The Kingdom of God and primitive Christianity by Albert Schweitzer( Book )
26 editions published between 1967 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,315 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

>Materielle und geistige Freiheit gehören innerlich zusammen. Die Kultur setzt Freie voraus. Nur von diesen kann sie gedacht und verwirklicht werden ... Hätten die Verhältnisse sich so entwickelt, dass ein bescheidener und bleibender Wohlstand immer weiteren Kreisen zuteil geworden wäre, so hätte die Kultur davon viel größere Vorteile gehabt als von allen materiellen Errungenschaften.... Diese machen zwar die Menschheit als solche freier von der Natur ... Zugleich aber vermindert sich die Zahl der unabhängigen Existenzen. Aus dem Handwerkermeister wird durch die Einwirkung der Maschine der Fabrikarbeiter. An Stelle des selbstständigen Kaufmanns tritt, weil in dem komplizierten modernen Betriebe sich nur kapitalstarke Unternehmungen halten können, mehr und mehr der Angestellte ... Die gewöhnliche Überbeschäftigung des modernen Menschen in allen Gesellschaftskreisen hat zur Folge, dass das Geistige in ihm verkümmert ... Absolute Untätigkeit, Ablenkung von sich selbst und Vergessen sind ein physisches Bedürfnis für ihn. Nicht Bildung sucht er, sondern Unterhaltung, und zwar solche, die die geringsten geistigen Anforderungen stellt ... Wie aber verläuft der Weg, der aus der Unkultur zur Kultur zurückführt? Gibt es überhaupt einen solchen Weg?< (Albert Schweitzer)

Albert Schweitzer's ethical vision a sourcebook by Albert Schweitzer( )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albert Schweitzer's leading philosophical idea was "reverence for life": good consists in maintaining and perfecting life, evil in destroying and obstructing life. For Schweitzer, all life is sacred, and ethics deals with human attitudes and behavior toward all living beings. Unlike most other moral philosophers, Schweitzer argues that knowledge of human nature does not lead to any unique moral theory. For that reason, he bases his ethics on much broader foundations, articulated in his philosophy of civilization and philosophy of religion. His central idea is that the material element of our civilization has become far more important than its spiritual counterpart. Even organized religion has put itself in the service of politics and economics, 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. Collecting fifteen of Schweitzer's most effective essays, this volume serves as a compelling introduction to this remarkable thinker
