More About Albert Schweitzer
Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952. While still a young man he demonstrated extraordinary abilities in a wide range of pursuits, including science, theology, and music. In 1908 he published his magisterial study of the life and works of Johann Sebastian Bach. He studied medicine from 1905 to 1913 at the University of Strasbourg, then founded a hospital in French Equatorial Africa, where he spent most of the remainder of his life. Schweitzer used his Nobel Prize stipend to expand the hospital and to build a leper colony. His book The Primeval Forest is also available from Johns Hopkins.
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.
