2) The Presence of the Kingdom


The Presence of the Kingdom is Ellul’s preminent theological work. In it, Ellul calls upon Christians to be a radical presence in the world, opposing the world’s will to death with a revolutionary way of life that brings the transforming power of the gospel to bear upon all dimensions of individual as well as collective human existence.  The Presence of the Kingdom powerfully shakes up our notions of the work of the church and of what Christian faithfulness looks like.
