultural heritage. His artistic faith journey overlaps with Endo's as he uncovers deep layers of meaning in Japanese history and literature, expressed in art both past and present. He finds connections to how faith is lived amid trauma and glimpses of how the gospel is conveyed in Christ-hidden cultures.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Listening to narrator Ova Saopeng deliver contemporary artist and author Fujimura's reflections is an arduous task for the Western ear. The audiobook will make sense only to those who have read Shusaku Endo's novel--or seen the movie SILENCE--about the seventeenth-century persecution of Christians in Japan. With that background, the audiobook is a beautiful account of perseverance amid the greatest of trials. Without it, the listener may be lost throughout most of the audiobook. Regardless, the listener will find that the themes of hiddenness, ambiguity, and beauty resonate with present-day concerns about freedom of religion and the worldwide persecution of Christians.

        Starred review from March 14, 2016
        Fujimura (Culture Care), director of Fuller Seminary’s Brehm Center and recipient of the American Academy of Religion’s 2014 Religion and the Arts Award, unearths universal implications about faith, suffering, and art in this focused literary study of one novel, Shusaku Endo’s Silence. Much as post-WWII Nagasaki inspired Endo’s book about the persecution of Christians and apostate Portuguese Jesuit priests in shogunate-era Japan, the experience of surviving the 9/11 terrorist attacks compels Fujimura “to communicate about the mystery of Christ working in our Ground Zero journeys.” Endo and Fujimura, both Christians, experienced powerful encounters with fumi-e, beautiful 17th-century bronze or wooden images of Jesus on which Christians were ordered to walk, repeatedly, or suffer terrible torture and death. Stating “that all art responds to what is holy,” Fujimura analyzes Japan’s fumi-e culture, calling it “a culture of lament,” and asserts that “faith can include our failures, even multiple failures.” Stories of historical figures on which Endo based Silence, scriptural analysis, and a wide range of literary and artistic references from both Japanese and Western culture (including Martin Scorsese’s 2016 film adaptation of Silence) add rich, refracted layers to this carefully crafted, masterful book.
