Dialectical Theology and Jacques Ellul: An Introductory Exposition


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 suggestion. In a penetrating research, the 1st of its style, Van Vleet offers a important account of the theological constitution of Ellul's paintings and demonstrates the determinative position that theology, specifically dialectical theology, performs in a formal realizing of Ellul.

Van Vleet bargains a massive advent to Ellul's proposal, his contribution to theology and philosophy, and the way his philosophy of expertise is either theologically trained and culturally suitable. besides, this paintings situates Ellul's theological and philosophical suggestion inside of a big genetic context, from Kierkegaard to the dialectical theologians of the 20 th century.
