More About Albert Schweitzer
Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) won the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1952. Although he proved himself highly gifted in science, theology, and music, and as an author, Schweitzer dedicated the later part of his life to medicine and to a hospital he founded in French Equatorial Africa. A true humanitarian, he used his Nobel Prize stipend to expand the hospital and to build a leper colony. His other titles available from Johns Hopkins University Press include The Quest of the Historical Jesus, The Primeval Forest, and Out of My Life and Thought.
Albert Schweitzer was born in 1875 and died in 1965.

Novel Interpretation of Jesus and His Kingdom! Jan 21, 2008
Unhappy with the way Jesus is commonly understood, Schweitzer presents his radical reinterpretation of Jesus' life and teaching on the kingdom. Schweitzer sees the "mystery of the Kingdom" as Jesus' development of the thought of the prophets to present an "interim ethic" that not only anticipates the future arrival of the kingdom but actually brings it about.
I'll add that, though I have a master's degree in theology, for the most part I found myself completely unable to understand what Schweitzer was talking about. Reader beware.
