Main Title

Ecclesiological Highs and Lows: Thomas F. Torrance's Ecclesiological Influence on Ray S. Anderson

Abstract

This paper examines highlights of the ecclesiologies of Thomas F. Torrance and his student Ray S. Anderson. Torrance’s ecclesiology exhibits traits commonly understood as “high church” while Anderson’s ecclesiology can be characterized as “low church.” Yet Torrance and Anderson develop their respective ecclesiologies by way of common Christological and Pneumatological commitments, and do so in ways that allow them to ?differ from conventional ?high? and ?low? church ecclesiologies. Torrance?'s theological influence on And?erson'?s ecclesiology presents a fertile case study ??for both ecclesiology and theological method.
