What made the experience of listening to Silence and Beauty the most enjoyable?
I enjoy that Makoto fujimura explored doubt and faith in a healthy way. As often times those two things are at enmity in our minds. Christianity grounded in reality. It was very therapeutic.
What other book might you compare Silence and Beauty to and why?
I wouldn't compare this to anything I've ever read.

A fascinating book filled with deep relections! It isn’t the usual story that proceeds linearly with a monotonic theme. Fujimura moves around discussing Endo and his book, Silence, the history behind it, and Scorsese’s movie which took some 20 years to produce. His reflections on Japanese culture and how it has been shaped by the 17th century persecution of Christians, WWII, and Western materialism, are profoundly helpful in understanding this unique island nation. Read Fujimura’s book; stay with him as he wanders though many subjects. You will be rewarded like enjoying a work of modern art.
