.- A new book promises to help U.S. Catholics understand the key issues of the next presidential election and make an informed choice at the voting booth Nov. 2.

“The Five Issues That Matter Most: Catholics and the Upcoming Election” quotes from official Church sources and explains “in no uncertain terms why some issues are more important than others, and why Catholics have a duty to respond to the call to stand up for life and confront the culture of death corrupting our society,” says a press release.

It was published by Catholic Outreach, the same publishers of “A Guide to the Passion: 100 Questions about The Passion of the Christ.”

Catholic Outreach employs the same easy-to-read question-and-answer format of its last book in tackling the five key questions for this election campaign.

Building on “Voters Guide for Serious Catholics,” which was published by Catholic Answers earlier this year, the new 96-page book addresses the issues of abortion, same-sex marriage, human cloning, euthanasia and embryonic stem-cell research.

It also seeks to answer questions such as: Why should life issues alone determine for whom we vote? Why should one's religious beliefs impact his or her voting decisions?

“The Five Issues That Matter Most” was authored by six leading Catholic commentators, including Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life; Fr. Tom Euteneuer of Human Life International; Mark Brumley of Ignatius Press; Kim Marshall of Generation Life; Fr. Tad Pacholczyk of the National Catholic Bioethics Center; and Matthew Pinto of Ascension Press.

The publishers encourage the use of these books in parishes, faith-based study groups and with family and friends.
