The story of Nazi Germany is one of conflict between two saviors and two crosses.'Deine Reich komme,' Hitler prayed publicly - 'Thy Kingdom come.' But to whose kingdom was he referring?
When Germany truly needed a savior, Adolf Hitler falsely assumed the role. He directed his countrymen to a cross, but he bent and hammered the true cross into a horrific substitute: a swastika.
Where was the church through all of this? With a few exceptions, the German church looked away while Hitler inflicted his 'Final Solution' upon the Jews. Hitler's Cross is a chilling historical account of what happens when evil meets a silent, shrinking church, and an intriguing and convicting exposé of modern America's own hidden crosses.
Erwin W. Lutzer extracts a number of lessons from this dark chapter in world history, such as:
The dangers of confusing church and state
The role of God in human tragedy
The parameters of Satan's freedom
Hitler's Cross is the story of a nation whose church forgot its call and discovered its failure way too late. It is a cautionary tale for every church and Christian to remember who the true King is.
