Product Description

Product Description

Six million Jews...dead. The monstrosity of Adolph Hitler's 'Third Reich'
remains a stunning chapter in the pages of history. Although the power by which
he hypnotized an entire nation is legendary, one question in particular begs an
answer: Where was the church of Christ? Seduced by the Satanic majesty of 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 Adolph
Hitler implemented his 'Final Solution' to his Jewish problem. How did this happen?
In Hitler's Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer examines the lessons that may be learned
from studying the deception of the church: the dangers of confusing "church and
state," how the church lost its focus, the role of God in human tragedy, the parameters
of Satan's freedom, the truth behind Hitler's hatred of the Jews, the faithfulness
of God to His people who suffer for Him, the comparisons between Hitler's rise and
the coming reign of the Antichrist, and America's hidden cross-her dangerous trends.
Hitler's Cross is the story of a nation whose church forgot its primary
call and discovered its failure too late.

Synopsis

Examines how the Church of Germany failed in its Christian focus by supporting Hiltler's "final solution" to the Jews.

5.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten story. 22 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Einstein paid homage to the few believing Christians left in Germany by the time Hitler came to power. Hitler's Cross is the story of the Confessing Church, the remnant who stood against Hitler in the darkening days before WWII. It is also the story of a corrupted and humanistic institutional church that was all too ready to throw out the Cross of Christ for Hitler's "Twisted Cross" and earthly message of Aryan "salvation".

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing title 10 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When salt looses its flavor, it is of no use at all. When the Christian church looses its identity (Christ) it becomes an amoral institution with no conviction. Why would people who considered themselves to be good Christians rally behind Hitler? This book explains the true identity of Hitler and the errors of the church. Could it happen again? Unfortunately, yes, and for the same reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars HItler's Cross 16 Jun 2000
By Jim W. Blain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Hitler's Cross was very informative and a must read for any serious WWII historian. It answers many questions regarding the role of the church during a most crucial time in German history . It moves fast and reads very well . The author is able to effectively link up many political and religious facts in a most interesting way . It gave me a real appreciation for Democracy and the value of freedom in this country. It also is reflective as to the account of Hitler's strategy and method in taking over Germany , makes one wonder if it could happen again , if conditions were right . This book is a definite asset and companion to Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich and How Then Shall We Live by Francis Schaffer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corruption of Religion 8 Aug 2008
By Ron Braithwaite - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've given 'Hitler's Cross' 5 stars even though I am not a Christian and don't hold with many of the author's theological opinions. Still, this is a book worth reading and, although I am a student of Holocaust studies, this book illuminates Naziism in a new light.

The book is well researched and readable. It demonstrates the intelligent and infinitely malign calculation of Hitler as he set about remolding Germany in his own image. The book discusses, at length, Hitler's largely successful corruption of religion, all with the singleminded purposes of producing the perfect Nazi man and woman--people devoid of Judeo-Christian morality, perfect weapons in the strengthening and perfection of the National Socialist State.

The book also draws parallels with the secularization of the Greater Reich and the progressive secularization of America and the West. I'm not religious but I agree with the author on this point. A secularized nation is a nation with weakened values. People, without a solid moral framework, are a people adrift, capable of personal or state-inspired evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Profoundly Disturbing 6 Aug 2002
By Gregory Nyman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Erwin Lutzer has taken the lid off Nazi Germany and the life of Hitler, to show an immense knowledge and understanding of what took place prior to the Nazi's rise, as well as how it continued to the very end. Not only that, he writes with compassion and passion about where the Church of Germany stood in relation to Hitler, and how eventually, with the exception of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Niemoller and a small handful of believers, the Church of Jesus Christ in Germany fell into the hands of the Fuhrer. Lutzer warns that the Church in the United States faces similar challenges and he shows some similarities between the two nations, and warns that we, too, in this country have to guard against unchecked nationalism and embracing one particular party over another because of the words of the particular leaders. Just because peace, prosperity, and the like is preached and promised, doesn't amount to squat, the Mr. Lutzer gives a stern admonition to those who might believe that our current political system is one which has been sanctioned by God. It was clear that the Nazi's believed that to be the case, and many sincere believers in Germany who believed they were doing God's work. Unfortunately, history showed them to be in error. Highly disturbing and sobering reading. And incredibly and magnificently recommended!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will the Church React To Antichrist Like It Did To Hitler ? 29 Aug 2002
By M. D Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My own studies and readings of Biblical prophecy over the years, together with my interest in the future rise of the Antichrist, gave rise to personal concerns/fears over the alarming similarities in the rise and power of Adolf Hitler and that pertaining to the future world ruler known in Biblical circles as the Antichrist.
The agendas of both persons being remarkably similar, with their rise being in large part due to the economic situation of their times, the apathy of the world at large, and the inactivity of the Christian church. Not to mention the shared hatred and intent towards the Jewish people.
I never dared discuss these thoughts with anyone until I read this book. Here to my amazement I discovered that Erwin Lutzer appears to be of a like mind.
With this in mind, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is a must, must read. We all need to be aware of the facts so ably illustrated here. The book is so easy to read and very well written.
Before reading this book, my knowlege of the Third Reich was somewhat limited, and I had no idea as to the severe depths of Satanism and the occult generally that Hitler and his entourage had delved into.
I used to think that history could not repeat itself but now I am not so sure.
The immense increase of anti-Semitism and the manner in which the public is so easily deluded by the false re-writing/revisionism of history relating to the Jewish people and the Middle East; the ease in which complacent public opinion is manipulated, swayed and distorted by the modern media; the apparent ignorance of vast elements within the 'Church' as to what is going on around them....these factors are far too similar to what happened prior to and during the rise of Hitler.
The time is right and is just waiting for the right person and circumstances for one other to take his place. If you are unsure, then read this book and study the facts for yourself. Don't just take my word for it.
Thanks for listening.
