The Christian Doctrine of God: One Being, Three Persons (#1996-595)
This is Torrance's magnum opus. It is one of the most groundbreaking works on the Trinity in the past twenty years. It includes extremely important chapters on methodological questions concerning how the doctrine of the Trinity arises. It is a difficult book.

Trinitarian Perspectives: Toward Doctrinal Agreement. Edinburgh: T&T Clark; (#1994-573).
This book arose out of ecumenical dialogue between the Pan-Orthodoxy Churches and the World Alliance of Reformed Churches. Torrance played a crucial role in these dialogues. The book contains many discussions important to Torrance's doctrine of the Trinity.

Readers interested in the dialogue between the Pan-Orthodoxy Churches and the World Alliance of Reformed Churches should consult Thomas F. Torrance, ed., Theological Dialogue between Orthodox and Reformed Churches, 2 vols. Edinburgh: Scottish Academic Press, 1985 and 1993 (#1985-453, #1993-TFT-2).
