On August 12, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver will release his latest book, which focuses on a question of undeniable importance for Catholics in the U.S. but also around the world: What is the role of faith in the public square? Fr. Robert Imbelli S.J., a Boston College assistant professor of Theology, gives readers an insightful and well-written review of the archbishop’s book, which will be published in L’Osservatore Romano.

By Fr. Robert Imbelli S.J.

This new book by the Archbishop of Denver, Colorado, though addressed primarily to his fellow Catholics, will also serve to foster a much-needed conversation both within and outside the Church. Moreover, it appears at a particularly significant time: the eve of one of the most important presidential elections in recent American history.

Chaput writes as persuasively as he speaks. His style is easy to read and follow, but the material he covers is very rich, and he leaves you thinking. This is a really good book on the nature of genuine Catholic identity and the reasons we urgently need to bring our faith into our political choices. Highly recommended.
