The hakenkreus, or broken cross, became the vivid icon under which Adolf Hitler united his destitute and pride-starved nation. Many church leaders capitulated to the wave of nationalism that swept the cross of Jesus Christ from its rightful place. Others did not-and paid the price for upholding the truth.

The author explores the story of Hitler's Cross-how a whole race of people so in need of a champion found little help from the Church of Christ and so invited the judgement of God.

Erwin W. Lutzer's book >Hitler's Cross: The Revealing Story of How the Cross of Christ Was Used As a Symbol of the Nazi Agenda< is a chilling and eye-opening, well-documented history book -- or, is it a prophecy of what has already started happening in America? Engrossing! You won't want to put it down. Read it thoroughly, and then read it again for the depth -- and the warning -- it offers. Excellent for homeschoolers, mature junior high readers and up, adults, World War II buffs, and those who love the untold stories and intricacies of history. Could this happen again? Could it happen in America? The answer may change the way you think of government, church, and the Christian faith. Nazi Germany was not a "red-letter day" for the German Christian church, but the trials of that era did produce several lessons for today.
