For the first time this volume contributes to the filling of a gap in scientific research: War-sermons which had been written and held during the First World War are to this date hardly explored. It examines sermons and songs from the years of 1914 to 1918 with a historical and theological perspective. The main focus lies on the evangelical sermons of the Alsace, while additional Catholic and Anglican sermons are being considered. Those war-sermons are multi-functional: They served for the foundation of purpose in different times and for the legitimation and propagation of political interests which had been provided by the church.

»Insgesamt wird hier ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Geschichte der Homiletik vorgelegt. Insofern Geschichte nicht nur zurück blickt, dient sie auch der Gegenwart und der Zukunft.«
