”The subject matter of this book is controversial,” Guenter Lewy states plainly in his preface. To show the German Catholic Church's congeniality with some of the goals of National Socialism and its gradual entrapment in Nazi policies and programs, Lewy describes the episcopate's support of Hitler's expansionist policies and its failures to speak out on the persecution of the Jews.

 Provocative and shocking, Guenter Lewy's book proves what some historians and critics have long alleged. The Catholic Church and Nazi Germany is the stunning story of the German Catholic Church's sympathy for - and even collusion with - the Nazi agenda and its failure to speak out against the persecution of the Jews.
