The Samurai – Shusaku Endo

In the 17th century, the first Japanese ever to set foot in Europe travel to Rome on a diplomatic mission. All are baptised, but upon returning to Japan they discover that the Shoguns no longer wish to forge links with the West, nor will they tolerate the Christian religion. The Samurai who have until now reviled their adoptive religion, begin to find it may be all that is left for them. The events in this story actually took place. Unabridged. Read by David Holt.
