"Schweitzer's great work is probably the most important single contribution to the notable increase in the appreciation and understanding of J.S. Bach in recent years. Equally valuable aesthetically and practically, it reflects the wide outlook on life and art which the remarkable calibre of its author's mind makes possible, treating its subject from the standpoint not of a single art, but of art and science in general." -- Provided by publisher

The Kingdom of God and primitive Christianity by Albert Schweitzer( Book )

31 editions published between 1967 and 2017 in German and English and held by 1,337 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( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The philosophy of Albert Schweitzer has proved widely influential in modern thinking, especially in the field of ethics. His leading ethical idea can be summarized in the phrase "reverence for life"--Namely, that good consists in maintaining and perfecting life, and evil consists in destroying and obstructing life. For Schweitzer, all life is sacred. Ethics thus deals with human attitudes and behavior toward all living beings. Unlike many moral philosophers, Schweitzer argues that knowledge of human nature does not provide a sufficient foundation for any adequate moral theory. That is why he bases his ethics on much broader foundations, articulated in his philosophy of civilization and the philosophy of religion. Schweitzer argues that the material aspect of our civilization has become far more important than its spiritual counterpart. Even organized religion has put itself in the service of politics and economy, 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. Schweitzer's robust and un-dogmatic idealism may offer the best antidote to the prevailing relativism and nihilism of the postmodern epoch. His ethical vision directs us toward a new way of building a more just and more peaceful world. Collecting sixteen of Schweitzer's most effective essays, this volume serves as a compelling introduction to this remarkable thinker and humanist."--Publisher's description

The quest of the historical Jesus by Albert Schweitzer( Book )

17 editions published between 1922 and 2015 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this revised translation and retrieval of the full text of the revised German edition, Schweitzer describes and critiques 18th and 19th century attempts at retrieving the "Jesus of history" and stands at the crossroads of the 19th and 20th centuries to bring closure to the former, and to open the latter for New Testament scholarship. Schweitzer saw the problems of historiography, theology, and politics in the ways the issues were formulated-and the answers proposed-and refocused attention on Jesus' "eschatology" in a way abandoned by his predecessors. Issues of the messianic secret, the nature of the kingdom of God, and Jesus' mission are addressed
