Space, time and incarnation by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

29 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Nicene Creed affirms that the eternal Son of God "for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven," it asserts that God himself is actively present within the space and time of our world. The philosophical problems that this involves are bound up with Christian theology, and form the subject of this short book. Professor Torrance starts with a critique of modern Protestant thinking, and proceeds to examine the place of spatial and temporal ingredients in basic theological concepts, and thus to offer a positive account of the relation of the incarnation to space and time. The inquiry is related to the work of the great theologians of the past, but is also relevant to theological thinking in this age of science. - Back cover

25 editions published between 1971 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ground and grammar of theology by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

20 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The futures seems to be full of promise and excitement. Certainly at no time for nearly a millenium and a half has the opportunity for genuine theology been greater, since the ground has been cleared in the remarkable way of the old dualist and atomistic modes of thought that have plagued theology for centuries. It is, therefore, up to us as theologians to develop theology on its own proper ground in this scientific context, if only because this is the kind of life and culture, and the kind of theology that can support the message of the Gospel to mankind, as, in touch with the advances of natural science, theology comes closer and closer to a real understanding of the creation as it came from the hand of God

Divine and contingent order by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

19 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the implications of the Judaeo-Christian claim for our understanding of the universe that it is contingent: freely created by God out of nothing, and having an existence, freedom, and rational order of its own while still dependent on him. Professor Torrance argues that this claim made possible the development of western empirical science, but that Newtonian physics obscured the connection between the rational order of nature and the Christian doctrine of creation. He shows how modern relativity and quantum theories have once again drawn attention to the significance of contingence, and imply that the universe is found to be consistently rational only if it is dependent on a creative rationality beyond it. He considers finally the disorderly elements in the universe, both physical and moral, and argues that the doctrine of incarnation as well as of creation is necessary to deal with the intellectual problems which they raise"--Bloomsbury Publishing
The trinitarian faith : the evangelical theology of the ancient Catholic Church by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

36 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and Arabic and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cutting across the divide between East and West and between Catholic and Evangelical, Thomas F. Torrance illuminates our understanding of the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. Torrance combines here the Gospel and a theology shaped by Karl Barth and the Church Fathers, and offers his readers a unique synthesis of the Nicene Creed. This volume remains a tremendously helpful resource on the doctrine of the Trinity and the Nicene Creed. The new introduction for this Cornerstones edition is written by Myk Habets, the leading Thomas F. Torrance scholar today."--

The doctrine of grace in the Apostolic Fathers by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

23 editions published between 1948 and 1996 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T.F. Torrance aims in this book to discover how and why there came about in the early history of the Christian Church the enormous difference that exists between the faith of the New Testament and that of the second and third centuries. He explores how the concept of grace is distinctively characteristic of every doctrine of the New Testament, and yet at the same time is the most sensitive to change
Theology in reconciliation : essays towards Evangelical and Catholic unity in East and West by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

18 editions published between 1875 and 1996 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dealing with the issue of church unity and the ecumenical movement, Professor Torrance reminds Christians in a collection of essays that any theology which is faithful to the gospel must be a theology of reconciliation
Space, time, and resurrection by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

23 editions published between 1976 and 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sequel to Space, Time and Incarnation. Professor Torrance attempts to set out the biblical approach to the Resurrection in terms of the intrinsic significance of the resurrected one, Jesus; and demonstrates that the Resurrection is entirely consistent with who Jesus was and what he did. The Resurrection is thus taken realistically, and treated as of the same nature, in the integration of physical and spiritual existence, as the death of Christ. All this is elucidated in the context of modern scientific thought, in such a way as to show that far from being frightened by modern science into a compromise of the NT message of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ in body, it actually allows us to take its full measure."--Bloomsbury Publishing
The Christian doctrine of God : one being three persons by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Trinity is grounded upon God's historical self-revelation in Jesus Christ. It is presented in this work as teaching which is implicit in the New Testament revelation and in the worship of the Early Church, rather than as a logical derivation from other aspects of Christian doctrine. Adopting an holistic approach, Professor Torrance explains the inter-relatedness of the three Persons - Father, Son the Holy Spirit - and their dynamic Communion in the Triune Being and Nature of God." "Combining immense academic range with new theological perspectives, Professor Torrance expounds in a rigorous way the basic teaching of the ancient Catholic Church and builds a significant bridge between ancient and modern, Catholic and Evangelical theology."--Jacket
Christian theology and scientific culture by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1998 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we react to the claim that physics must now be regarded as one of the liberal arts, for in its description of the universe it sets the stage for the drama of human life? If modern science has now become the dominant culture, how does Christianity look within it? What difference does the Christian idea of the contingence of nature make to science today? What difference does it make for Christian thought and culture to move away from the old idea of the world as a closed mechanical system of cause and effect into the new idea of the world as an open dynamic system configured by the behavior of light, the fastest messenger in the universe? These are some of the questions discussed in the light of James Clerk Maxwell's discoveries of the mathematical properties of light, and of Albert Einstein's generalization of the new understanding of light for a radically new and exciting view of nature that has made space travel possible and enabled us to trace the expansion of the universe back to conditions near its beginning. This is not a defensive book about science and religion in the usual vein. It is concerned rather with the deep mutual relation and respect of Christian and scientific thought for each other, and shows how this relationship throws new light upon basic Christian doctrines. This volume also warns against the dangers of a reactionary retreat from the rigors of scientific thought into fuzzy mythological interpretations of the incarnation, and calls for a deeper appreciation of the Nicene Creed upon which all Christendom rests

Church dogmatics : a selection by Karl Barth( Book )

46 editions published between 1956 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most important theological work of the 20th century in a new edition! Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics is one of the major theological works of the 20th century. The Swiss-German theologian Karl Barth (1886-1968) was the most original and significant Reformed theologian of the twentieth century. He was one of the central figures in the Confessing Church in Germany, which opposed the Nazi Regime. Barth began the Church Dogmatics in 1932 and continued working on its thirteen volumes until the end of his life. Barth's writings continue to guide and instruct the preaching and teaching of pastors and academics worldwide. The English translation was prepared by a team of scholars and edited by G.W. Bromiley and T.F. Torrance and published from 1936. A team of scholars and specialists at Princeton Theological Seminary have started revising the existing translation. The first step was the translation of Greek, Latin, Hebrew and French passages into English. The original is now presented alongside the English translation. This makes the work more reader friendly and accessible to the growing number of students who do not have a working knowledge of the ancient languages. This new edition with translations is presented for the first time in print. The new edition is presented in a new bigger format and broken down into 31 paperback volumes. - Publisher
