Shusaku Endo's novel Silence, first released in 1966, endures as one of many maximum works of twentieth-century eastern literature. Its narrative of the persecution of Christians in seventeenth-century Japan increases uncomfortable questions about God and the paradox of religion in the course of pain and hostility.

Endo's Silence took across the world popular visible artist Makoto Fujimura on a pilgrimage of grappling with the character of paintings, the importance of soreness and his personal cultural history. His creative religion trip overlaps with Endo's as he uncovers deep layers of which means in eastern historical past and literature, expressed in paintings either prior and current. He reveals connections to how religion is lived in modern contexts of trauma and glimpses of ways the gospel is conveyed in Christ-hidden cultures.

In this international of soreness and affliction, God usually turns out silent. Fujimura's reflections express that mild is but found in darkness, and that silence speaks with hidden attractiveness and truth.
