FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Book Also Makes Publisher's Weekly, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestseller Lists
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 8, 2012) - The smash new book Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It's Too Late debuts March 11 at No. 5 on The New York Times Nonfiction Hardcover Bestseller List. The book from co-authors Jay Richards and James Robison premiered at No. 2 on the March 3 Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Books list; No. 7 on the March 5 Publishers Weekly bestseller list; and No. 33 on USA Today's March 1 Best-Selling Books List.
Ignatius Press has published an exclusive Catholic Edition of Indivisible that features a foreword by Ignatius Founder and Editor Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J. Buyers who order the Catholic edition directly from Ignatius Press also will receive a free bonus CD - Voting Guidelines for Catholics. On the CD, bestselling author, speaker and Catholic radio host Dave Durand concisely presents the guidelines produced by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to advise Catholics in voting.
Headlines continue to highlight growing government threats to religious freedom and the respect for human life. And it's these threats that make the 2012 general election so crucial. Throughout Indivisible, Richards and Robison make strong arguments that those who ignore moral and social issues in their efforts to strengthen American economic well-being and achieve success in foreign policy are misguided. They emphasize that principles serving as the foundation for sound social policy also support a vibrant economy and effective foreign policy.
Richards, a Catholic, and Robison, an Evangelical minister, argue that, instead of election cycles that find voters engaged for only a short time every few years, we must have a long-term perspective and strategy. "We shouldn't just ... get riled up for a few months, endorse the right policies and elect politicians who claim to support them," Richards and Robison write. Instead, they say, Americans must do a whole lot more.
Richards and Robison identify a number of principles that ought to be considered by Catholics and all value-minded Americans, including:
• Every human being has equal value and dignity.
• Marriage and the family are the fundamental social institutions.
• Judeo-Christian religious faith guards our freedom.
• We are meant to be free and responsible.
• Culture comes before politics.
"If we can etch these [principles] on our hearts and minds, seek a life of holiness and wisdom so we can discern them, teach them to our children, and apply them wisely in our personal lives and politics, then with God's help, we'll have most of what's needed to restore faith, family, and freedom in the twenty-first century."
