Example text

For Schweitzer, the clarity of his mission gave him strength. He is relieved to finally commit himself, and to leave behind what for him had become an anguished and abstract sense of what to do next. He continues to reflect, and these reflections and working out of his thoughts he does most comfortably with Hélène and in these letters. —And yet a wish for happiness? ”41 But this well-being, increasingly for Schweitzer, does not come from teaching, or even mentoring students, from being what he considers a bourgeois European intellectual in a dying and sick culture.

17 For Schweitzer, Jesus’s deeds and words are enough, without later theological and intellectual overlay. Schweitzer has ingeniously used his intellect to support what he believed in early life: the words and deeds of a man who captured his soul and intellect. As Jackson Lee Ice pointed out, Schweitzer had a strongly personal relationship with Jesus: “Schweitzer’s attachment to Jesus, which is at times characterized by an almost childlike simplicity, seems incongruous with his scholarly views.

This message would later contribute to his formulation of Reverence for Life. 19 This essence must be gotten at through layers of cognitive exploration. Ice seems to take for granted that historians in fact do SCHWEITZER’S PHILOSOPHICAL AND RELIGIOUS HERITAGE 21 this in order to appreciate the life of a person. The work that Schweitzer did to evaluate the Jesus scholarship in his book indicates that this is far from universal. Schweitzer’s work in uncovering the “historical” Jesus was fueled first and foremost by his deep appreciation of and allegiance to his life and deeds.
