Shiro Kano: Faithfulness at Any Price by Merritt Nielson
Originally told in 1948 by Alice Spangenberg, the story of Shiro Kano is a compelling call to faithfulness at any price. It is a timely reminder that in every generation, God needs men and women who will follow His call and who will faithfully render their service for the sake of the many who do not yet know Christ.
Not all stories turn out as we would expect or hope. But God is the Author and Finisher of faith, and the end of this story is not yet fully known. This book should draw a simple prayer: “Lord, give me such a faith in and for my generation.”
