Description

T. F. Torrance was one of the most significant English-language theologians of the twentieth-century known extensively for his curatorship of the English translation of Barth’s Church Dogmatics but also for his own prodigious theological scholarship. The complexity and astonishing breadth of Torrance’s output, however, have made assessment and appropriation markedly difficult. This volume seeks to rectify that lack of assessment through careful exposition of the vital centers and interconnections within Torrance’s theology alongside constructive appraisal and critique of his contributions to contemporary theology.

“Myk Habets has established a reputation as an energetic and dependable theologian who provides thoroughly researched reflections on some of the most burning issues in contemporary theology. In this thought-provoking volume on the theology of Thomas F. Torrance, Habets characteristically considers Torrance’s thinking and then constructively carries this forward in ways that certainly will lead to further questions and reflection as Torrance himself would have wanted. Readers will learn from Torrance and from Habets and then will be challenged to think theologically for themselves.”

“Recent years have seen a marked resurgence of interest in this key figure in modern theology. And rightly so—his work appears more and more relevant as the years go by. Habets' book will do much to clarify and advance Torrance's remarkable achievement.”

“Myk Habets has provided us with a constructive and critical account of T. F. Torrance's theology. In showing the consistency of Torrance's work on scientific method with his substantive doctrinal commitments, Habets reveals the ways in which his voluminous output is animated by a single theological vision. This is an important contribution to the growing secondary literature on Torrance.”
