    The Day Is Now Far Spent
    by Cardinal Robert Sarah with Nicolas Diat

    In this powerful book by the acclaimed spiritual leader and best-selling writer, one he calls his "most important", he analyzes the profound spiritual, moral and political crisis in the contemporary world. He says that he "considers that the decadence of our time has all the faces of mortal peril."

    "At the root of the collapse of the West, there is a cultural identity crisis. The West no longer knows who it is, because it no longer knows and does not want to know who made it, who established it, as it was and as it is. Many countries today ignore their own history. This self-suffocation naturally leads to a decadence that opens the path to new, barbaric civilizations."

    In these words, Cardinal Sarah summarizes the theme of his book. His finding is simple: our world is on the brink of the abyss. Crisis of faith and of the Church, decline of the West, betrayal by its elites, moral relativism, endless globalism, unbridled capitalism, new ideologies, political exhaustion, movements inspired by Islamist totalitarianism.... The time has come for an unflinching diagnosis.

    While making clear the gravity of the crisis through which the West has gone, the Cardinal demonstrates that it is possible to avoid the hell of a world without God, a world without man, a world without hope.

    After the great international success of his first two books, God or Nothing and The Power of Silence, Cardinal Sarah offers a wide-ranging reflection on the crisis of the contemporary world while teaching many important spiritual lessons.

    Robert Cardinal Sarah was born in Guinea, West Africa. Made an Archbishop by Pope John Paul II and a Cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI, he was named the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments by Pope Francis in 2014. He is the author of God or Nothing.

    Nicolas Diat is a French journalist and author. His previous collaboration with Cardinal Sarah was on his book, God or Nothing.

    Praise for The Day Is Now Far Spent:

    "To call this book a tour de force would be an understatement. It's an astonishing work: clear, simple, visionary-and filled with hope."
    - Most Rev. Charles Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia

    "Cardinal Sarah is a latter-day Christian prophet, and this book is his most urgent wake-up call yet to a West sleepwalking toward a paganized dystopia."
    - Sohrab Ahmari, Author, From Fire, by Water: My Journey to the Catholic Faith

    "Cardinal Sarah is a bright, shining light. His faith illuminates the path to authentic Catholic reform."
    - George Weigel, Author, The Fragility of Order: Catholic Reflections Turbulent Times

    "May Cardinal Sarah's pastoral charity, expressed in an extraordinary manner in this book, lead many souls to 'cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light', to 'put on the Lord Jesus Christ'."
    - Raymond Cardinal Burke, Author, Hope for the World: To Unite All Things in Chris

    "Especially convincing are the cardinal's reflections on the Church's triumph, which can be achieved only if we follow Christ intellectually, spiritually, and morally, without excusing ourselves from a total self-gift to God."
    - Gerhard Cardinal Müller, Author, The Power of Truth: The Challenges to Catholic Doctrine and Morals Today

    "Realistic and hope filled, this is essential reading for believers living in a post-Christian world."
    - Most Rev. Samuel Aquila, Archbishop of Denver, Colorado
