Confusion dominates too many discussions of the churches in Nazi Germany. Germany was not a Christian country but had been deeply influenced by powerful philosophical and scientific forces of secularism for over a century before 1933. The churches themselves were often mere facades of theological liberalism that denied the fundamentals of the faith in very religious-sounding language.
Hitler's combination of religious and secular rhetoric has led to diverse interpretations of his fundamental orientation. How can talk about some higher power harmonize with his concept of life as a brutal and amoral struggle for survival?
This third short book in a series shows that hatred against the Jews in the name of Christ is contrary to many plain teachings, and never in any circumstances justifiable. Yet, it was very different in motive and in results from the secular racial antisemitism that drove the Nazis and led to the Holocaust.
Having demonstrated in a previous ebook that the New Testament in no sense demonizes Jews, [The New Testament and the Jews], author Joseph Keysor here examines the problem of antisemitism itself. From a biblical point of view, anti-Judaism in all of its manifestations is ultimately traceable to human sin.
An expert on Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible, author Joseph Keysor seeks to counter the persistent accusation that Christians and Christianity are to blame for anti-semitism and the Holocaust in particular.
In this updated edition, author Joseph Keysor addresses the growing trend among secularists to label Hitler as a Christian and therefore attribute the atrocities of the second world war to the Christian religion. Keysor does not settle for simply contrasting the Nazis' behavior with the Biblical record.
Author Joseph Keysor previously demonstrated that Hitler and the Nazis were not acting on Christian principles and exposed the true basis for destructive actions. Now he comes to the defense of Martin Luther, a person that many people try to blame for Hitler's anti-semitism. Keysor is not Lutheran, making his analysis all the more decisive.
