Writings of Nichiren Shonin: Volume 4: Faith and Practice
Author: Nichiren Shonin; Editor: Hori, Kyotsu; Sakashita, Jay;
This volume, the twelfth project of the English Translation Committee of the Nichiren-shû; Overseas Propagation Promotion Association (NOPPA), constitutes all twenty-seven writings of Buddhist reformer Nichiren Shônin (1222–1282) included in the Nichiren Shônin Zenshû (Complete Writings of Nichiren Shônin), Volume IV: Faith and Practice, published in Tokyo in 1993. The Nichiren Shônin Zenshû is a modern Japanese version of Nichiren’s original writings, translated and edited with annotations by modern scholars of Nichiren Buddhism.

Despite its all-inclusive titles, the Zenshû is highly selective in that it takes into account only writings considered bibliographically authentic (i.e., attested to by original manuscripts). Among such texts, those included in the Shôwa Teihon Nichiren Shônin Ibun (Writings of Nichiren Shônin Standardized in the Shôwa Period), compiled by the Risshô Daigaku Nichiren Kyôgaku Kenkyû-jo (Center for the Study of Nichiren Buddhism), are considered the most authoritative, and they provide the basic texts for this volume.
