Author Stephanie Block issues new book on Alinskyianism

Spero columnist Stephanie Block, who also edits Los Pequenos de Cristo newspaper, is due to speak about her research into the controversial Catholic Campaign for Human Development during a radio interview on November 19. Block has recently published "Change Agents: Alinskyian Organizing Among Religious Bodies, which is the fruit of more than a decade of research and writing. Alinskyian tactics and antecedents in the CCHD have been uncovered by Block in numerous articles in the past. Block is a regular at Spero News and is also a member of the Catholic Media Coalition.

Block follows the influence of radical leftists and progressives who function within religious communities to further their political aims. Saul Alinsky was an atheist who worked closely with elements of the Catholic Archdiocese in Chicago in the mid-20th century. His book "Rules for Radicals" has been denounced by various Christians and political moderates who point out the Machiavellian tone of Alinsky's doctrines.

Author Block will be interviewed on November 19 on Molly Smith's 'From the Median' AM talk show on Cincinnati's WHKW 1220 AM radio and WHKZ 1440 AM radio. See the website here for times of broadcast. Click here to read the first volume of her book. Further volumes will be available soon. Watch Spero News for updates. Volume II can be found here.



Spero News editor Martin Barillas is a former US diplomat, who also worked as a democracy advocate and election observer in Latin America. He is also a freelance translator.
