Abstract:

The ordeal of the German Evangelical Church is as severe as it has ever been. With diabolical ingenuity and under cover of legality (laws never intended to apply to the Church being pressed into service) a campaign of suppression is being carried on -- so successfully that it is confidently felt that little else remains to be done, and that it is only a matter of time till the Church will disappear. As long as Christianity remains Christianity and as long as National Socialism remains National Socialism conflict is inevitable. The totalitarian National Socialist Weltanschauung is a pagan faith that cannot but regard Christianity as alien and antagonistic. This book makes that very plain. - Translator's note.
