The German Christian Movement in Print: Selected Texts from 1933-45 in Translation

One of the most troubling chapters in the history of Christianity involves the so-called German Christians, a movement that welcomed Hitler's ascent to power and sought to wed Christianity to National Socialism. In pamphlets, radio addresses, even liturgies, they articulated their desire to eradicate all traces of Judaism from Christianity, and their positions on Luther, the Old Testament, the church and the (Nazi) state, Jesus, war, and Hitler. This project will track down extant German Christian publications and make available for the first time English-language translations of a representative selection, together with an introduction setting out their historical and theological context and significance.
