The Life and Thought of Jacques Ellul
Offers a definitive study of both the life and thoughts of the French Reformed thinker Jacques Ellul (1912-1994). Last century, the extensive writing of French Reformed lay theologian and social critic Jacques Ellul (1912-94) shed a disturbing light on western society and challenged Christians to be faithful to God’s word by resisting the world. This major study draws on both published and unpublished material to provide the only available introduction to Ellul’s life and thought as a whole. Within the context of a detailed biography, it offers an original interpretation of both Ellul’s theological ethics and his personalist-inspired sociological analysis of our contemporary crisis of civilization.
