Introduction to 2012 Edition -- Waiting for Hitler -- God and Hitler : Who Was in Charge? -- The Religion of the Third Reich : Then and Now -- The Anti-Semitism of the Third Reich -- The Church Is Deceived -- The Church Is Divided -- The Church Is Dismembered -- Heroism in the Third Reich -- The Cost of Discipleship in the Third Reich -- America's Own Hidden Cross.
The power by which Hitler hypnotized an entire nation is legendary, but one question in particular begs an answer: Where was the church of Christ? Seduced by the Fuhrer, church leaders throughout Germany allowed the Swastika a prominent place alongside the Christian cross in their sanctuaries. Nationalistic pride replaced the call of God to purity, and with few exceptions, the German church looked away while Hitler implemented the 'final solution' to his Jewish problem. Lutzer examines the lessons that may be learned from the dangers of confusing 'church and state.'
