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
