Part Two examines the complex relationship between Christianity and various dimensions of Japanese society, such as literature, politics, social welfare, education for women, and interaction with other religious traditions.

Part Three focuses on resources for the study of Christianity in Japan and provides a guide to archival collections, research institutes, and bibliographies.
