About-

This striking collection of scholarly essays highlights the hermeneutic contribution of the French theologian and sociologist Jacques Ellul, revealing him to be one of the twentieth century’s most creative and insightful readers of the Bible. With a breadth of contributors ranging from established biblical scholars and theologians to pastoral practitioners, from top Ellul scholars to emerging voices—and including six first-time English translations of Ellul’s own articles—this volume not only provides a detailed overview of Ellul’s biblical approach but also constitutes a crucial moment in Ellul’s theological reception. This book counts as a clear demonstration that the full potential of Ellul’s theological interpretation of Scripture to rejuvenate and reconfigure contemporary biblical hermeneutics has yet to be seen.

Endorsements & 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 entrée will inspire others to unsettle convention as they interpret in freedom.”

—Tyler Atkinson, Associate Professor of Religion, Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas
