Opening English Pages
July, 2017 Kiichi Ichikawa
This internet site "Tenryo" was created to make gKiichi Ichikawa's collected works" on the New Testament available to those without the means to access his printed work. Because Kiichi Ichikawafs books were all written and published in Japanese, this web site was initially solely available to Japanese-speaking individuals. In the face of a growing demand emanating from English-speaking countries, the author has been planning to translate essential parts of this site into English.
The Japanese version of this site, however, contains the texts of all twenty-five books written by Kiichi Ichikawa, which amounts to over ten thousand printed pages. Translating these books into English, even some parts of them, would be too Herculean a task for the author who is approaching the age of 90; that task will therefore be left to a new generation of scholars. Instead, the author has decided to write, to the best of his English-writing abilities, a series of short evangelistic articles dedicated to the Gospel of Christ, faith and living in Christ. These articles will be uploaded semi-regularly in the English pages of this web sites, to the pace of one to two articles a month, possibly.
