"In the strongest chapter of the book, J. S. Conway details the struggle between the churches and the Third Reich and points out the paradox that in 1933 no one really wanted this. He shows that the Barmen Declaration was not intended as a political protest against the Hitler state but only the nazified Church, that the Confessing Church was never really the spearhead of resistance to the tyranny that engulfed Germany, that the Roman Catholic Church was essentially neutralized, and that the churchgoing population did not realize the implications of Nazism until it was too late."- Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
