The first half of this book is a biography of Adolf Hitler, from birth to death. The last half ponders why Hitler hated the Jews so much and also the fact that Hitler believed in God and claimed that "my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty God." Was Hitler an atheist or a Christian?

The very last chapter of this book brings out the parallel of the Holocaust in Nazi Germany and another holocaust that is happening right here in America: abortion. People in Germany either did not

This book was chugging along just fine until the last thirty pages or so when the author decided-- quite unnecessarily-- to share his personal faith, personal interpretations of Scripture, and attempt to lay a religious guilt-trip on the reader and/or convert them. Screw you and your pushy, one-sided Christianity. If I'd known the author was a Fundamentalist, I would never have picked this title up.

This is an excellent book by Ray Comfort. I am very glad I spent the time to read it because it was eye-opening. I purchased it knowing that it was connected to the 180 movie he produced (now I see why it's so closely related). The book goes through Hitler's life and how he distorted Christianity to fit his propaganda machine, including setting up his own national "church," pretty much banning the Bible in Germany, and setting up his own bible with his own commandments. No, Hitler was not a Chri ...more

A sloppy biography at best, a bad front for oversimplified pro-life propaganda at worst.

The first 3/4 of this book was a clear, concise, and accurate description of Hitler's rise to power. Comfort quotes pieces of Hitler's "Mein Kampf" as well as other writings by commanders within the Nazi Party. I would suggest this part of the book to anyone who wants a basic, yet intriguing overview of Hitler's evolution as a disgusting tyrant. For this part of the book I give it a 4/5.

The last 1/4 of this book was very disturbing and quite false. Comfort desperately tries to distance Hitler wi

This is an outstanding book. We need to remember how Hitler got power. This book also shows how Christianity gets blamed for evil when really it wasn't involved. It also shows how the same things are going on today. A good book and one everyone should read, not just Christians.

I appreciate the value of studying history. Having long been a student of previous cultures & historical events, I found this book idea provocative. I was listening to Jan Markell's 'Understanding The Times' (Olive Tree Ministries) on the internet, & picked up a fascinating segment with Ray Comfort. He & Jan discussed this book & the conversation alone sparked my interest. I ordered it. I began reading & read it in two sittings.

I did not have an interest in Hitler himself, no

Thought-provoking. Helps bring understanding of who this horrific man was, his movement, and his manipulation of God and the Bible. Reinforces the unspeakable while giving perspective for the "deepest Hell man can create" (Corrie ten Boom) while also giving a historical back drop making other Holocaust books and movies easier to understand.

Great book, at least the first 85 percent of it. There is a lot of interesting detail about him prior to his dictatorship. The last two chapters are a bit preachy. Not that I minded the message, but it was a pretty drastic change in voice. I felt myself wanting more personal detail like the beginning of the book and couldn't transition well with the different voice. Still recommend it for a telling inside look at an evil soul...we must know the enemy so we can hopefully prevent it from happening ...more

First half is a overview if Hitler's life, which is ok, but the other half is about how he used 'religion' to further his agenda--very insightful.

An important and impassioned book which gives a clear (if brief) insight into Hitler's ideology, and especially where this touches on his anti-Semitism and entire rewriting of the Christian gospel. Particularly interesting are his 30 directives with regard to the 'German National Church', including replacing the Bible with Mein Kampf and crosses with swastikas. May God deliver us from any such man, and indeed from ourselves.

It was actually a rather good argument for three views; one, that Hitler was really not a Christian, but a "compulsive liar" (page 142). Second, that our picture of God is what brings about the question, "why does God allow evil/suffering?". Third, that abortion is a Holocaust that exists in our very backyards. Although it wasn't as tightly written as I would have liked, it gave me a lot to ponder...

Fascinating book in the beginning. Hitler may not have been a staunch believer per se, but He used religion in a manipulative mannerto garner support for his targeted persecution. World war 1, Narcissism, anti-Jewish propaganda, and his charisma all played roles in his rise to power. The abortion comparison to the holocaust was a bit much, and uncalled for.

This is a good book to learn history about Hitler from a Christian perspective. He gives quite a bit of information that I had never heard of about Hitler and the Nazi regime.The last thing Ray says is that money is the root of all evil. I don't agree with that phrase. It's when we worship money or use it for evil purposes it is evil.

Good book! Learned some things about Hitler and the Nazis that I didn't know before. I thought that the book was going to focus more on Hitler's theology more than it did. The book was basically a short biography of Hitler's life and then the theology was thrown in at the end. It was still extremely fascinating and worth reading.

This book was so good until the last 5-10%. He went on some tangents that didn't fit with the book. A lot of the book was Hitler's history (which was interesting, I learned a lot I didn't know) but I didn't feel that the God and Bible part of the title were developed well.

A very interesting read. Ray Comfort basically sums up what he talks about in his film 180 which outlines Hitler's life and compares it to the American Holocaust, abortion.
