Nazi Oaks

Comments from Readers of Nazi Oaks

"Nazi Oaks has given me a whole new perspective on religion and the environment." - Steve Milloy of Junk Science

"This 405 page, 1,344 footnote text easily passes as a piece of professional academic scholarship.  More importantly, Musser definitely contributes something valuable to the conversation about environmentalism with his Pantheism versus Christianity thesis." - William Kay of Environmentalism is Fascism

"Many books have been published on the German National Socialist movement, few, however, on the 'green' underpinnings of the Nazi worldview.  Mr. Musser's book 'Nazi Oaks,' which tackles the issue from a Christian vantage point, is a definite recommend." - Carl Teichrib of Forcing Change

 "Nazi Oaks is a real eye opener." - Michael Doyle of Liberty is the Objective Blogspot

"While Musser's well-researched book is jam-packed with information gleaned from dozens of sources, the text is smooth and readable.  It explains the Nazis better than a shelf-full of 'offical' histories ever could." - Mike Gray of St. Karnick's American Culture

Nazi Oaks is one of those important books that is unlikely to get the kind of mainstream media coverage it deserves." - Alan Caruba of Warning Signs

"Mark has written an invaluable book for anyone who wants to understand how a rejection of the God of Christians and Jews led the Nazis to worship other, grimmer, false gods. It is not a book that radical environmentalists will want you to read, which is precisely why it is indispensable reading for sane and decent people today." – Bruce Walker, author and columnist

"Mark Musser's research into the Nazi elements in the environmental movement is unique and absolutely needed to understand current events. He demonstrates that radical environmentalism is an effort to control peoples' lives and that the Nazis used it for that purpose. Ominously, he also proves that the Nazis used environmentalism to target groups of people they wanted to eliminate from the face of the earth. We cannot allow government to acquire this kind of power again." – Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media

"Great read and very insightful." - David Pepe of the Ignorant Fishermen

"I found Nazi Oaks to be a fascinating read, and it is very well-written and researched." - Lita Cosner

"Nazi Oaks is a tour de force, patiently accurately unearthing the explicitly anti-Biblical worldview and philosophical roots of modern environmentalism in the renewal of pagan nature worship inherent in German Romanticism a la Goethe and Wagner, racism a la Haeckel, Existentialism a la Heidegger, and Nihilism a la Schopenhauer and Nietzsche. If, as the Bible says, good fruit cannot come from a bad tree, and bad company corrupts good morals, then it's time for Christian--indeed for all--environmentalists to take a sober look at the roots and branches of the tree on which they perch. Rev. Musser's book shows both historically and philosophically how and why ecologism bore fruit in Nazi totalitarianism, racism, and the Holocaust, why those dangers remain inherent in modern environmentalism, and why ecologism's worldview remains incompatible with Judeo-Christian morals. It also shows how and why ecologism led then, as it does now, to the corruption of science and its enslavement to political ideology. Those who read Nazi Oaks will be surprised, and shocked, to see how even many of their heroes were nourished by the sap of that tree, and how heavily European and North American environmentalism today remain tied to and ideologically predetermined by the anti-Christian roots from which it sprang. Thoroughly documented and insightfully argued, this book shows all the earmarks of having been written by someone who has become complete master of the ideas and the history he explains." - Dr. E. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance

"It is a good guide and helpful book." - Dr. Martin Erdmann of the Verax Institute

"Mr. Musser exposes the powerful religious and philosophical undercurrents that are sweeping the “green” tsunami over our political landscape. In a day of sound-bite rhetoric and fund-raising memos obsessed with the latest scary story of alleged damage to Mother Nature, we often are too overwhelmed to see the flow from big ideas to big consequences. As one trained in modern environmental studies and experienced in actual environmental policy regulations, Musser ably deconstructs the Third Reich’s green connection--a sobering exhibit of what happens when ancient Baalist nature-worship coalesces with modern totalitarian bureaucracy. This is a lesson that biblically green “creation care” must learn or suffer the consequences of ignoring it." – Charles Clough, BS MIT, MS in Atmospheric Science Texas Tech University, ThM Dallas Theological Seminary, Founder of Bible Framework

"Mark Musser has produced a valuable work showing the clear connections between Romanticism, the National Socialist (Nazi) ideology, and the rise of modern ecological religion. Nazi Oaks explains how romantic Mother Earth loving vibes are no guarantee for pleasant outcomes, for mankind or the earth." – Dr. James Wanliss, author of the Green Dragon

Nazi Oaks is "a tour de force that shows the Nazis for what they were; Green zealots dreaming of a Wagnerian utopia.  As such, they were the forerunners of modern environmentalists as well as eugenics.  Mark has now made the connections, explored but very loosely by scholars, between Nietzschean existential thinking and Nazism.  A must read!" - Timothy Birdnow

Wrath or Rest

Wrath or Rest

Comments from Readers of Wrath or Rest

I am very grateful to Mark for his labor in providing this excellent work.  It is unique and greatly needed.  The book of Hebrews has been at the crossroads of a heated debate between Calvinists and Arminians for a very long time.  The Calvinists warn that only those persevere until the end prove themselves to be a true Christian, whereas the Arminians warn that those who fail to persevere will lose their salvation.  In "Wrath or Rest," Mark clearly shows a third alternative using sound exegetical evidence found throughout the book of Hebrews on how God can severely warn the saints without endangering the certainty of their salvation.  This work is a serious challenge to both the Calvinist and the Arminian positions - a must read!" - Dr. Earl Radmacher, Th. D.

"Wrath or Rest" can be recommended to both Christians and unbelievers alike - to Christians because it puts the book of Hebrews into its proper context in biblical doctrine and might shake them out of their hidebound lethargy; to unbelievers because it will show them what the Christian faith is all about - Mike Gray of St. Karnick's The American Culture

"An excellent exposition of the middle ground between Arminianism and Calvinism.  Musser offers the best explanation of the difficult and seemingly conflicting positions in Soteriology found in the Scriptures.  A must read not just for pastors and teacher, but for any serious student of the Word!" - Sergei Chervichidze

"Wrath or Rest has been one of the most helpful teachings on the book of Hebrews we have come across." - Daniel & Stephanie Ice

"Having been fascinated with Hebrews for a long time, I found 'Wrath or Rest' an outstanding treatise - very enlightening and edifying." - Duncan Allen
