Reviews

"Including work by established scholars, fresh voices, and newly translated materials, this outstanding collection of essays showcases the renaissance that is currently underway in Ellul studies. By focusing on Ellul's rich engagements with and reflections on Scripture, the contributors convey the highly innovative and expansive nature of his theological thinking. I highly recommend this book for all those interested in the relationship between Scripture and Christian ethics."--Michael Mawson, Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology and Ethics, Charles Sturt University
"This is a timely resource on an important topic for both Ellul studies and anyone interested in Christianity and the Bible. Ellul is an often overlooked theologian but is increasingly important today for his analysis of and response to contemporary technological culture. In order to understand this prophetic response, one must consult Ellul's use and reading of the Bible. Rollinson et al. have provided an indispensable guide for all of us."--Michael Burdett, Assistant Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham
"Jacob Marques Rollison has curated a collection of essays that exhibits that rare combination of freedom and intentionality present in Jacques Ellul's commentaries. The engagements and interventions here reflect Ellul's own lived approach to Scripture--not least waiting until his twilight years to write his Ecclesiastes commentary in hopes that it would aid his existential connection with Qohelet! I pray this exquisite entree will inspire others to unsettle convention as they interpret in freedom."--Tyler Atkinson, Associate Professor of Religion, Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas
