Notes: Translation of l'Espérance oubliée.
Description: xiii, 306 pages ; 22 cm
Contents: The "abandonment" that Ellul writes of is the withdrawal of God, and an analysis of what happens in a society where the presence of God is not evident, and the word of God is not heard. "Abandonment" is probably an unfortunate term to use; Ellul is referring to the real spiritual condition of God's "hiddenness" which is discussed frequently in the Psalms. Ellul points out that a society in which the voice of God is silent (or not heeded) bears certain traits: "death of the word" (i.e., language become content with no meaning); "an age of scorn" (i.e., to condemn another person to complete and final sterility; to destroy the honor an dignity of another such that they have no future hope of making a contribution --
this trait in particular is true of contemporary politics, both left and right...the "hate Bush" and "hate Clinton" vitriol that preceded it are perfect examples of what Ellul writes about in regard to "scorn"); mediocrity enveloping the church (i.e., no evidence of power and glory in the church, no evidence of God being active, the church producing only what man himself can produce through his best efforts); and the like.
Other Titles: Espérance oubliée.
Responsibility: by Jacques Ellul ; translated by C. Edward Hopkin.
