Jesus and the City: A Theology of Technique in Jacques Ellul

Jesus taught, healed, and wandered in the Wilderness. But he died in the City.

Jacques Ellul lived a double life. On one hand, he was an astute observer and critic of the modern technological society and its penchant for efficiency and productivity. On the other, he was a prophet, deeply concerned about spiritual realities. Jesus and the City brings together the two forces that dominated his writing: technique and theology.

Linking four of Ellul’s seminal sociological and theological works–The Technological Society, The Meaning of the City, The Technological System, and ApocalypseJesus and the City brings to light the meaning of our shared technological and spiritual history: from Cain’s rebellion and the birth of the City to the New Jerusalem and the reign of Christ.
