The media outlet further notes that Amazon and a number of other publications have acknowledged the book's success.

It does, indeed, have a #1 ranking on Amazon. The online retailer designates it as the top-selling book in its Christian Social Issues category.

USA Today classifies the book as Current Issues, and it falls in the #74 spot on that list.
