Item Description...
Every Sunday in Lambarene, Gabon, Albert Schweitzer delivered an outdoor sermon in French. Although never intended for publication, the sermons were transcribed by some of Schweitzer's listeners. Translated into English and in one volume for the first time, Steven E. G. Melamed, Sr., makes a great contribution to the field with works that characterize Schweitzer's simplicity of language, his emphasis on personal conduct, and his adaptation of biblical stories to the everyday realities of African life.

Covering the period 1913-1935, his sermons evolved as Schweitzer matured and became more attuned to his surroundings. As it contains what is most likely the entire extant corpus of Schweitzer's sermons in Africa, this book fills a gap in Schweitzer scholarship. It affords a unique insight into his own beliefs and the prevailing European attitude toward Africans.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nobel Peace Prize Winner  Jan 31, 2004
This book offers the reader a unique glimpse of a remarkable man who believed in the sacredness of life. As a philosopher, theologican, moralist and physician, Albert Schweitzer worked tirelessly for the betterment of humanity. Although he was faulted by some for his old-fashioned European values, Schweitzer demonstrated his Christian love by ministering to the physical needs of his black brothers and sisters. At his free hospital in Gabon, he also ministered to their spiritual needs. Here, in a collection of Sunday sermons, is a verbatim record of what he said to his patients and their families in simple, easy to understand messages, based upon biblical texts.
