Years ago, I became fascinated with the 1930’s German Church War and issues surrounding it – the decline of Christianity in Germany, euthanasia, genocide, and World War II. Ironically, very little is known of the German Church War today; but the more I studied it, the more I became convinced that today’s world is intricately interwoven with that world. I felt compelled to write a history revealing those connections; a history I have titled “War Comes to God’s House“. And as I studied those issues, I was drawn back farther and farther into history, because they all had antecedents in historical events and ideas. So as I wrote, War Comes became more and more a series of essays on historical events and religious and philosophical movements. You can proceed directly to War Comes (linked on the slider and below) and enjoy the whole panorama in its context, or you can visit the series of essays on various subjects I have extracted and archived on this page. The major themes of War Comes, the Church War and euthanasia program are too lengthy and complex for extraction into short essays, so you must visit the main document to study them. A slide show on the War Comes website gives brief introductions to some of those subjects.
I have only begun the process of extracting topical essays (and in a rather random fashion) so check back again for updates.
Thanks for visiting.
