My Take
You can't tell the history of Canada without telling the history of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). This book, vol.3 in the "Jesuit History Series", discusses Jesuit spirituality, formation, education and social action, as Jesuit communities took root throughout the 20th century in Montreal, Guelph, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, St. John's, etc. Their prophetic voice on the ecological crisis is particularly intriguing.
