    Book details


While the Catholic Church is languishing in much of the West, by contrast it flourishes across Africa. Despite this, most African Church leaders remain unknown in the West, even among better informed Catholics.Sally Ninham's timely book remedies this via her in-depth interviews with a cross section of Africa's senior Catholic churchmen. Their stories provide first-hand insights into the religious, political, social and economic situations in their countries.Some of these leaders have played key roles in the midst of political turmoil, civil wars, rampant corruption and extreme poverty.Dr Ninham, who travelled around Africa for the interviews, believes some "have perhaps already earned the right to stand alongside such Western heroes as Martin Luther King, Franklin Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. They are men who have committed their lives to justice, to freedom and to humanity without pausing for breath."

Review Text

  • By reader on 3 March 2014

    I wanted to find out about the ten African cardinals and I did, more or less. So it is worth it for that, but just about. On the negative side, there is far too much in this book about the author herself, her approach, her background, the process behind the interviews. The book should have a subtitle: 'One woman's journey' or something. While her journey is quite intelligent and authentic, it was of no interest to me. In her interviews, she is sympathetic to the Cardinals but from the perspective of a white feminist non-catholic who really is just only beginning to learn about the faith and about Africa. I found her questions, while not at all hostile, a bit superficial at times. Interesting nuggets when you cut through the fluff.
