By Jacob E. Van Vleet

In Dialectical Theology and Jacques Ellul, Jacob E. Van Vleet argues that the paintings of Jacques Ellul is frequently—and deleteriously—misread as a result of inattention to the theological underpinning that governs Ellul’s notion. In a penetrating research, the 1st of its style, Van Vleet presents a important account of the theological constitution of Ellul’s paintings and demonstrates the determinative function that theology, specially dialectical theology, performs in a formal figuring out of Ellul.

Van Vleet deals an enormous creation to Ellul’s idea, his contribution to theology and philosophy, and the way his philosophy of expertise is either theologically knowledgeable and culturally proper. besides, this paintings situates Ellul’s theological and philosophical idea inside an immense genetic context, from Kierkegaard to the dialectical theologians of the 20th century.

“Jacob Van Vleet's synoptic learn of Ellul's writings presents a necessary counterbalance to the pessimistic interpretation so frequently encountered. certain, Ellul warned opposed to enslavement to human process and know-how. yet, no, he didn't condone a violent reaction. As Van Vleet's examine makes transparent, Ellul supplied for desire, now not according to politics and the kingdom, yet on a retreat from the search for the illusory merits of energy, social status, and fabric possessions, turning as an alternative towards the true merits of humility, love, and openness to the opposite. This publication merits the widest attainable readership.” —Randal Marlin, Carleton college
