This chapter offers reflection on the author’s odyssey in search of Edwards’s legacies in Asia, a journey that started in Princeton with the discovery of a long-lost Japanese edition of Edwards’s sermons that was translated and edited by an erstwhile Edwards aficionado, Mamoru Iga. Through focusing on Iga’s work and life, the author provides a window onto how Edwards’s thought has been translated into a different cultural context, and how it continues to have an impact on the development of Asian Christianity today.
