    One thought on “Hitler's Religion: The Twisted Beliefs that Drove the Third Reich”

    1. OK, but not much too it If you read the first chapter, you ve basically read the book It s a 300 page book that reads like it could be a 30 page article and not miss much.Weikart argues that Hitler was a pantheist His public statements on religion were intentionally scattershot so people would have trouble knowing quite where he stood and thus couldn t criticize him as easily He clearly didn t believe in a typical Christian deity He opposed the universalism of Christinaity, its Jewish roots, and [...]

    2. Please give my review a helpful vote on review RAI0BLEThis is a well researched, well reasoned book that supports its conclusion with a keen addition to primary source material.The issue of Hitler s religion is an evergreen topic in modern culture, with every side willing to award the prize to another side The stakes are presumably high since Hitler is as close to the incarnation of the anti Christ as modern culture is likely to recognize.I ve been plowing the same issue as a Catholic amateur h [...]

    3. Fascinating look at Hitler s worldview Shows that not only was he not Christian, but was anti Christian and his actual world view was about as far removed from historical Christianity as possible.

    4. This is a fascinating idea The book goes on for quite awhile indeed, further than I needed it to and includes an extensive notes section and index Some of it is painful to read Indeed, the author acknowledges that his use of certain terms and phrases could offend people if they forget he is only describing what others thought, wrote and said Many books on this subject are written by people who seem to share some of the beliefs described This one did not, which makes a difference.Of course, it wo [...]

    5. Hitler God A good explanation of Hitler s world view, and a good break down of his religious underpinnings.If you want to understand how an entire country can be drawn into the worst evil imaginable, this is a book worth reading Well researched.A lot of repetition of the main points, which made for slower reading, of an otherwise clear and understandable text.

    6. I thought I had already reviewed this as I finished a week ago Excellent read as it explains accurately as much as possible what Hitler believed and what he didn t.

    7. This book challenges a lot of the thoughts beliefs that the world has held about Hitler and his beliefs His only true god was that of Natured the German People Volk.

    8. 3.5 stars Biography Weikart adds notably to literature on Hitler.Writing 3 starsThe book moves along, staying on point and not getting bogged down Some chapters evince linear analysis, but others seem to be thrown together As the book begins, there is some overlap of quotations and themes by Chapter 5 it has become mildly repetitive, and by the end of the book it has moved into moderate repetitiveness This detracted a half star from the Writing score It is as if the book was meant to be read as [...]

    9. Hitler was a Christian Hitler was an atheist Hitler is invoked by1 the religious to show the consequences of Darwinism 2 the irreligious to show the church gone wild Who is right Weikart gives a well researched answer His conclusion spoilers is that Hitler was a pantheist Certainly no Sunday school student, and closer to Darwin than Lewis My personal view is that Hitler is the logical exponent to the atheist European philosophies with naturalism thrown in for good measure We re not being honest [...]
