One of Canada's most outspoken and respected advocates of internationalism during the early Cold War, John King Gordon had a remarkably eclectic professional life. Keith R. Fleming's biography of Gordon explores the man's many careers, from his start as a Manitoba clergyman in the 1920s to his work as a United Nations field officer in Korea, the Middle East, and the Congo. In "The World Is Our Parish," Fleming traces how Gordon's passion for social reform and humanitarianism led him to become a clergyman, a political activist, a journalist, a professor, and one of Canada's leading advocates of liberal internationalism in the years after World War Two. An exceptional biography of an extraordinary but little-known Canadian, "The World Is Our Parish" uses Gordon's professional and intellectual journey to reveal the confluence of liberal Christianity, social democracy, and internationalism in Canadian politics and thought.
