"Rarely does a man who writes an autobiography succeed in giving so much of himself as Schweitzer has here. The simplicity of the writing reflects the simplicity of the man; the range of topics treated reflects the range of his mind; the record of events reflects his incredible vigor and his capacity to accomplish the seemingly impossible...The closing epilogue deserves to stand by itself as one of the greatest expressions of a living faith that the modern ordeal has produced" (Hutchinson, The Christian Century).
