In order for readers to truly understand Shogun Iemitsu: War and Romance in 17th Century Tokugawa Japan, it’s a good idea to learn about Zomber’s background.
Michael Zomber boasts a private collection of samurai swords and other antique weapons from various periods in Japan’s rich history. He has traveled all over the world in pursuit of some of the most unique samurai weapons that have been available for sale.

As a Christian, Zomber was also compelled to write a novel about his religion in the Far East. Jesus and the Samurai: The Shining Religion and the Samurai truly reveals Zomber’s passion for his faith and Japanese culture. This book traces the early history of Christianity in various parts of Asia including China, India and Japan. Jesus and the Samurai: The Shining Religion and the Samurai also talks about the ordeals that Christians had to face under a ruthless Japanese dictatorship that didn’t tolerate western religions.
