Full Disclosure:  it is my ministry’s publishing company that is releasing this book.

Due out on Hitler’s birthday (April 20th, 2009), Joe Keysor’s book, Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible: A Scriptural Analysis of Anti-Semitism, National Socialism, and the Churches in Nazi Germany is an important book counteracting the growing clamor that Christianity was the driving ideology behind Hitler, the Nazis, and the Holocaust. It is very important- for obvious reasons- for secular humanists and atheists to show that brutal tyrants were not operating on their principles but rather on Christian principles. In some cases such as Mao and Pol Pot the operation cannot even be attempted. In others, such as Lenin and Stalin, more headway is made. In Hitler, secularists consider the matter a slam dunk.

The problem, of course, is that facts actually matter and the actual facts tell a different story. Beliefs have consequences and religion has often brought about some nasty ones but the historical realities are what they are. Unfortunately, one cannot count on people to know the facts, nor educators to provide them. For this reason among many, Mr. Keysor’s book is invaluable.

Mr. Keysor addresses the charges head on with some common sense tactics. For example, if the New Testament lays out a mindset and body of beliefs that utterly contradict what Hitler did, who is really fooled by Hitler’s words employing Christian words? Some people are fooled but it would appear that either they want to be fooled, are unaware of what the New Testament actually says, are unaware of what Hitler did, or unaware of Hitler’s true influences.

That is where Mr. Keysor’s work really shines. Extensively researched with an immense bibliography to boast, Mr. Keysor’s book exhaustively mines the writings that Hitler himself cited as influential (if anyone care’s about Hitler as an authoritative source on the matter, of course) and writings that perhaps were not expressly cited but clearly reflected in Hitler’s ideology.

Mr. Keysor astutely observes, “Odd, that for so many people the 16th century and the 1st century had so much to do with the Holocaust, and the 19th century had nothing to do with it.” (pg 70)

This completely jibes with my assessment of the situation, too. Secularists are quick to identify seeds of anti-semitism (alleged and actual) in the New Testament and in certain figures such as Martin Luther, though these preceded Hitler by more than 300 years. In the meantime, in the 18th and 19th centuries Germany was churning out anti-semite after anti-semite. Mr. Keysor documents this and traces the influence of men like Wagner, Chamberlain, Haeckel, and Nietzsche (to name a few) on the German people and, in time, Hitler himself.

Even if you disagree with some of the conclusions and statements in the book the most important ones are incontrovertible and are backed up with thorough citation and argumentation. In fact, if only for the extensive bibliography and the 11 page index, Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible will serve as a useful research tool. Christians encountering the charge that their Christian faith led to the Holocaust will have ample ammunition for countering the charge and plenty of research options for expanding on Keysor’s own work. It is a treasure trove of resources and information.

Naturally, atheists, secular humanists, and even the ‘New Atheists,’ if they are interested in truth, will find Keysor’s arguments difficult to overturn. If they wish to continue to argue that Hitler was a Christian they will have to react to a number of embarrassing facts.

Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible ought to be on every pastor’s shelf, included in college libraries (especially Christian institution of higher education), and every Christian apologist’s library.

Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible is available for pre-order and will be available on sites such as Amazon.com in short order. The website is www.hitlerandchristianity.com

    Dear St. Johnny
    It’s to bad to see another book that will soon be an embarrassment by the soon coming truth about so called \Holocaust\.
    What so amazes me is the fact it only takes a matter of a couple of hours to find out the other side (non-Jew approved version) of what truthfully took place.
    Like this one for example:


    If you are a lover of the truth should not be ignored.

    I implore anyone who believes they know
    the truth about the Holocaust to visit this site:


    The truth will stand on it’s on merit.

    To the extent that I think I understand the point of these litanies, they are the least reflective posts I think I’ve ever seen.

