Sample text

45At once it was a simple decision that he saw as reverberating among souls. What Schweitzer saw in the work of those missionaries in the Congo may have been too simple, but it sufficed for him. He was caught in what he considered a “suffocating” and predictable life of hollow service as a bourgeois minister, writer, and musician.

It is near her thirtieth birthday on the day of December 21st that he usually celebrates with his aunt, reliving the holiday ritual of discussing Immanuel Kant and lighting some pine boughs in the fireplace. ”21 Now he has shifted his attention to Hélène, and wants to make her part of this December 21st ritual, even to replace his cherished aunt. He celebrates it alone in his mind, with the images of the fire, his work on Kant, and now Hélène.

Yet Schweitzer was also a scholar of the New Testament and used his mind to examine in detail all that had been said about Jesus in scholarly works. So it is a blend of heart and head that Schweitzer brings to Jesus, adding the element of hand in his work in the hospital.
