Publisher's Description

In this early yet masterful work The Essence of Faith, by the philosopher of Reverence for Life, metaphysics and religion are examined using Kant’s theology as a background. No one can put aside this small book without feeling respect for the profundity of the young Schweitzer. 

Author Bio

Albert Schweitzer, OM, (14 January 1875–4 September 1965) was a German—and later considered himself French—theologian, organist, philosopher, physician, and medical missionary in Africa, also known for his interpretive life of Jesus. He was born in the province of Alsace-Lorraine, at that time part of the German Empire. He considered himself French and wrote in French. Schweitzer, a Lutheran, challenged both the secular view of Jesus as depicted by historical-critical methodology current at his time in certain academic circles, as well as the traditional Christian view.
 
He received the Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of "Reverence for Life" in 1952; this philosophy expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, now in Gabon, west central Africa (then French Equatorial Africa). As a music scholar and organist, he studied the music of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach and influenced the Organ Reform Movement (Orgelbewegung).
