Abstract:

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.
