This book is composed of eight articles written by Ellul and not previously translated into English. The eight were chosen not necessarily for their clarity or power to convince, but because they are the earliest formulations of some of Ellul's key ideas.
David W. Gill
—North Park College
"Marva Dawn has provided a major gift to thoughtful Christians and social analysts with her translation of and commentary on these previously obscure French essays by Jacques Ellul. The articles themselves are full of the flashing insight and challenge that Ellul provided over an incredibly prolific fifty-year career. Dawn's translations are painstakingly faithful; her introductory comments and footnotes are a superb contribution — helpful especially to those who have read little or nothing of Ellul's work in the past. Few readers of this volume will emerge without wishing for further encounters with Ellul's thought."
Carl Mitcham
—Pennsylvania State University
"This book documenting the first springs of Jacques Ellul's thought in both sociology and theology is an exciting addition to the Ellul corpus in English."
Neal Blough
—Facult� Libre de Th�ologie Evang�lique, France
"Marva Dawn here renders an important service by making accessible the early Jacques Ellul. As he attempted to understand the post-World War II world, may his impressive analytical capacities and theological insight inspire others to similarly look at the 'new world order' that is presently being put into place."
