The heart-pounding history of how Pope Pius XII--often labeled "Hitler's Pope"--was in fact an anti-Nazi spymaster, plotting against the Third Reich during World War II The Vatican's silence in the face of Nazi atrocities remains one of the great controversies of our time. History has accused wartime pontiff Pius the Twelfth of complicity in the Holocaust and dubbed him "Hitler's Pope." But a key part of the story has remained untold. Pope Pius in fact ran the world's largest church, smallest state, and oldest spy service. Saintly but secretive, he sent birthday cards to Hitler--while secretly plotting to kill him. He skimmed from church charities to pay covert couriers, and surreptitiously tape-recorded his meetings with top Nazis. Under his leadership the Vatican spy ring actively plotted against the Third Reich. Told with heart-pounding suspense and drawing on secret transcripts and unsealed files, Church of Spies throws open the Vatican's doors to reveal some of the most astonishing events in the history of the papacy. Riebling reveals here how the world's greatest moral institution met the greatest moral crisis in history.

Hold onto your seat as you read some of the most intriguing stories and testimonies as given by Pastor John Waterhouse as he was living in the world’s most secretive country in the world - Mainland China. The glory of God was visible with Israel in the church in the wilderness as pillars of fire and clouds. Much to John’s amazement, the fire and clouds of glory became visible and tangible, accompanied by the Pentecostal wind in churches in many cities and villages around the country. The blind saw and the deaf were made to hear by the power of the name of Jesus Christ. All the manifestations that were witnessed on the day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago manifested in every meeting for nearly 16 months. Read the stories and see how Pastor John reveals this outpouring as a much needed Present Day Reality. The world is in great need of witnessing the glory of God that shines from the face of Jesus Christ and the church needs to hear what the Spirit is saying to them in our day. Pastor John believes that this book will be a launching pad for many bold Believers to launch themselves into an opportunity to experience Heaven Invading THEIR Country. Pastor John believes that it’s the Lord’s will that the church evolves into the Living Pentecostal Outpouring that He had planned it to be. Haggai 2:9 “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts.” (KJV)

This book consists of seven stand-alone accounts of individuals who operated as spies during the American Revolutionary War. They were not trained as covert agents, which meant they had to develop their skills and techniques on their own, often while in the midst of the enemy where discovery meant almost certain death for them, and suffering and hardship for their family and friends. Five of them spied for the American cause and two spied for the British. Not all were motivated by patriotism, and not all escaped capture, yet their often painfully gained experience benefited future operatives and operations. They all were daring, intelligent and resourceful, and each had an unusual personality. Their labors resulted in battlefield victories, thwarted enemy plots, and significantly changed the conduct of the war, yet in spite of their efforts and their riveting stories, they and their deeds have remained relatively unknown.

Frankreich: "Erbfeind" oder "Erneuerer"? Die französische Besatzungspolitik von 1945 bis 1949 galt lange als Hindernis für die deutsch-französische Freundschaft. Aber das Bild muß korrigiert werden. Die französische Politik zeichnete sich bei aller Widersprüchlichkeit durch Eigenständigkeit, Originalität und durch Reformansätze aus, die sich an den Zielen von Demokratisierung, Dezentralisierung und Denazifizierung orientierten. Ein Teil der Reformen versandete jedoch, weil sie den Alltagsbedürfnissen der Bevölkerung nicht entsprachen. Dies zeigen die Autoren am Beispiel des Landes Baden. Eindringlich schildern sie, Alltag und Alltagsnot der Menschen und bringen das in Zusammenhang mit der politischen Geschichte. Die Betroffenen empfanden die französischen Vorhaben trotz überzeugender Konzepte häufig als negativ. Diese Kluft wirkte noch lange nach. Ein Beispiel ist die in der französischen Besatzungszone praktizierte Spielart der Entnazifizierung, die "auto-épuration". Sie sollte nicht schematisch, sondern unter Würdigung der individuellen Umstände die wirklich Schuldigen treffen und zugleich, da die Deutschen selbst entscheidend am Verfahren beteiligt waren, eine gründliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Vergangenheit ermöglichen. Die Art der Verwirklichung ließ die "Selbst-Reinigung" scheitern, doch die Idee kann immer noch eine gewisse Plausibilität beanspruchen. Sie war nicht die einzige Besonderheit Nachkriegsbadens innerhalb der Besatzungszonen. Manches aus der Nachkriegszeit Badens ist vergessen worden, war aber keineswegs bedeutungslos. Dieses Buch hilft mit, es wieder bewußt zu machen.

Am 6. Mai 1939 wurde durch den Beschluss mehrerer protestantischer Landeskirchen das »Institut zur Erforschung und Beseitigung des jüdischen Einflusses auf das deutsche kirchliche Leben« gegründet. Ihm gehörten weit über 150 Mitarbeiter an, die eine »Entjudung« des Christentums anstrebten. Das Institut wird als Teil der umfangreichen antisemitischen »Judenforschung« im Dritten Reich verstanden. Die beteiligten Mitarbeiter nutzten eine religionsvergleichende Methode, die man als Religionswissenschaft bezeichnete, um nachzuweisen, dass Jesus »arischer« Herkunft gewesen und dass deswegen eine »Entjudung« des Christentums nötig sei. Anhand der Arbeiten von sieben Universitätsmitarbeitern für das Institut zeigt Dirk Schuster, dass diese Forschungen als Teil der religionswissenschaftlichen Fachgeschichte zu sehen sind. The Institute for the Study and Eradication of Jewish Influence on German Religious Life, which was found on the 6th of May 1939 by the decision of several Protestant national churches, had more than 150 contributors, who strived for the Dejudaisation of Christianity. The existing research firstly proves that the idea of Dejudaisation has its origin in the religious worldview of the Protestant German Christian Church Movement. For the evidence that Jesus was an Aryan and the necessity of a Dejudaisation of Christianity, participating contributors used a religion comparative method of working, which was called the science of religion. This book provides therefore an input for the refurbishment of religion scientific history for the Third Reich and stresses at the same time that the term science of religion has different interpretations. Furthermore this church institution was understood as a part of the complex anti-Semitic „Judenforschung“ in the Third Reich and not only as a ecclesiastical research institution without a connection to the development of science in Nazi Germany.

The real-life cloak-and-dagger story of how East Germany's notorious spy agency infiltrated churches here and abroad East Germany only existed for a short forty years, but in that time, the country's secret police, the Stasi, developed a highly successful "church department" that--using persuasion rather than threats--managed to recruit an extraordinary stable of clergy spies. Pastors, professors, seminary students, and even bishops spied on colleagues, other Christians, and anyone else they could report about to their handlers in the Stasi. Thanks to its pastor spies, the Church Department (official name: Department XX/4) knew exactly what was happening and being planned in the country's predominantly Lutheran churches. Yet ultimately it failed in its mission: despite knowing virtually everything about East German Christians, the Stasi couldn't prevent the church-led protests that erupted in 1989 and brought down the Berlin Wall.

From the beginning of time, man has questioned himself as to where mankind came from. Obviously, we the human race are the creation of the Almighty God and have to accept the fact that we didn’t evolve from animals as others may say. Mankind is the greatest creation of God, and the way mankind has developed in technology is proof of this. As time went by, mankind found it hard to live in harmony and kept on fighting among themselves; this fighting led to the great war of revelation as predicted in the Bible. However, after the battle of Armageddon, mankind will finally reunite and live in harmony.