  1. Military Bible!
    1. Adolf Hitlers Bible ( Auschwitz )
    2. Adolf Eichmanns Bible (Auschwitz-Holocaust)
    3. Nazi-Bible
    4. Lindon Johnsons Bible (Vietnam)
    5. Richards Nixons Bible (Vietnam-Cambodia-Laos)
    6. George W. Bushs Bible (Iraqware)
    7. Barack Hussein Obamas Bible (Afgh.war+Iranwar)

  2. Pedophily in the Bible!!!

    1. Sparky Said:
    August:26:2009 – 09:45

    I’m just wondering what a 70 year old man would want with a ten year old girl??? What could they possibly have in common? I think people get to stuck on the Is it haram or Is it permissable kick. They need to ask themselves, “Does it make any sense whatsoever?”
    John Burgess Said:
    August:26:2009 – 09:45

    Since the time of King David (at least!), old men have found young girls to have the power to a) delay aging or b) cure ED, and more recently, c) to prevent/cure AIDS. Check the first few verses of 1 Kings in the Old Testament.
    Sparky Said:
    August:26:2009 – 09:45

    I haven’t had my hands on any holy books recently. One thing I do know for sure is what my daughter who is 9 and a half would say if I told her she is to be wed to a 70 year old, “Hanna Montana SAY WHAT!!!”

    Sparky Said:
    August:26:2009 – 09:45

    Let me add if I told my daughter that she is to be wed to any man aged 10-100 she’d still say “Hannah Montana Say What”.

    I am still afraid of the possibility of her accidentally setting the house on fire or getting her finger stuck in an electric socket.

    Pedophily in the Bible!!!
    NUm. 31:17.

    Moses and Hitler: Two brothers!
    Moses and Hitler have much in common, they had the same ideas and performed similar acts. Both were trying hard, other nations to eradicate. Both did so primarily for their own ideology and to take for its own people, the country and the goods of other nations possess. For Moses it was the Amalekites, Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivite and Jebusites, Midianites, and still some more that are extinct or be exterminated. For Hitler it was primarily the Jews, Roma, Sinti and many Slavs. Moses has to rely on his God Yahweh Hitler in Providence. Both called on civil authorities not only had no objection against the genocide, on the contrary, these genocides were approved in the interests of select groups of people of the Jews and the Aryans of the divine authority or arranged. In the fourth book of Moses, chapter 31, it means, for example over the people of Midian. “And they (Israel) led the army against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses, and slew all the males” And a little further: “And the children of Israel took captive the women of Midian and their children, all of their livestock, all their possessions and all their goods they plundered and burned with fire all their cities. . Took And all the spoil, and all that was to take, man and beast “but later states:” Moses was wroth with the officers of the army and said to them: Have ye saved all the women and let live “So they had to Women also kill. Sometimes the children of Israel were permitted exceptions regarding women, so they did not have the still virginal girl to death, but they were allowed to keep for themselves and use. Joshua, assistant and successor of Moses, learned of the genocide as thoroughly and exercised.

    From the Nazi reign of terror, we know how families were torn apart and destroyed. The exact same atrocities in the 4th Book of Moses are described in great detail, Outcast to see how the non-Jewish women had to, even if they had children or were pregnant. It says: The people of Israel and the priests and Levites have not separated themselves from the people of the countries … namely, the Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians and Amorites, for they have taken their daughters for themselves and their sons and made the holy seed in common with these people. In no other written records, the purity of blood and race and religion represent a fanatical and prosecuted in the Old Testament The reason: God has chosen the Israelites as his people and they will rise above all the nations on earth. This ideology of uniqueness and being chosen with incalculable consequences terrible experience in the Nazi Reich cruel resurrection and practical implementation. But no one should draw from these observations new reasons for anti-Semitism. This ideology of election is in fact equally been pursued further in Christianity. In Luke 6:00 reads, “Do not tell me you did not choose, but I chose you” And in Matthew, Jesus is quoted as saying. “Many are called but few are chosen” and he should have said he will return to his “chosen ones . to collect “The same ideology can be found by the apostles to the present Pope, in the evangelical Americans as with the Jewish settlers and the Israeli right-wing parties and also with the Islamists, who want to bring the whole world under the domination of their violent Allah why. these include books of Moses with the terrible Holocaust stories still to the holy books in Judaism, Christianity and Islam appeared in Is not it time to call these books for what they really are: How to Holocaust ideologies and not source-ending religiously and ideologically motivated struggle and extermination campaigns? Whoever succeeds to break away from the idea of the special by God Chosen One against most other people, which makes a little to the invaluable contribution to peace in the world.
