The second book in Stephen D. Morrison’s Plain English Series, "T. F. Torrance in Plain English" offers a clear and concise overview of Torrance’s scientific and evangelical theology. An introduction to his complex thought, this book examines nine major ideas selected from Torrance’s many volumes and essays. This is a helpful study of a prominent theologian, thoughtfully written and carefully explained for both beginners and experts alike. Arguably one of the most influential English-speaking theologians of the 20th century, T. F. Torrance is a brilliant thinker every Christian should be familiar with. Morrison writes with passion and clarity, offering a wide and deep introduction to Torrance's immense theological contributions. The subjects of this book include Torrance's scientific theology, his epistemological axiom (kata physin), his reformulated natural theology, the oneness in being and act of the Father and the Son (Homoousion), the Trinity as the "ground and grammar" of theology, the twofold agency (mediation) of Christ, the vicarious humanity of Christ, threefold atonement, and union and participation as the capstone of Torrance's thought.
