Book Summary

Originally entitled "Gospel Readings and Misreadings", this book sets out to explain the words of Jesus as delivered in the course of his public life, from his Sermon on the Mount to his last word from the cross on Calvary, and to show how each word has to be understood, as opposed to the many misunderstandings common in today’s world. So it bears the sub-title, "Dialogue with the Japanese".

Author Profile

Peter Milward was born in London on October 12, 1925, and educated at Wimbledon College (a Jesuit high school). He entered the Society of Jesus in 1943, and after various studies he went on to specialize in the Classics and English at Oxford University. He came to Japan in 1954 and after further studies was ordained priest in 1960. From 1962 onwards he has taught English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo. In addition to founding the Renaissance Institute, the Hopkins Society of Japan and the Chesterton Society of Japan, he has published some 400 books, mostly as textbooks for Japanese students, many of them translated into Japanese, but now most of them out of print. Several of his books, especially those on the drama of Shakespeare and the poetry of Hopkins, have been published in England and America. Even in retirement he is still teaching and writing, as he enters his 88th year (or beiju).
