The Lamb and the Fuhrer : Jesus Talks With Hitler
Series: Great Conversations Series
Author: Ravi K Zacharias
Adolf Hitler: Evil, hatred, pride, and destruction. Jesus Christ: Peace, love, humility, and life. What could they possibly have to talk about? In this compelling dialogue, two men of contrasting values meet face-to-face. They address fundamental issues of life and death, the evil of violence in light of the value of human life, and the timeless search for unity in diversity. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German pastor Hitler ordered hanged, joins in and the heat intensifies when the three begin to weigh the value of relationships, love, and forgiveness. You won’t want to miss this imaginative discourse that will take you inside the mind of one of the most brutal tyrants of all time
and the very God who made him.
"This full-cast production portrays German pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Adolf Hitler, and Jesus Christ with convincing clarity. The compelling dialogue begins with an account of Hitler’s last hours, including his poisoning of his loyal dogs, their barking and whining turning to whimpers as they sense his intention. Slamming car doors and background commotion add authenticity. Hitler’s spewing hatred, maniacal reasoning, and bombastic authority are exceptionally well done, complete with German accents. When Jesus and Bonhoeffer leave through heaven’s “narrow door” after a lengthy discussion with Hitler, he learns that hell is separation from God, that the end does not justify the means, and that the price of his selfish life is a final eternity of pain."
