La prédication d'Albert Schweitzer 1898-1948

Abstract : To study the sermons of Albert Schweitzer today provides the opportunity to understand his personality, his life, his intellectual and humanitarian work in the light of his profound love forJesus. Living the call of Jesus, here is the ambition of Pastor Albert Schweitzer. He shows, through his sermons, the meaning of the teachings of Jesus in the life of each man or woman. The sermons of Albert Schweitzer reflect the tensions between two poles, mystical and ethical, which reveal the tensions of all human existence. For him, far from being a sterile tension, the mystical and ethical find equilibrium through their roots in the heart of the New Testament. He shares with us with a sermon, with an image, like a window open to the universe, the infinite love of Jesus. For Schweitzer, the Kingdom of God is where man prays with his life, and where he acts, according to his definition of consequential eschatology. Schweitzer always avoided letting himself be imprisoned in a dogmatic system. He wanted to build a sermon, where thought and action reinforce each other in the movement of life.
