This site is the precursor to what is now a book published by Athanatos Publishing Group titled Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible: A Scriptural Analysis of Anti-Semitism, National Socialism, and the Churches in Nazi Germany. The book’s home page is http://www.hitlerandchristianity.com and you can also purchase it on Amazon.com.
This site attempts to address these and related questions from the point of view of belief in the Old and New Testaments as the literal word of God. It is divided into six parts. The first part is a photo essay. It presents various photographs with accompanying bible verses describing Hitler and his crimes from a Christian point of view. OPEN HERE
The second part, “Christianity and Hitler” is a brief overview consisting of twelve main points. Hitler’s religious statements; his dealings with the churches; secular elements in his thought; Martin Luther – these and other aspects are studied to demonstrate that Hitler’s words and actions were not in agreement with biblical Christianity.

Part three is a response to Jim Walker’s “Hitler’s Christianity” website, http://www.nobeliefs.com/Hitler1.htm. It examines numerous errors, logical flaws, and distortions of fact on the site OPEN HERE
The fourth part is an open letter to some academics. OPEN HERE
Much of this site has now been incorporated into a book which you can pick up at http://www.hitlerandchristianity.com.
