Torrance, Thomas F. God and Rationality. Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 1997; #1997-611

Publication life cycle / General notes

Reprint with new preface. "Many readers may find it helpful to begin with the second and third chapters or with the last chapter, and then to return to the introductory chapter before proceeding to the rest of the book, although the philosophical and scientific theologian will doubtless prefer to begin with 'Theological Rationality'. Since this book is designed to accompany Theological Science and Space, Time and Incarnation, may I direct readers to those books for the treatment of some questions which they may miss here?" Preface, ix. (One volume of a trilogy on epistemology.)
