Publication life cycle / General notes

Foreword by Robert T. Walker.


This is perhaps the most engaging and readable introduction to T. F. Torrance's theology around. The author writes from the perspective of having been a student in Torrance's theology class in Edinburgh when Torrance was at the height of his powers, painting a fascinating picture of Torrance in action as a teacher. The book sets Torrance's theology in context by placing it in relation to liberal Protestantism on the one hand and traditional Calvinism on the other. It explores Torrance's methodology; it offers insights on how he linked incarnation and atonement; and it also suggests how some of Torrance's ideas may be extended in order to result in an even more integrated and cohesive theology. This book is a must, not only for Torrance readers, but for all lovers of theology.
