When A Nation Forgets God (7 lessons we must learn from Nazi Germany) by Erwin W. Luther was a very very interesting book to read. I have always found World War II and The Holocaust extremely interesting and one of the most epic parts of our history, so when I saw this book up for offer on the Moody Publishers book review program, I snatched it up as soon as I could. I knew from even before I read it that it was going to be the type of book that I either was going to really understand and receive well, or a book that was going to make me shake my head and question why I was reading it. To be honest, it was a little of both.
This book tells us how things that we do in our society are mirroring things that have been done and that have happened during Hitler’s reign on Germany. The book explains how our government, economy, propaganda and much more are contributing to the downfall of our society.
This book also talks about how the fact that religion is disregarded in most of our lives, that it creates issues with our minds, our work, our school systems, and everything that makes up our country.
This is one of those books that you either full on support, or a book that you sometimes look at with side eyes. I was on the more side of suspiciously glancing at the book every once in a while. I have my own views about certain things like abortion, gay marriage, blah blah blah, while this book sort of tells us the way we “should” feel about those things in line with how God feels about it. Yes, in some religions that is how people feel, but if you can separate those facts with the other information in this book, I think this is actually a pretty decent read, and the author had some good points. Like I said, I didn’t agree with them all, but that is most likely never going to happen with a book like this. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars, I also received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
