This is the first study to concentrate on evangelical reactions to the National Socialist regime. The author analyses the treatment of National Socialist social, political and economic policies in the
Evangelisches Allianzblatt and makes references to other evangelical publications. He highlights the support theological conservatives in Germany gave to the government and examines their reticence in joining the
Kirchenkampf. The German evangelical analysis of National Socialism is contrasted with the position taken by the British editors of
Evangelical Christendom. The evangelical
Vergangenheitsbewältigung is dealt with in a concluding chapter.
