Makoto Fujimura ’83 Garners Award for New Book

Makoto Fujimura ’83, a graduate of Bucknell University, recently received the 2016 Aldersgate Prize from the John Wesley Honors College at Indiana Wesleyan University for his new book Silence and Beauty: Hidden Faith Born of Suffering. The Aldersgate Prize “celebrates the outstanding achievement of an author whose scholarly inquiry challenges reductionistic trends in academia by yielding a broad, integrative analysis of life’s complexities, while shedding fresh light on ultimate questions that enliven historic Christian conceptions of human flourishing.”

Fujimura holds a bachelor’s degree in animal behavior and art & art history from Bucknell, as well as a master’s degree from Tokyo National University of Art & Music. His wife, Judith Fujimura ’83, is also a Bucknell graduate.
