Read full description of the books:



Out of My Life & Thought shatters the old myth & allows us to glimpse the real Albert Schweitzer, a man whose moral example is as relevant & compelling in the 1990s as it was in the 1930s on 1st publication. Eloquent & heartfelt."--LA Times
Of the many highly esteemed books Schweitzer penned in his life, he valued his autobiography most. He'd become a legend & he wanted to remind readers that he was just a man, a man who had learned from many others. He'd been fortunate to be in the right places at the right times, to meet people of thought & sympathy. He wanted to report his debts to them. He wanted to clarify his reasons & methods for his undertakings & to respond to some of his critics. & he wished to honor something greater than he was: reverence for life. Reverence for Life became his life's motto, & it brought him pain as well as joy as he sought to respect how precious & unique each life is. He believed there was a way to live in the world, accept it, take joy from it--& who could know this better than a man who had placed himself so much in it, given so much for it & had been ready to receive experience as a gift to be thankful for.
"This fascinating volume is the autobiography of the world-famous missionary doctor, organist, philosopher, theologian & Nobel Peace Prize-winner, newly translated, researched & corrected on the basis of recently discovered material."-- Booklist
"An authentic 20th-century classic. Few books in our time have had a greater impact on the life & values of untold numbers of people."--Norman Cousins

Read information about the author

Ebook Out of My Life and Thought: An Autobiography read Online! Albert Schweitzer, M.D., OM, was an Alsatian theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician. He was born in Kaisersberg in Alsace-Lorraine, a Germanophone region which the German Empire returned to France after World War I. Schweitzer challenged both the secular view of historical Jesus current at his time and the traditional Christian view, depicting a Jesus who expected the imminent end of the world. He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his philosophy of "reverence for life", expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Lambaréné Hospital in Gabon, west central Africa.
