This volume explores the dramatic struggle between Nazism and the German Confessing Church - a group of outraged Christians who sought to establish a church untainted by Nazi ideology. The author's research included interviews with more than 60 Germans who were active in the Confessing Church. She quotes liberally from their frank, unvarnished testimony, using historical and archival material to frame their stories. The text portrays a church divided between those who compromised with Nazism and those who eventually tried to overthrow it. This book is intended for students and scholars of Protestant and European history.
