"The Upside Down Church
in the 21st Century"

 The Epiphany Group Presents John Allen

What will it mean for the Church that Indonesia, Nigeria and Argentina are increasingly becoming the centers of intellectual and pastoral energy that France, Italy and Belgium once were? John Allen will share his insights into the global south, and examine what its ascendance means for Roman Catholicism on a global scale.
John L. Allen Jr. is, according to the London Tablet, the most authoritative Vatican writer in the English language. Since 1999, he has served as the prize-winning Vatican correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter and a CNN analyst on Vatican affairs. He also appears on National Public Radio.

Allen is the author of three books on Vatican affairs: Conclave: The Politics, Personalities and Process of the Next Papal Election; All the Popeís Men: The Inside Story of How the Vatican Really Thinks; and The Rise of Benedict XVI: The Inside Story of How the Pope Was Elected and Where He Will Take the Catholic Church. His most recent work is Opus Dei: An Objective Look behind the Myths and Reality of the Most Controversial Force in the Catholic Church. Allen is a graduate of the University of Kansas, with a masterís degree in religious studies.

Two of his NCR columns you may read talk about the Church in the south and ten mega-trends shaping the Church. You can read a review of Allen's lecture given recently at Loyola University.
