For more than six decades, the brothers Torrance--Thomas, James and David—have had a tremendous influence on the theological world. They and particularly TF Torrance, have a devoted following world-wide and particularly in the US. Their high view of the fully human, fully divine Jesus is built upon the foundation of the Patristic writers, and the great Reformers from Calvin to Barth.

Working in both pastoral and academic settings, the Torrances have stressed the profound implications of Christology for the mission of their Church and the daily life of Christians. Today, a generation of their students around the world find themselves in positions of pastoral and theological leadership. The focus of this book is the person of Christ (christology), a subject central to the Torrance theological vision and one which has had great influence on the presbyterian church. The contributors explore the contemporary relevance of Torrance Christology in such areas as the nature of Christ, the atonement, the ministry of the Church, epistemology and inclusion in Christ. The result is a book that offers both a fresh introduction to the Torrance tradition even as it advances the Torrance thought along fresh avenues of theological exploration.

About the Author:

Gerit Dawson is Minister of First Presbyterian Church, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Review:

"These essays communicate a lively sense of the theological and pastoral cogency of what the Torrance brothers have to say about the person and work of Christ. For pastors and theologians alke, there is much here to stimulate fresh thought about the gospel."
Professor John Webster, King's College, Aberdeen (Professor John Webster, King's College, Aberdeen)

"The stunning lucidity of Christ's two-fold ministry of revelation and reconciliation as exemplified in the theology of the Torrance brothers is illuminated and illustrated in this collection of essays. This "Torrance reader" is not only a tribute to a multigenerational theological family but a compelling case for a truly evangelical theology that pursues grace into the very heart of God and follows it back out again into the hurt of humanity. A Torrance theology is not just another theological option, it is the very soul of theology, because it has both a beginning and an end in the One who is, who was, and who is to come. Here is what postmodern pilgrims have been searching for, truth that can be trusted and reality that shines through the fog of faith. These essays will renew and refresh the sermons of every preacher and rekindle in students their lost-love of theology."
Ray S. Anderson, Senior Professor of Theology and Ministry, Fuller Theological Seminary (Ray S. Anderson, Senior Professor of Theology and Ministry, Fuller Theological Seminary)

'[This work] is best suited for beginning students or pastors who share the book's goal of revitalizing the Church through a deeper understanding of the Triune, incarnate God and his gospel.' Theology, May 2009
