.- Just three weeks into the publication of “Render Unto Caesar,” Archbishop Charles Chaput’s new book has made the New York Times Best Seller list. The archbishop’s book is currently one place ahead of “Promises to Keep,” written by Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden.

“Render Unto Caesar” is currently number 27 on the New York Times Nonfiction Best Sellers List for the week of September 14, outpacing Sen. Biden’s book by one spot. During the week of August 29, “Render Unto Caesar” was the 24th best selling nonfiction book and the number five best selling hardcover nonfiction book published by Random House, according to the company’s website.

In “Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life,” the Archbishop of Denver explains that Catholics must bring their convictions into the voting booth, and argues that Catholics’ citizenship must be grounded in religious belief as a moral duty, a gift to American life.

The archbishop urges Catholics to strengthen their voices on abortion, the death penalty, immigration, poverty and other social justice issues.

His book reaffirms the close link between personal Catholic faith and public action and also defends the right of religious believers to challenge secular authority in the name of human dignity. “In this sense, the Catholic church cannot stay, has never stayed, and never will stay out of politics,” he writes.

“Render Unto Caesar” can be ordered on Amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/Render-Unto-Caesar-Catholic-Political/dp/0385522282/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1215959015&sr=8-1
