nnn

Jacques Ellul is best known as one of the premier voices of the twentieth century analyzing the emergence, characteristics, and challenges of the 'technological society' - the growing and seemingly irresistible dominance of technological tools, processes, and values over the whole of life and the whole of the world. But the Bordeaux sociologist simultaneously produced almost as many works of biblical study and reflection as he did regarding works of sociology. In these studies Ellul delivered brilliantly creative insights as well as provocative challenges to traditional theology.

nnn

All serious students of Ellul, whether part of faith communities like Ellul himself (in the French Reformed Church) or not (like his colleague and best friend Bernard Charbonneau), have found interaction with his theological writings an essential complement to the study of his great sociological works. This conference was a multi-perspectival hearing of Scripture stimulated by Ellul's works.

Albert Moritz is the Blake C. Goldring Professor of the Arts and Society at Victoria University in the University of Toronto. He is primarily a poet; his work has earned the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Award in Literature of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Griffin Poetry Prize, and other recognitions. His The Sparrow: Selected Poems will appear in spring 2018. His nonfiction and scholarly works (some written in collaboration with Dr. Theresa Moritz) include biographies of Emma Goldman and Stephen Leacock, the Oxford Illustrated Guide to Canadian Literature, and two studies of sublime and picturesque landscape in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century prints and engravings.

Andrew Goddard is Senior Research Fellow at the Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics. He previously taught Christian Ethics at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University, and then at Trinity College, Bristol. Andrew studied at Oxford University, earning an MA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, a Diploma in Theology, and then a Dphil in Theology for a thesis on the work of Jacques Ellul, particularly his writings on law and politics. This was published as Living the Word, Resisting the World: The Life and Thought of Jacques Ellul (2002). Much of his current academic work is focused on sexual ethics, especially within Anglicanism and its structures. He was ordained in the Church of England in 1996

Christian Roy is an independent scholar of intellectual and cultural history, an art and cinema critic, and a translator from several European languages, based in Montreal. A specialist of the French Personalist tradition, he published his thesis on its origins (PhD McGill 1993), having previously identified its Bordeaux 'school' around Bernard Charbonneau and Jacques Ellul as an early fount of the critique of technology. He has just completed the first English translation of a book by Charbonneau (The Green Light: A Self-Critique of the Ecological Movement, Bloomsbury, 2018), soon to be followed by that of Ellul's posthumous Theology and Technique (Wipf & Stock). He is on the editorial committee of the Ellul Forum (ellul.org). Aside from articles on George Grant and many little-known Personalists, he has contributed entries on them to The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics (Greenwood Press, 2006) and Enciclopedia della persona nel XX secolo (Edizioni Scientifiche Italiane, 2008), in addition to writing Traditional Festivals: A Multicultural Encyclopedia (ABC-Clio, 2005). Many of his texts are available online at https://roychristian.academia.edu
