JACQUES ELLUL: Essential Spiritual Writings
Jacques Ellul (1912-1994) was a French sociologist, philosopher, and
lay theologian whose prophetic critique of modern civilization and
technology won an appreciative audience far beyond Christian circles.
Yet this was only one half of his project. For nearly every sociological
book he wrote, Ellul would write a theological or spiritual counterpart.
This volume highlights that side of his work, with spiritual gems on
prayer, hope, and universal salvation. His call to reject the worship of
the state and to embrace nonviolent activism has an abiding relevance
