Jacques Ellul impresses me every time. This book is a collection of his thoughts and beliefs on various issues including love, the nature of belief, the destructive power of technology, universal salvation and more. Ellul is very precise and articulate in how he presents his arguments. He is not reluctant to claim (he does again and again actually) that what he believes is something that he cannot explain. Hes not teaching us what to believe, hes more showing us what he believes is true in a holistic way. The book is solid throughout and starts off with a brilliant quote:For me the difference between what I do not believe and what I do believe has a very different origin.

What I do not believe is very clear and precise. What I do believe is is complex, diffuse-I might almost say unconscious-and theoretical. It involves myself, whereas what I do not believe can be at a distance. I can regard it as exterior and therefore relatively well defined.

It can be the object of a taxonomy. What I believe finds me totally implicated personally. I can speak about it only as I do about myself. I do not believe in an object but in a network of relations which I cannot really expound because exposition demands a didactic procedure, the dividing up of realities that belong to one another.
