This chapter follows The World Tomorrow editor Kirby Page from his early career as an aspiring YMCA missionary world traveler with Sherwood Eddy to his vocation as an independent foreign policy publicist in the mid-1920s. It explores how Page's interests expanded from mere personal pacifism in 1917 to encompass a wider concern with American imperialism, immigration, and racial politics by the mid-1920s, a matrix of concerns he took to his editorial role at the journal. Page sought to correlate recent research into the historical Jesus with the problems of nationalism and imperialism in the American twentieth century, a project in which he was not alone, but of which he was arguably the major proponent of his time.

Keywords:   The World Tomorrow, Kirby Page, pacifism, American imperialism, American immigration, American racial politics, nationalism, Jesus Christ
