Historical Theology


The present thesis is entitled: “A History of Missouri Synod Work in Japan." It gives a brief history of the work done by members of the Missouri Synod in Japan itself from September, 1948, to January, 1953. In order that this thesis might give a more complete picture, Chapter II will be devoted to an overview of the past activities of the Missouri Synod which led to the opening of the field in Japan in 1948. For a more detailed picture of those activities, the reader would do well to consult the B.D. thesis mentioned above.

This overview will be followed by a discussion of the survey trip to Japan made by Dr. O.H. Schmidt, Executive Secretary of the Board of Foreign Missions of The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod, including the arrival of the Rev. William J. Danker and the beginnings of his work.
