Radical Disciple : Father Pfleger, St. Sabina Church, and the Fight for Social Justice (Reprint)
About this item
For over two decades, a white Catholic priest who pastors a black Chicago parish, Reverend Michael Pfleger, has never been far from the spotlight. His aggressive, innovative leadership has made St. Sabina one of the largest and most active black Catholic congregations in the country. At the same time Pfleger has been continually criticized as a trouble-making maverick and a publicity hound. This biography concentrates on Father Pfleger’s work at St. Sabina from his earliest days there and covers his activism, his work in the community, his battles with church leaders, and his strong relationship with his parishioners.Radical Disciple is the first examination of Reverend Pfleger and St. Sabina’s Church by a man who knew Father Pfleger for thirty-two years and was a pastor at St. Sabina’s Church during its transition in the late 1960s from an all-white parish to an all-black one.
