By Yukio Phillips on November 4, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Reverence For Life is a powerful book by Albert Schweitzer.

Why is it powerful?

This is a book of Sermons made from the early 1900s. The Topics covered were

How to be true to yourself, The Courage of Action, Overcoming Death, and Peace of God in our life,etc.

He explained the power of Christ in simple yet powerful ways. My favorite passage of the book is "To this day, Christ is a power in all who from their hearts accept him as Savior. The power you have within is invisible from the outside.From all bitter conflicts you shall arise strengthened and renewed. Nothing will harm you."

I loved this passage because in this day and time to know the love of God is important to joy and hope in our life. When problems come about in our life, it's comforting to know that a power that is available to all of us can withstand the any turmoil. It's up to us to trust and know for ourselves. Reverence for Life helps you to want to know God more and have a relationship with God. This book is excellent for those who want comfort from problems that life brings our way. A sure way to learn the peace of God.

First time Schweitzer readers should start here. I was blown away by the imagery and attention to fine sermon-writing in his collection of sermons.
The love of God and His deep love for man stand at the heart of these sermons.
Writing during the heart of WW1 and in the surrounding time, he spoke to crowds who had little reason for hope, and had big questions about God and scripture. You'll see little manifestations of his unique take on scripture, the devil, and the historical Jesus.
I suggest reading N.T. Wrights commentary on Schweitzer in the beginning of Jesus and the Victory of God. Schweitzer lived before some significant discoveries were made in New Testament studies, so he was incapable of reaching certain conclusions we can now make today because of our wider access to historical documents and evidence. Despite all this, you can see the Spirit's working in his writing and the good and love that was being expressed through it, even in some mark-missing.
Schweitzer was by far a brilliant man, gifted in writing, speaking, acts of altruism and philanthropy, and even playing the organ.
Be Well

Excellente book from one of the biggest man of our Era. The life of Schweitzer, musician, biologist, theologian, philantropist, disciple of Jesus Christ above, beyond and before anything else, is remarkable.
