In presenting a subject of this kind it is evident that some limitations must be set. A full treatment of Totalitarianism would necessitate not only an examination of its various aspects as exemplified by the several nations of the world under Dictator rule today, but also some consideration of strong totalitarian tendencies in many of the so-called democracies of the world.

Likewise, Christianity is an all-inclusive term under which are many religious denominations with their individual organization and peculiar interpretation of the Christian Gospel. This makes it necessary to present A Christian Critique rather than ~Christian Critique.

Therefore, it shall be the purpose of this study to examine National Socialism in Germany, perhaps the most conspicuous example of the totalitarian ideology today, from the view point of Protestant, or rather non-Catholic, Christianity.
