Previous studies of German Protestantism during the Weimar Republic have focused on Prussia, where a majority of Protestants lived. This study concentrates on the southern province of Wurttemberg. It pictures the struggle of a church trying to find its way in the new situation following the separation of throne and altar. While continuing the Volkskirche (people's church) tradition of service to nation, it sought also to be a voluntaristic spiritual community. There were battles over government financial support, religion in the schools, outreach to the estranged working class. It was difficult to adjust to the pluralism of the Republic. The author corrects some generalizations that have been made about relations between Protestantism and the Nazism. Some writings on the Hitler era provide background on the Weimar period, among them Ernst Helmreich's The German Churches Under Hitler (CH, Dec '79), and most undergraduates would find that treatment adequate. The book under review, a more specialized study, would be most useful to graduate students, but also to advanced undergraduates. It has extensive footnotes.-P.J. Bock, Doane College
