Prayer and Modern Man

$17.49
($24.00)
Description: ""The man of our time does not know how to pray,"" writes the French theologian Jacques Ellul, ""but much more than that, he has neither the desire nor the need to do so. He does not find the deep source of prayer within himself. I am acquainted with this man. I know him well. It is I, myself."" Out of this common experience, the prominent social critic and former resistance leader makes a searing analysis of man's alienation from God, and traces the reasons for praying or not praying. With razor-like statements, he cuts through the weaknesses of much traditional praying and, in the end, offers a strong and positive program for praying in today's troubled times. Endorsements: ""Daring, lucid, intelligent.""--The Library Journal ""Fresh, contemporary, and painfully honest.""--Pulpit Digest ""The work of a deeply and truly spiritual mind."" --The Living Church ""Ellul's vigorous thinking, honest criticism, and profound insights will challenge and inspire every reader on the reason for and the place of prayer in life.""--The Princeton Seminary Bulletin About the Contributor(s): Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), a French sociologist and lay theologian, was Professor Emeritus of Law and of the History and Sociology of Institutions at the University of Bordeaux. He wrote more than forty books, including 'The Technological Society', 'The Humiliation of the Word', and 'Technological Bluff'.
