A recent best-seller dredges up the old charges that Luther was violently opposed to the Jews, that he was a "savage anti-Semite," and with that, a "ferocious believer in absolute obedience to political authority.'' According to this writer, William Shirer, Luther's words and sentiments gave the rulers of Nazi Germany, Hitler, Goering, Himmler, words and a pattern of conduct to follow in their program against the Jews.
