About the Edition

"The idea of putting Magisterial teaching in a beautiful display case while separating it from pastoral practice, which then could evolve along with circumstances, fashions, and passions, is a sort of heresy, a dangerous schizophrenic pathology. I therefore solemnly state that the Church in Africa is staunchly opposed to any rebellion against the teaching of Jesus and of the Magisterium. . . . The Church of Africa is committed in the name of the Lord Jesus to keeping unchanged the teaching of God and of the Church."
Robert Cardinal Sarah

In this fascinating autobiographical interview, one of the most prominent and outspoken Catholic Cardinals gives witness to his Christian faith and comments on many current controversial issues. The mission of the Church, the joy of the gospel, the heresy of activism , and the definition of marriage are among the topics he discusses with wisdom and eloquence.

Robert Cardinal Sarah grew up in Guinea, West Africa. Inspired by the missionary priests who made great sacrifices to bring the Faith to their remote village, his parents became Catholics. Robert discerned a call to the priesthood and entered the seminary at a young age, but due to the oppression of the Church by the government of Guinea, he continued his education outside of his homeland. He studied in France and nearby Senegal. Later he obtained a licentiate in theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, followed by a licentiate in Sacred Scripture at the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum of Jerusalem.

At the age of thirty-four he became the youngest Bishop in the Catholic Church when John Paul II appointed him the Archbishop of Conakry, Guinea, in 1979. His predecessor had been imprisoned by the Communist government for several years, and when Archbishop Sarah was targeted for assassination John Paul II called him to Rome to be Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. In 2010 Pope Benedict XVI named him Cardinal and appointed him Prefect of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum. Pope Francis made him Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in 2014.

  Our subject here is an important and inspiring book published earlier this year, God or Nothing. It resembles The Ratzinger Report, a record of conversations between a journalist and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI when the latter was still Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith. God or Nothing records conversations between a journalist, Nicholas Diat, and Robert Cardinal Sarah, for twenty-three. His book is certainly an important contribution to the New Evangelization which St. Pope John Paul II proclaimed. Anyone looking for answers on contemporary issues such as abortion, euthanasia, gender, homosexuality and poverty in the context of the Gospel, will find the correct and truthful answers in Sarah’s book God or Nothing.   In this interview, he discusses his new book God or Nothing, the scope of papal authority, and why authentic mercy depends on a “break” from evil, and repentance of sin. Thus, Hart reckons, correctly, that his book is a “thought experiment not a system in any modern sense” (). God Being Nothing consists of two prefaces, an overview, a postscript, and two appendices. The main portion contains three sections entitled “Theogony,” “Cosmogony,” and “Anthropogony” ().
