Makoto Fujimura awarded 2016 Aldersgate Prize for “Silence and Beauty”

INDIANA---Indiana Wesleyan University’s John Wesley Honors College (JWHC) is pleased to announce the 2016 Aldersgate Prize has been awarded to renowned bicultural artist Makoto Fujimura for his book, “Silence and Beauty: Hidden Faith Born of Suffering”.  Selected from nearly eighty nominations for this year’s prize, “Silence and Beauty” is a genre-transcending work that contemplates Japan’s earliest encounter with Christianity and the unique ways this legacy survived as a subtle, yet integral, part of the quiet beauty and generative ambiguity that pervades Japanese culture. Fujimura will accept the Aldersgate Prize on April 6, 2017 at the 2016 Celebration of Scholarship Luncheon at Indiana Wesleyan University. [link]
