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.
