Book Details

Winner of the Tanizaki Prize. Published in 1967 in Japan to huge controversy, Silence is Shusaku Endo’s most highly acclaimed novel and a classic of its genre. Father Rodrigues is an idealistic Portuguese Jesuit priest who, in the 1640s, sets sail for Japan on a determined mission to help the brutally oppressed Japanese Christians. He must also discover the truth behind unthinkable rumours that his famous teacher Ferreira has renounced his faith. Once faced with the realities of religious persecution Rodrigues himself is forced to make an impossible choice: whether to abandon his flock or his God. As empathetic as it is powerful, Silence is an astonishing exploration of faith and suffering and an award-winning classic. Now a major film directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Liam Neeson, Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield
