His immense talentand fortitude propelled him to a place as one of Europe's most renownedphilosophers, theologians, and musicians in the early twentieth century. YetSchweitzer shocked his contemporaries by forsaking worldly success andembarking on an epic journey into the wildsof French Equatorial Africa, vowing to serve as a lifelong physician to œtheleast of these in a mysterious land rife with famine, sickness, and superstition.Enduring hardship, conflict, andpersonal struggles, he and his beloved wife, Hane, becameGerman prisoners of war during WWI, and Hane later battled persistent illnesses.Ken Gire's page-turning,novelesque narrative sheds new light on Schweitzer's faith-in-action ethic andhis commitment to honor God by celebrating the sacredness of all life.The legacy of this 1952 NobelPrize honoree endures in the thriving African hospital community that began ina humble chicken coop, in the millions who have drawn inspiration from hisexample, and in the challenge that emanates from his life story into our day. Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatnessand he achieved it bymaking his life his greatest sermon to a world in desperate need of hope andhealing
