On Giants Shoulders
Bringing new life to Japan. The inspiring story of a lad from southeast London, who became a missionary in Japan and today is an authority on Japanese literature.
Against all the odds, Patrick became a missionary to Japan. This story shows the various ways in which God worked in his life, and through him for the people of Japan. An account originally written for his daughters to explain their background, this is a vital book about work in what is still a culture resistant to the gospel.
"The heroes and heroines of this story are the handful of Japanese believers who catch the vision of becoming a local church (my first tears); the struggling home church in Deptford supporting their missionaries with realism; and the McElligott daughters facing, with their parents, the cost of separation for secondary education (more tears). The book is worth reading for the insight it gives into the emotional cost for parents and children alike." (Michael Griffiths)
The printed book was first published by WEC Publications in 1991.
