A Tribute to Thomas Forsyth Torrance
You are invited to submit an article, reflection, or book review for publication in the Fall 2008 issue of the Princeton Theological Review. This issue’s theme will be on the life and work of T.F. Torrance.
T.F. Torrance was born to missionary parents in 1913 and grew up in West China and in Lanarkshire, Scotland. Profoundly influenced by his teacher, Karl Barth, he would later supervise the translation of Barth’s thirteen-volume Church Dogmatics and become a leading exponent of his mentor’s work. Torrance served for ten years as a parish minister and taught church history and dogmatic theology at New College, University of Edinburgh from 1950 to 1979. In the last decades of his life he produced an extensive scholarly output on topics ranging from theology and science to Trinitarian theology and the person and work of Jesus Christ. He died in December 2007, leaving a legacy for Reformed theologians and the church at large.
