Thomas F. Torrance, MBE, (1913-2007) served as professor of
Christian dogmatics at New College, Edinburgh, for twenty-seven
years and in 1978 was the recipient of the Templeton Prize for
Progress in Religion. Torrance was also coeditor of the Scottish
Journal of Theology.
Robert T. Walker, the nephew of T. F. Torrance, has degrees in philosophy and theology from Edinburgh University, Scotland. He currently divides his time between teaching theology at Edinburgh University and teaching outdoor pursuits in Perthshire.
"Nowhere else in T. F. Torrance's writings will you find the kind
of synthesis of the entire sweep of his dogmatics as you will find
in this volume and its companion volume, Atonement. Everyone
concerned with constructive systematic theology in general, or with
Torrance's theology in particular, will want to acquire and read
these books. They reveal the heart and soul of Torrance's
theological vision."--Elmer M. Colyer, Professor of Historical
Theology, Stanley Professor of Wesley Studies, University of
Dubuque Theological Seminary, and author of How to Read T. F.
Torrance: Understanding His Trinitarian Scientific Theology
"Torrance presents a full, deeply biblical account of the classical and Reformed doctrines of the person of Jesus Christ and contends that his hwole life is of saving significance."--Interpretation, July 2009
"Torrance's lectures succeed in setting forth the doctrine of Christ's person with a breadth of scope and depth of detail that will aid those who seek an account of why Christians regard Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world. Incarnation crowns Thomas F. Torrance's lifetime of productive service to the Church as a contribution of enduring value."--Nathan D. Hieb, Koinonia
