Format: Paperback
Finally, a book that tells the truth about Nazis and Christianity! Mr. Walker does not really attack prople today who try to make it sound like the Nazis were Christians, but his book makes the case so strongly that no one who reads it can come away thinking anything but that Nazis hated Christians and that Christians were the only people who fought against the Nazis inside Nazi Germany and that anyone today who thinks different just does not know what he or she is talking about. Walker does not talk about religion much at all. He does not even say whether he is a Christian or not. He just talks about the plain facts of history.

Format: Paperback
This is a short book (95 pages, 5 of which are Bibliography). But it is full of extremely useful and interesting quotes and points. I had wondered how a "Christian" nation could blindly follow after such a charismatic leader but reading through this book really helped me understand that the Nazis were intent on destroying Christianity (& the Jews) and that Germany had been secular for a long time before the Nazis came to power. Indeed, there are many parallels for our time today.

I had wondered about the Catholic Church's dealings with the Nazis and this book also helped me understand more of what actually went on.

If anyone can reach Mr Walker - on P. 55 the second-last sentence of the first paragraph doesn't read properly - "The voice of conscience which Christian education would give was incompatible with Christianity."

Really recommend this book.

Like most of us, you have probably read and heard multiple ideas about Hitler and his fellow Nazis' view of Christianity. A friend of mine recently returned from the Holocaust Museum in shock, telling me that they were blaming the Holocaust on the Christians! I have heard some say that Hitler claimed to be a Christian. Certainly there is a lot of misinformation.

In Swastika against the Cross, Bruce Walker goes back to historical sources of the 30's and 40's to expose the real Nazi attitude toward Christianity. What is obvious after reading this book is that Hitler was not by any measure a Christian. Not that you needed this book to tell you that he wasn't one; his actions speak for themselves. But since we live in a time when every assumption is challenged, Walker clears up any confusion over the Fuhrer's worldview. "I am heathen to the bone," (p. 26) said Hitler. "Whether it's the Old Testament or the New, or simply the sayings of Jesus ... it's all the same Jewish swindle ... We are not out against the hundred and one kinds of Christianity, but against Christianity itself." (p. 18)

Hitler's vague references to providence and God are just political bones he threw at the masses to imply he was somehow wedded to God.

Hitler was biding his time. Gene Veith in his book on Modern Fascism Modern Fascism: Liquidating the Judeo-Christian Worldview (Concordia Scholarship Today)sources Helmerich who quotes Hitler saying, "The war is going to be over. The last great task of our age will be to solve the church problem. It is only then that the nation will be wholly secure ... When I was young, my position was: Dynamite.
