The Kingdom of God and primitive Christianity by Albert Schweitzer ( Book )
11 editions published in 1968 in 3 languages and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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's ethical vision a sourcebook by Albert Schweitzer ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albert Schweitzer's leading philosophical idea was "reverence for life": good consists in maintaining and perfecting life, evil in destroying and obstructing life. For Schweitzer, all life is sacred, and ethics deals with human attitudes and behavior toward all living beings. Unlike most other moral philosophers, Schweitzer argues that knowledge of human nature does not lead to any unique moral theory. For that reason, he bases his ethics on much broader foundations, articulated in his philosophy of civilization and philosophy of religion. His central idea is that the material element of our civilization has become far more important than its spiritual counterpart. Even organized religion has put itself in the service of politics and economics, thereby losing its vitality and moral authority. Schweitzer's ethics of reverence for life, argues Predrag Cicovacki, offers a viable alternative at a time when traditional ethical theories are found inadequate. Collecting fifteen of Schweitzer's most effective essays, this volume serves as a compelling introduction to this remarkable thinker
