Poetry Books by Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer Books, Albert Schweitzer poetry book The Kingdom of God and Primitive Christianity Authors: Albert Schweitzer
Published Date: 1968
Categories: Bible
This is the final theological testament of one of the great minds of the 20th century. Dr. Schweitzer restates and summarizes the revolutionary views developed in his earlier works. But this book is intended for a wider public, to whom it brings the mature reflections of an old man dwelling in the loneliness of the primeval forest, with the text of the Bible and little else before him, seeking to lead the reader into the presence of Jesus. Dr. Schweitzer presents a survey of the biblical belief in the Kingdom of God from its earliest development in Israel through the period of Primitive Christianity--from Amos to Paul. Previously Schweitzer had developed his views in works of technical theology, but here he presents a book which is purely expository and not polemical, of interest and value to every student of the Bible. At the same time he provides the specialist with the first comprehensive survey of his theological thought.--Adapted from publisher description.

Albert Schweitzer Books, Albert Schweitzer poetry book Ma vie et ma pensée Authors: Albert Schweitzer
Publisher: Wyss
Published Date: 2007-01
Ma vie et ma pensee est une biographie ecrite par Albert Schweitzer lui-meme. Il livre aux lecteurs avec pudeur, mais d'une plume vigoureuse, sa vie et sa pensee. Une vie de travail, d'espoir, d'esperance, de gratitude envers tous ceux qui l'ont aide et compris: Sa femme, ses parents, ses amis et plus tard, ses medecins, ses infirmieres et tous les anonymes qui l'ont soutenu de longues annees durant. Connu surtout comme medecin de Lambarene, il parle de son enfance, des annees ou il etait etudiant et pasteur a Strasbourg, de son travail de musicien (ou activite musicale) et du philosophe qu'il restera toute sa vie. Aux nombreux commentaires et aussi aux critiques, Albert Schweitzer repond avec clarte, calme et serenite: -Le fait que les circonstances de mon existence aient cree de tant de manieres des conditions favorables a mon activite, me semble une grace dont je voudrais me rendre digne.- (7 mars 1931)

Albert Schweitzer Books, Albert Schweitzer poetry book The Mystery of the Kingdom of God Authors: Albert Schweitzer
Publisher: Prometheus Books
Published Date: 1950
Categories: Religion
In this classic work Albert Schweitzer, the great Protestant teacher, lays down his thesis - which has shaken and inspired modern Christian thought - on the precise nature of Jesus' understanding of his own mission.All previous presentations of the life of Jesus are satisfactory up to a point - the inception of the thought of the Passion. None renders intelligible Jesus' sudden view that his death was necessary and that it was to be a saving act. Schweitzer departs from convention by making the Passion his focal point, which better enables us to understand Jesus' life. The Mystery of the Kingdom of God is required reading for those interested in the religious development of Western culture.Refreshingly different and challenging. -The Churchman

Albert Schweitzer Books, Albert Schweitzer poetry book Albert Schweitzer and Alice Ehlers Authors: Albert Schweitzer, Kurt Bergel
Publisher: University Press of America
Published Date: 1991
Categories: Music
Albert Schweitzer, the philosopher, theologian, physician, biographer of J. S. Bach and musician, and Alice Ehlers, the harpsichordist and great Bach interpreter, met as musicians. This book makes available for the first time a selection of letters these two great personalities exchanged between the years of 1928 and 1965. Although music is the main subject of these letters during the early period of their relationship, the letters increasingly deal with their personal and professional lives. Later letters reveal the help Ehlers rendered Schweitzer's hospital through benefit concerts, Schweitzer's concern for the future of his hospital, and his happiness with the growing world-wide acceptance of his ethical ideas. Schweitzer's last letter was written only months before his death.

Albert Schweitzer Books, Albert Schweitzer poetry book Memoirs of Childhood and Youth Authors: Albert Schweitzer
Publisher: Syracuse University Press
Published Date: 1997-06-01
Categories: Biography & Autobiography
In this charming autobiographical essay, Albert Schwenzer tells of his first nineteen years in Upper Alsace and his youthful discoveries of religion, music, and the inspiration of friendship. Even in his boyhood there were traces of what was to become his "reverence for life": as a boy, he writes, he managed to dissuade several companions from going fishing because of the pain he felt the deed gave to both the worm and the fish. In poignant vignettes, Schweitzer also describes his unhappiness at discovering that he had better food or better clothing than chose around him. Memoirs of Childhood and Youth offers wonderful insights on Dr. Schweitzer's childhood journey that eventually led him to dedicate himself to medical service in African colonies. This new translation also has rarely seen photographs of Schweitzer, both as a youth and as an adult.

This unique and highly-acclaimed small volume shows - primarily through Dr. Schweitzer's own words - how his philosophy of "reverence for life" developed, from childhood, as his long life unfolded.It demonstrates how the philosopher-physician-musician carried out his philosophy at his African hospital, in Europe and the U.S.A and how he inspired the animal protection and environmental awakening.It describes his bond with individual animals and how he coped with the paradox of the "will-to-live" vs. "the will-to-live."His memorable words, the sensitive commentary and the appealing photographs combine to present forcefully and gracefully Dr. Schweitzer's guidance to all persons troubled by disrespect of the natural word and all that dwell therein.This book, which was originally published in 1982, has gone into eight printings.

How many schemes may die

How many schemes may die
In one short Afternoon
Entirely unknown
To those they most concern-
The man that was not lost
Because by accident
