A learned, respected, accomplished man leaves a life of worldly success to serve Christ among "the least of these."
Albert Schweitzer was a Renaissance man who basked in the utmost respect of the world's intelligentsia. Schweitzer had doctorates in philosophy, theology, and medicine. He was a well-respected author, a concert organist, and a world authority on Bach. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952.
But he left a life of acclaim to pursue the God-given call to treat all life as sacred, especially in those places on the fringe-in Africa. In what is now Gabon, people saw him daily with his stethoscope on a distended belly and heard him nightly performing classical music on his piano.
In a time when many people feel small and inconsequential, Schweitzer's life is a testimony to the power of one person's sacrifice, purpose, and commitment to treat all God's creations as sacred.

When this book came out, I bought it, hoping to get to know him. I was disappointed that the book isnt more comprehensive, longer than it is. I wish Mr. Gire had gone more in depth with who Dr. Schweitzer was, what led him to give up his academic life, and do what he did in Africa. I hope this book will increase interest in Dr. Schweitzer, his work and the legacy he left.
