Publisher's Description

Revere life, and give yours away for the sake of servingothers.

As ayoung man, Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness. His immense talentand fortitude propelled him to a place as one of Europe’s most renownedphilosophers, theologians, and musicians in the early twentieth century. YetSchweitzer shocked his contemporaries by forsaking worldly success andembarking on an epic journey into the wildsof French Equatorial Africa, vowing to serve as a lifelong physician to “theleast of these” in a mysterious land rife with famine, sickness, and superstition.

Enduring hardship, conflict, andpersonal struggles, he and his beloved wife, Hélène, became French prisoners of war during WWI, and Hélène later battled persistent illnesses.

Ken Gire’s page-turning,novelesque narrative sheds new light on Schweitzer’s faith-in-action ethic andhis commitment to honor God by celebrating the sacredness of all life.

The legacy of this 1952 NobelPrize honoree endures in the thriving African hospital community that began ina humble chicken coop, in the millions who have drawn inspiration from hisexample, and in the challenge that emanates from his life story into our day.

Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness—and he achieved it bymaking his life his greatest sermon to a world in desperate need of hope andhealing.

    When I was a child, Albert Schweitzer's work in his hospital in Africa was well-known. 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.
