Read full description of the books The Quest of the Historical Jesus:s/t: A Critical Study of its Progress from Reimarus to Wrede
Groundbreaking study that established the reputation of the famed theologian traces the search for the historical person of Jesus. Schweitzer examines works of more than 50 18th- & 19th-century authors & scholars & concludes that many of the earlier historical reconstructions of Christ were largely fantasies. This set the criterion for all subsequent studies.
"The best introduction to its subject, scholarly & urbane, a fine example of critical exposition, a mystery story on the highest possible level, enlivened by Dr Schweitzer's wit, & enriched by his effective command of simile & metaphor affords a wide view of the whole library of critical theology."--Saturday Review.
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.
