LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR: TOYOHIKO KAGAWA: JAPAN’S APOSTLE OF LOVE

Thursday 18 October: 12:30pm - 1:30pm

Jubilee Centre, St Andrews House, Jubilee Lounge, 59 St Andrews Street, CB2 3BZ

Toyohiko Kagawa (1888-1960) was a Christian pacifist, social reformer, and labour activist from Japan. A man of extraordinary learning, passion and impact, he authored over 150 books, both fiction and non-fiction (many of which haven't been translated into English). He was nominated for the Nobel Prize five times, twice in Literature and three times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This talk explores three aspects of Kagawa’s writings and life-work: The cooperative movement in Japan as a response to the extremes of capitalism, Christian pacifism as a response to the military-industrial complex and his unique scientific mysticism as a response to the environmental crisis.
