"Father Paul Glynn tells the story of Takashi Nagai, a Scientist, Convert, and Survivor of the Atomic Bomb. When the Atomic Bomb was dropped on Nagasaki in 1945 it instantly killed tens of thousands of people, but among the survivors was Takashi Nagai, a pioneer in radiology research and a convert to the Catholic Faith. Living in the rubble of his ruined city, Nagai lived out the remainder of his life by bringing physical and spiritual healing to his war-weary people. A Song for Nagasaki tells the moving story of this extraordinary man beginning with his childhood. It reveals his journey of faith- from Shintoism to Atheism to Catholicism. Nagai lived in the historic Catholic district of the city-which became ground zero for the Atomic Bomb which killed his beloved wife. After this disaster, he threw himself into service to the countless victims of the bomb explosion, even though it meant deadly exposure to the radiation which would cause his own death. Nagai is revered by the Japanese people and considered a saint by the Christians there. Softcover, 267 pages." SNAGP
