Kagawa's visit to this country has more clearly placed this great little Christian in the public eye. His books have been sold at his meetings and halls have been packed to hear him. A Grain of Wheat should sell to many customers who want a novel or story, a picture of Japan, of a typical boy, his work, home life, conversion, in love and through sorrow to a Faith that says confidently ""except a grain of wheat -- it abideth not."" This book is far more than a story of the co-operatives that Kagawa has planned, it is more convincing in its simplicity and beauty than most of the Chinese soil-fiction, so popular the last few years. Sell it as a Good Earth of Japan.
