Jacques Ellul, Christian Anarchist

Jacques Ellul, is primarily known as a Theologian. However, in 1988 he published a book entitled Anarchie et Christianisme, made available in the U.S. in 1991 by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In this book, Ellul lays out his definition and understanding of Anarchism, and explains why he admires the likes of Bakunin and the 1880-1900 Anarcho-Syndicalists. While stating that he does not believe Anarchism to be a realistically attainable goal, Ellul considers Anarchism among the most admirable of goals.
