Hitler's Theology investigates the use of theological motifs in
Adolf Hitler's public speeches and writings, and offers an answer
to the question of why Hitler and his theo-political ideology were
so attractive and successful presenting an alternative to the
discontents of modernity. The book gives a systematic
reconstruction of Hitler's use of theological concepts like
providence, belief or the almighty God. Rainer Bucher argues that
Hitler's (ab)use of theological ideas is one of the main reasons
why and how Hitler gained so much acquiescence and support for his
diabolic enterprise. This fascinating study concludes by
contextualizing Hitler's theology in terms of a wider theory of
modernity and in particular by analyzing the churches' struggle
with modernity. Finally, the author evaluates the use of theology
from a practical theological perspective. This book will be of
interest to students of Religious Studies, Theology, Holocaust
Studies, Jewish Studies, Religion and Politics, and German History.
