Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Archbishop Charles J. Chaput has received widespread attention for his bold statements on everything from abortion to the war in Iraq. As the nation readies itself for the 2008 elections, he presents an invaluable roadmap for Catholics struggling with the competing claims on their loyalty to faith and country.

RENDER UNTO CAESAR redefines the relationship between personal morality and the public sphere. Strongly defending the right of religious people to express and act on their beliefs in the public square, Chaput urges Catholics to take an active part in national debates and work toward establishing a government based on America’s founding moral values rather than on party loyalties and political expediency.

Chaput stakes out a new political territory, blending a classically Christian reverence for life, including that of the unborn child, with a new urgency for serving the poor, fostering peace, and building the common good. In a style both engaging and vigorous, he expresses the frustration of many people who feel that their priorities have been ignored by both Republicans and Democrats, and shows why the dual commitment to faith and democracy is the key to revitalizing our nation’s highest ideals.

Synopsis:

For Catholics and other Christians who are at a loss when it comes to the link between Faith and Works, the Archbishop of Denver provides a sober yet passionate defense of a fundamental principle: all human rights begin with the fundamental right: to-life, beginning at conception. Failure of the Christian (indeed any moral person) to defend life from the beginning is an extraordinary offense, endangering the integrity of his/her soul. Over the past four decades, one of the two principal parties in the country has moved away from this principle, while a number of prominent members of the other party have also described themselves as both "Catholic" and "pro-choice". The Archbishop shows how it is IMPOSSIBLE to be both. The thesis of the book is more than an invitation -- it is a call to action by committed Catholics (and, implicitly, all Christians and moral people of good will) to challenge the leaders of their party to undertake a defense of the most vulnerable among us -- the unborn. And, this may mean voting against party, against union, against coworkers. Embrace life, both here and now and in the eternity to come!

Very well written, persuasive and provocative. The Catholic Archbishop of Denver has a reputation for clarity and candor. Both are on display here. This is a very good case for active religious engagement in America's public square, not just for Catholics, but for all religious believers. Recommended.
