about

The Confessing Church was one of the rare German organizations that opposed Nazism from the very beginning, and in For the Soul of the People, Victoria Barnett delves into the story of the Church's resistance to Hitler. For this remarkable story, Barnett interviewed more than sixty Germans whowere active in the Confessing Church, asking them to reflect on their personal experiences under Hitler and how they see themselves, morally and politically, today. She provides a haunting glimpse of the German experience under Hitler, but also gives a provocative look into what it has meant to be aGerman in the twentieth century.
Victoria Barnett is a graduate of Union Theological Seminary, New York, and a professional writer whose articles have appeared in Christianity and Crisis, The Christian Century, The Witness, and the news bulletins of Religious News Service. She lived in Germany for 13 years and now lives in Washington, D.C.

Editorial Reviews

"Conveying an accurate portrait and understanding of the German church struggle under National Socialism has proven to be extraordinarily complicated....Victoria Barnett is singularly well prepared to do this. She has written an unusually accurate, sophisticated, and vivid book about theGerman church struggle...a genuinely absorbing and readable work."--Eberhard Bethge, biographer of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
