Historical Who is Who

UCHIMURA, Kanzo

1861 - 1930
Japan
RELIGION

 

Japanese Protestant leader. From Samurai family background, but exposed to Christian thinking whilst at agricultural college in Japan and later at Amherst in the US. He was impatient with denominational bureaucracies in Christianity and led the creation of the Mukyokai (Non-Church) movement emphasising shared leadership and Bible study. In an imperially-minded setting he showed in both his teaching and writing how it was possible to be both patriotic and pacifist.
