Describes the success of Yamamuro (1872-1940) in transforming the Salvation Army from obscurity to national recognition in the 12 years after its arrival in Japan in 1895. Demonstrates how he translated the social-holiness evangelism of the Army into native cultural idiom that connected with the spirit of Japanese nationalism.
