In the process I encountered a fraud, which I believe to be unparalleled in the whole course of human history.
This book contains part of the results of my investigation.
My objective is not to cause a sensation but to fulfil my human duty.
I hope my work can help people who seek wholeheartedly a way to God, a way they have not been able to find through religions. I also hope it can move the hearts of others, who have been disappointed by the teaching, the officers and the congregation of the Church, and bring them back to God.
My autobiography, stories from my life experience as a zealous Christian, and some observations on Christianity, gained over seventy years, are also included in the study.
by Tracy J. Prince (Goodreads Author)
"Tracy Prince's book brings an impressive set of voices into dialogue on the complexity of community-building and national identity--analyzing important aspects of British culture which are not fully represented in anthologies or literary histories."
--R. Victoria Arana, Professor of English, Howard University
"Writing with great lucidity and welcome originality, Tracy J. Prince explores how an increasingly multicultural Britain defines itself, and is defined, through literature and a literary establishment still dominated by an Anglo-English elite."
--Tamar Heller, Associate Professor of English & Comparative Literature, University of Cincinnati
"It is precisely in its analysis of this 'Anglo centeredness' and its sensitive treatment of the many other voices that comprise modern British writing that this book's strength lies. We have no hesitation in recommending 'Culture Wars in British Literature' to anyone with an interest in the complexities of modern British culture and in particular the difficulty of establishing a separate and distinct Anglo-Welsh identity within the mainstream."
--Ceri Shaw, AmeriCymru's "Welsh Magazine"

A Catholic convert himself, Yamane goes inside the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) to understand why and how individuals become Catholic in contemporary America.
Millions of individuals have been brought into the church through the RCIA process, making it one of the most significant and successful reforms of the Second Vatican Council. This is the first book-length treatment of this important subject.
