Volume 2 of 'Change Agents' now on-line

'Change Agents' by Stephanie Block chronicles the influence of leftist Alinskyian agents in U.S. religious institutions.

Stephanie Block, author and columnist at Spero News, has released the second volume of her book. The Change Agents: Alinskyian Organizing Among Religious Bodies examines the alliance of activists from various faiths with political operatives trained in Alinskyian techniques of community organization and political action.

Block has long chronicled the inroads that the leftist philosophy hatched by Saul Alinsky in Chicago and spread by his students throughout the U.S.  Alinsky, an atheist, saw the possibilities of turning religious institutions to the purposes of political and social change as envisioned by American leftists. His book, Rules for Radicals, is a virtual bible of leftist political organization. Cadres of Alinsky-trained activists and community organizers were especially active in Chicago, where it was that they formed an alliance with elements of the Catholic hierarchy in the Windy City.

An investigative journalist and writer, Block is a frequent contributor to Spero News and is the editor of the New Mexico-based Los Pequenos newspaper. She has already released one volume of her new book that is available here. There are four volumes planned and are available exclusively at Spero for downloading as .pdf files. Volumes III and Volume IV will be released in 2013.

Volume II of Change Agents is available here.

Volum I of Change Agents is available here.
