Publisher's Description

"Step by step, I retreated from God and went forth to meet the world, the flesh, and the devil. . . . I’d join the devil himself. . . . There is no doubt that I traveled with him at my side and that he extorted a great price for his company."

This is how Bella Dodd (1904–69) described her long battle with atheistic communism, an ideology her Church calls a "satanic scourge." She later described it as a "school of darkness," a school of "hate," a school for which she was a master organizer and infiltrator of every organization—public, private, and even ecclesiastical.

Bella Dodd courageously left the Communist Party and its diabolical machinations. Her former communist affiliates then smeared her with eerily familiar epithets to modern ears, dubbing her everything from a "fascist" to a "racist." Some things never change.

One thing that changed, however, was Bella Dodd. The man who helped pull her from the pit? A priest. A priest by the name of Fulton Sheen. Bella Dodd’s story thereafter changed dramatically from one of seduction by the devil to redemption through Christ. She dedicated the remainder of her life to a special penance: warning the world of the evil of communism and its plans .

In the battle between the devil and Bella Dodd, Bella and her Church won. At long last, here is her inspiring story.

Editorial Reviews

 "From Communism to Catholicism, Bella Dodd lived an incredible life. Mary Nicholas and Paul Kengor bring to life her walk from the dark side to the sunny path of faith in a Cold War saga of redemption."
—John Gizzi, White House Correspondent, Newsmax

 
"Bella Dodd is a seminal Cold War figure, a brave woman who fearlessly battled atheistic communism. She should not be forgotten. Finally, thanks to this work, she won’t be."
—Sebastian Gorka, Ph.D., Newsmax Host and former Deputy Assistant and Strategist to the President 
 
"There is nothing hidden that will not come to light, as Bella Dodd proved after her reversion to the Catholic Church by revealing the extent of the communist conspiracy that she had helped to spread. Mary Nicholas and Paul Kengor have performed a great service by shining a new and delightful light on this remarkable woman."
 —Michael Knowles, The Daily Wire

 
"The Devil and Bella Dodd is a powerful book about what happens when pernicious ideas grip a soul—and what happens when grace snatches her back."
 —Julia Meloni, Author of The St. Gallen Mafia
 
"I couldn’t put this book down. It seems timelier than ever as socialism continues to spread. But more than anything, it is a beautiful testament to the peace and love offered not by ideologies but by Christ and His Church."
—Carrie Gress, Author of The Anti-Mary Exposed
