In Dialectical Theology and Jacques Ellul, Jacob E.
Van Vleet argues that the work of Jacques Ellul is frequently - and deleteriously - misread on account of inattention to the theological underpinning that governs Ellul's thought.
In a penetrating analysis, the first of its kind, Van Vleet provides a substantive account of the theological structure of Ellul's work and demonstrates the determinative role that theology, especially dialectical theology, plays in a proper understanding of Ellul.
Van Vleet offers a major introduction to Ellul's thought, his contribution to theology and philosophy, and how his philosophy of technology is both theologically informed and culturally relevant.
As well, this work situates Ellul's theological and philosophical thought within an important genetic context, from Kierkegaard to the dialectical theologians of the twentieth century.
