Overview

Veteran missionaries Larry and Lilian Driskill describe the many lessons and insights they learned as they adjusted to living in post-World War II Japan. Like the facets of a diamond the vignettes they write about throw light, not only on life in Japan, but on what is involved in adjusting to any culture, because although cultures differ in various parts of the world, the problems of adapting cross-culturally are similar.
