Torrance, Thomas F. "The Tide Has Turned." Life and Work: The Record of the Church of Scotland (1984): 14-15; #1984-446
Inside cover: "Has the Urgent Call to the Kirk made an impact? What problems has it run into? How does it relate to the mood of the coming General Assembly and the general state of the Kirk? Three of the original sponsors and key Assemblyman James Weatherhead give their views" (pages 14-18).
The writers are Torrance, Peter Brodie, Johnston and James Weatherhead.
At the top of Torrance's essay: "What is the state of the Kirk today? And what happened to the Urgent Call which last year's Assembly commended, and which some members obviously welcomed and some very obviously didn't? More important, what (if anything) has the Urgent Call done or stimulated or revealed in the parishes and congregations?"
