May 22, 2015


Jacques Ellul

This week marked the anniversary of the death of Jacques Ellul….

Jacques Ellul was one of the keenest and most provocative Christian thinkers of the 20th century.

In remembrance of him, we offer this introductory reading guide, which highlights his most important books and suggests an order in which to read them.


4) Understanding Jacques Ellul:

By Jeffrey Greenman Noah Toly and Read Schuchardt


This book, of course, is not by Ellul, but having read the three books above, which help orient one to the major themes in Ellul’s work, this book brings together and overviews all of Ellul’s work and provides the reader with a framework for understanding his thought. It also is deeply biographical, emphasizing how Ellul’s writings flowed out of his life experiences.

BOOK 4 of 7
