In Japan the Crickets Cry
Full Product Description
Once the Second World War had finished, the China Inland Mission began a search for young men who were open to moving to Japan. Steve finished training and initiated his lifelong love of Japan. During the early years in Japan, Steve encountered difficulties with the country's culture: one where suicide was considered honorable and to be foreign was to be forever alien.
With God's supervision and support, Steve managed to bring many people to Christ amongst a very resistant culture. "In Japan the Crickets Cry" showcases the miracles that Steve encountered during his amazing journey.
"In Japan the Crickets Cry," is a profoundly human missionary biography and will inspire readers with its story of how the Grace of God has worked in the life of Steve Metcalf.
In Japan the Crickets Cry by Ronald Clements; Steve Metcalf was published by Lion Hudson in August 2010 and is our 17153rd best seller. The ISBN for In Japan the Crickets Cry is 9781854249708.

In Japan the Crickets CryMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is an absolutely astounding book that deals with some quite amazing issues such as the horror of war and being a prisoner, the journey of forgiveness, the love of a culture and finally the acceptance of Christ. This is one man's story, that man being Steve Metcalfe, and yet it is more than that, it is the story of a time and a culture that affected many and changed most. It is set out in small chapters, headed with Japanese titles and English translations, which makes it a quick and easy read, though some of what is covered in those chapters is not always easy to read. Certainly any one with an interest in the war and particularly Japan would be amiss not to read it - however it is also good to read for anyone else as it really does deal with the journey of a missionary as well, and the acceptance and growth that comes with accepting ones call and building on forgiveness - a lesson we all can learn from.
