This is an American edition of a book originally published abroad and it should have a wide reading in America, especially among church people, but also among those who sometimes question the value of the church in times of crisis. It is a brief outline of what the churches of Europe have done and suffered and learned in their struggle against Nazism. It tells of the spiritual resistance in word and deed of Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Churches within Germany itself, in the lands occupied by the Nazis, and within the borders of Germany's ""uneasy allies"". It shows how in all countries the churches have not only survived, but offered strong opposition to the anti-religious program of the Nazis, and as a result there has been created a new solidarity between Christians of all nations, ""a sense of togetherness in Christ"". Encouraging reading for all Christians, which reveals the real inner strength of the Church.
