A Modern Saint
This is the inspiring life story of one of the most remarkable men of modern times. A brilliant organist, musicologist, theologian and philosopher, Albert Schweitzer, at the age of thirty, turned his back on the dazzling rewards the world offered him in order to serve his fellow men as a medical missionary in Africa.
It is a thrilling account of a monumental personal quest, enormous self-sacrifice and extraordinary achievement, told with simplicity, modesty and humor.
"His story has something of the aspect of a miracle, and his achievements a quality of almost epic worth."
-- John Haynes Holmes, N.Y. Herald Tribune

Read information about the authorAlbert Schweitzer, M.D., OM, was an Alsatian theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician. He was born in Kaisersberg in Alsace-Lorraine, a Germanophone region which the German Empire returned to France after World War I. Schweitzer challenged both the secular view of historical Jesus current at his time and the traditional Christian view, depicting a Jesus who expected the imminent end of the world. He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his philosophy of "reverence for life", expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Lambaréné Hospital in Gabon, west central Africa.
