Archbishop Chaput to Release Book on Catholic Faith and Voting
(Hat tip: Opinionated Catholic)
Margaret Cabaniss writes at InsideCatholic:
Archbishop Chaput of Denver has long been a clear and reasoned voice when it comes to the intersection of faith and politics. Now it appears that he will be releasing a book next month on just that subject, titled Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life, well in time for November's election...
We've had voting guides before, of course, but this sounds as if it will go well beyond a simple checklist of items Catholics must (or must not) vote for, and rather delve into an understanding of why they should do so, and why it is necessary and proper for Catholics to bring their faith into the political sphere in the first place.
