Dramatized audio production with a full cast of characters and exciting sound effects!

Time travel with 15 year old Michael Brogan and relive the history of Japanese Catholics: the twenty-six martyrs who were crucified on Holy Martyrs' Hill in 1638; 230 years of persecution; the bravery and fortitude of the hidden Christians to keep the Faith alive even though underground; St. Maximilian Kolbe's amazing work in Japan; the atomic bombing of Nagasaki - the Catholic heart of Japan (in fact, ground zero was merely blocks from the largest Catholic Church in all of Asia); the persecution of Japanese-Americans during WWII; the most decorated unit of the US Army during WWII (a Japanese-American only unit fighting in Europe); and so much more.

Children will find Michael's time travel and situation both exciting and fascinating, whereas adults will be touched by the poignant lessons that he learns through trials and suffering and by his growth in appreciation of the Faith of his ancestors. A great blend of history, drama and humor - this production is for everyone.

Based upon the novel The Samurai and the Tea by Cathy Brueggemann-Beil (also available from Angelus Press).
