The mysticism of Paul the apostle by Albert Schweitzer( Book )

22 editions published between 1931 and 1998 in English and German and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Mysticism of Paul the Apostle, Albert Schweitzer goes against Luther and the Protestant tradition to look at what Paul actually writes in the Epistles to the Romans and Galatians about the personal experience of the believer with the divine. Paul's mysticism was not like the mysticism elsewhere described as a soul being at one with God. In the mysticism he felt and encouraged, there is no loss of self but an enriching of it; no erasure of time or place but a comprehension of how time and place fit within the eternal. Schweitzer writes that Paul's mysticism is especially profound, liberating, and precise. Typically, Schweitzer introduces readers to his point of view at once, then describes in detail how he came to it, what its scholarly antecedents were, what its implications are, what objections have been raised to it, and why all of this matters

Protestantism and progress; a historical study of the relation of Protestantism to the modern world by Ernst Troeltsch( Book )

10 editions published between 1912 and 1958 in English and German and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ernst Troeltsch focuses his Protestantism and Progress on two main areas. First, he centers on the intellectual and religious situation, from which the significance and the possibilities of development possessed by Christianity might be deduced. This leads to an engaging historical investigation regarding the spirit of the modern world. Troeltsch argues that the modern world can only be understood in the light of its relation to earlier epochs of Christian civilization in Europe. He notes that for anyone who holds the opinion that in spite of all the significance that Catholicism retains, the living possibilities of development and progress are to be found on Protestant soil, the question regarding the relation of Protestantism to modern civilization becomes of central importance. Troeltsch also distinguishes elements in modern civilization that have proven their value from those which are merely temporary and lead nowhere. He gives the religious ideas of Christianity a shape and form capable of doing justice to the absoluteness of religious conviction, and at the same time considering them in harmony with what has actually been accomplished towards solution of the practical problems of the Christian life. A new introduction by Howard Schneiderman brings this monumental work into the twenty-first century, and explains why its ideas are more important than ever, one hundred years after its original publication."--Provided by publisher

Einleitung in das Alte Testament by Ernst Sellin( Book )

1 edition published in 1923 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It will be my aim in the following work to combine, as best may be, the didactic standpoint with independent critical investigation. Any one who expects to find a compendium of all the views which have been put forward on the various problems of Old Testament Introduction, will be, in so far, disappointed. A book of that kind is already in existence. It has been my view that even the didactic aim could not be better fulfilled than by putting the reader in direct contact with the scholar's processes of thought and letting him take his share therein. In this way, instead of confronting him with a multitude of diverse views between which he must make an unsatisfactory choice, I have given him a single reasoned view, while of course keeping constantly in touch with the results of previous research. - Preface to the first edition

The quest of the historical Jesus by Albert Schweitzer( )

6 editions published between 1954 and 2005 in English and held by 13 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
