The New Resurrection

My Miraculous Story of Overcoming Illness and Death

An autobiographical account of an astonishing miracle experienced by author Ryuho Okawa in 2004. This event was adapted into the feature-length film Immortal Hero, released in Japan, the United States and Canada during the Fall of 2019.
