Celebrate Hitler's Birthday by Knowing the Truth about Christianity, Nazism, and the Holocaust
MEDIA ADVISORY, April 20 /Christian Newswire
/ -- In a book released today, on Hitler's birthday, Author Joe Keysor combats the growing charge that Christianity fed the Nazi purge of the Jews and Hitler's hatred in his book "Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible: A Scriptural Analysis of Anti-Semitism, National Socialism, and the Churches in Nazi Germany."
Many Christians are unaware that their faith is being painted more and more as the reason for Hitler's hatred for the Jews and the cause of the Holocaust. "New" Atheists like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris are doing their best to depict all religion as dangerous and Christianity included. Other secularists have continued this train of thought by asserting that Hitler was a Christian.
While reputable scholars reject such notions, they are rampant on the Internet, which, unfortunately, is the sole source of information for young people, Christians included.
Keysor's book is a thorough examination- and refutation- of these accusations. Keysor is not content to leave it at that. He goes further and documents the true intellectual and moral foundation of National Socialism. With pain staking research and extensive documentation to support his contentions, Keysor shows how the philosophers of the previous century are reflected in the Nazi ideology.
Besides showing the connection between Nazism and the views of men like Wagner, Chamberlain, Haeckel, and Nietzsche (to name a few), Keysor also provides ample documentation of the anti-semitism of these men, much of which rested on Darwinian applications then in vogue.
It seems impossible to believe that anyone could blame the rise of Nazism and the resulting Holocaust on Christianity but in fact the charge is becoming increasingly common. For this reason, contemporary treatments like Mr. Keysor's are necessary.
