When ACM releases a book it makes every effort to make it accessible to modern readers, usually including an index for more scholarly analysis. This is the case with Schweitzer’s book, too. However, in some cases, the book in question contains ideas and reasoning that undermine Christianity. ACM believes that people should be well informed, and that Christians in particular should know about arguments and beliefs that are in opposition to Christianity. That said, it seems prudent in some cases to offer some kind of statement within the book that addresses such concerns. The purpose is not to answer all objections raised by the book but to put the book into perspective and hopefully guide even the skeptical reader into a more nuanced understanding of what they are reading. Below is the foreword that is included in ACM’s (Suzeteo Enterprises) edition of Albert Schweitzer’s The Quest of the Historical Jesus.
Below is the video and audio of a presentation I gave titled “The Culture of Death: What it is and How it Got Here.” It was delivered on Nov. 20, 2010, at an event sponsored by Nebraska Lutherans for Life at Concordia University, Seward, Nebraska.
The sources I referenced in the presentation can be found here. The doc file for the note cards I was reading off of in the presentation is here: [download id="6"]
A short story that I wrote, inspired by the ‘culture of death’, can be read here. [download id="5"]
One of my presentation areas related to life issues focuses on the ‘culture of death.’ Think: the holocaust, abortion on demand, eugenics, etc- how and why it happened in the first place and how many of those factors are still present today… and more than that, growing in influence and pervasiveness.
I have frequently been asked for copies of some of the source material so I have compiled it below and will provide more in the future. Note, these sources are not all that can be provided to illustrate or substantiate the arguments I make. These are merely the sources that I have chosen to integrate into my presentation(s).

The core truth driving the ministries of ACM at this point is that the transmission of the Christian faith in America is broken. To fix it, we ought not abandon anything good, wherever it is found, as all good things come from God (James 1:17) and he has given them to us.
For ACM, every tool is on the table… the arts, sciences, education, etc…
It will be an uphill battle, but ACM believes it is worth fighting- so long as it is the right hill.
