By Paul R. Hinlicky

Samuel Stefan Osusky was once a number one highbrow in Slovak Lutheranism and a bishop in his church. In 1937 he added a prescient lecture to the assembled clergy, "The Philosophy of Fascism, Bolshevism and Hitlerism", that sincerely foretold the darkish days forward. As wartime bishop, he co-authored a "Pastoral Letter at the Jewish Question", which publicly decried the deportation of Jews to Poland in 1942; in 1944 he was once imprisoned by way of the Gestapo for giving ethical help to the Slovak nationwide rebellion opposed to the fascist puppet regime.

Hinlicky exhibits Osusky's dramatic rediscovery of the apocalyptic "the mom of Christian theology", and his enter into the dialogue of the dialectic of religion and cause after rationalism and fundamentalism.
