Hitler's cross by Erwin W Lutzer( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hakenkreuz, or broken cross, became the vivid icon under which Adolph Hitler united his destitute and pride-starved nation. As Der Führer, supreme leader of the Reich, Hitler rejoiced that the swastika was openly displayed in churches throughout Germany. Confused at first by their responsibilities, then deceived by their pride, many church leaders capitulated to the wave of nationalism that swept the cross of Jesus Christ from its rightful place. Others did not -- and paid the ultimate price for upholding the truth. Erwin W. Lutzer explores the story of Hitler's cross -- how a whole race of people so in need of a champion found little help from the church of Christ and so invited the judgment of God. - Jacket

When a nation forgets God : 7 lessons we must learn from Nazi Germany by Erwin W Lutzer( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The people of Nazi Germany weren't any more barbaric, uncivilized, or depraved than any other Western nation of the early Twentieth Century, yet the Nazi regime will forever serve as an example of brutality and extreme racism run amok. What led so many people to such extreme ends? According to Dr. Lutzer, the German people's progression from civility to barbarity was not extraordinary, and more than a few benchmarks from their transition can be observed in present day American society. --from publisher description

The truth about same-sex marriage : 6 things you need to know about what's really at stake by Erwin W Lutzer( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suddenly, same-sex marriage is legal. And most pastors and believers were caught by surprise. But they shouldn't have been. The judicial decision and race to the altars of Massachusetts on May 17 was not sudden at all. It was the culmination of a carefully orchestrated agenda planned for years and executed with precision. Why couldn't the church stop it? Perhaps more importantly, how should the church respond today? With fury? With love? With the Truth of Scripture? The Truth About Same-Sex Marriage is a starting point for truly understanding all sides of this issue. And in its pages are a few surprises of its own. Respected pastor and theologian Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer brings new insight into the workings of the well-organized gay activist agenda, the impact same-sex marriage will have on families, children and the church, and the biblical response from caring Christians

The cross in the shadow of the crescent by Erwin W Lutzer( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America, and the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion-- but this in turn opens an incredible door of ministry for Christians, for Muslims normally do not have access to the gospel in their own lands. Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern

Rescuing the Gospel : the story and significance of the Reformation by Erwin W Lutzer( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Riveting Story of the Reformation and Its Significance Today The Reformation unfolded in the cathedrals and town squares of Europe-in Wittenberg, Worms, Rome, Geneva, and Zurich-and it is a stirring story of courage and cowardice, of betrayal and faith. The story begins with the Catholic Church and its desperate need for reform. The dramatic events that followed are traced from John Wycliffe in England, to the burning of John Hus at the stake in Prague, to the rampant sale of indulgences in the cities and towns of Germany, to Martin Luther nailing the Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in 1517, to John Calvin's reform of Geneva. Erwin Lutzer captures the people, places, and big ideas that fueled the Reformation and explains its lasting influence on the church and Western Civilization
Who are you to judge? : learning to distinguish between truths, half-truths, and lies by Erwin W Lutzer( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We live in a world that tolerates everything but judgment. What we don't realize is that right judgment is the key to right living. Who Are You To Judge? is Lutzer's word to a culture that hates being told how to live and to a church called to purity. After explaining the difference between judging and being judgmental, Lutzer guides Christians in discerning various critical issues, including miracles, matters of doctrine, and godly engagement with entertainment and culture. With a passion for biblical truth and intolerance for lies, Lutzer is compelling and gut-honest. Who Are You to Judge? calls us to not only embrace the truth, but also to live according to it, speaking the truth in love to a world so desperately in need of both.--Page 4 of cover
