God, Britain, and Hitler in World War II: The View of the British Clergy, 1939-1945

By A. J. Hoover | Go to book overview

gree of difference between the Allies and the Axis was very great -- great enough to justify a war leading to unconditional surrender. We will never attain perfect justice in time, but we must continue to fight for it. If we do not fight, we betray the eternal ideal that lies outside of time and informs all our moral insights.

This leads us logically to Chapter 6, as the British clergy explains the war for Christian civilization.
