Revere life, and give yours away for the sake of serving others.As a young man, Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness. His immense talent and fortitude propelled him to a place as one of Europeaes most renowned philosophers, theologians, and musicians in the early twentieth century. Yet Schweitzer shocked his contemporaries by forsaking worldly success and embarking on an epic journey into the wilds of French Equatorial Africa, vowing to serve as a lifelong physician to Othe least of theseO in a mysterious land rife with famine, sickness, and superstition. Enduring hardship, conflict, and personal struggles, he and his beloved wife, H?l?ne, became French prisoners of war during WWI, and H?l?ne later battled persistent illnesses. Ken Gireaes page-turning, novelesque narrative sheds new light on Schweitzeraes faith-in-action ethic and his commitment to honor God by celebrating the sacredness of all life.The legacy of this 1952 Nobel Prize honoree endures in the thriving African hospital community that began in a humble chicken coop, in the millions who have drawn inspiration from his example, and in the challenge that emanates from his life story into our day.Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatnessUand he achieved it by making his life his greatest sermon to a world in desperate need of hope and healing.
