His theological values were organically linked with his aspiration for living and practicing such evangelical ideas as prophetic existence, neighborly love, social justice, pacifism, patriotism, and internationalism in the sphere of public life. Uchimuras commitment to the interaction between religious thought and social life is apparent in his well-known epitaph: I for Japan- Japan for the World- the World for Christ- and All for God.In this interdisciplinary, multi-angled approach to Uchimura Kanzo, the contributors shed light on the inner logic, meanings, and modes of interaction between the religious and social thought observable in Kanzo.ContributorsAndrew E.
