How did the churches respond to National Socialism? Were they victims of th regime, persecuted by a government that sought here also a final solution, the elimination of Christianity? Or did improtant elements within the churches seek accommodation? This book is a broad overview of the Protestant and Cathlolic churches, with attention to the institutional churches, the theological faculties, and individual theologians, such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Joseph Lortz. Included are assessments of the German Christian movement, the Confessing church, the German Catholic Church, the Vatican, and the free churches. Various responses--villians, heroes, equivocators--are highlighted.

Denying the HolocaustDenying the Holocaust

The denial of the Holocaust has no more credibility than the assertion that the earth is flat. Yet there are those who insist that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy. Forty years ago, such notions were the province of pseudohistorians who argued that Hitler never meant to kill the Jews, and that only a few hundred thousand died in the camps from disease; they also argued that the Allied bombings of Dresden and other cities were worse than any Nazi offense, and that the Germans were the "true victims" of World War II. Deborah Lipstadt shows how despite tens of thousands of living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence this irrational idea not only has continued to gain adherents but has become an international movement, with organized chapters, "independent" research centers, and official publications that promote a "revisionist" view of recent history.

This new greatly expanded version of Letters and Papers from Prison, while omitting nothing found in the earlier edition shifts the emphasis of earlier editions on Bonhoeffer's theological reflections to the private sphere of his life. Bonhoeffer's letters now appear in far greater detail, and show his daily concerns and the enormous warmth and humanity of the young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the "officer's plot." The book also contains hitherto inaccessible letters and legal papers referring to Bonhoeffer's trial.

Read a profile of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Hope Against Hope: Johann Baptist Metz & Elie Wiesel  Speak Out on the HolocaustHope Against Hope: Johann Baptist Metz & Elie Wiesel Speak Out on the Holocaust

( Available to ship on or about 10/29/14. )
Add To Cart
There are probably no two men of such stature who can speak to the Holocaust as Christian theologian Johann Baptist Metz, author of A Passion for God, and Jewish writer, Nobel laureate and human rights activist Elie Wiesel, author of Night. One was drafted into the German army at the age of fifteen; the other was interned at Auschwitz. Both came from upbringings of deep faith, only to have their lives broken by the horrors they witnessed during the war. Both share the sense that the Holocaust is a rift in history itself, after which nothing could ever be seen in the same way as before.
