"Nazi religion was "Positive Christianity"--a term coined by Hitler, who deemed traditional Christianity to be "negative Christianity," which he wanted to eradicate. This book describes when and where this religious component was embraced; how it was received and critiqued by the most prominent theologians of the 1930s; and how, in France, the Catholic and Protestant churches (as well as independent priests) worked to fight Nazism during World War II"-- Provided by publisher.
