Incarnation: The Person and Life of Christ : The Person and Life of Christ


This first of two volumes comprises Thomas Torrance's lectures delivered to students in Christian Dogmatics on Christology at New College, Edinburgh, from 1952 to 1978. In eight chapters these expertly edited lectures focus on the meaning and significance of the incarnation The most readable and accessible of Torrance's works An invaluable introduction to the thought of Thomas Torrance and to the heart and core of his theological reflections throughout his published work A major account of the whole classical and also reformed doctrine of the person of Christ Interacts extensively with Scripture, making it a theological commentary on the whole Bible Available for the first time, it contains new material never before published on key issues and themes Illuminates and fills out a number of important topics he touched on but did not develop elsewhere "T. F. Torrance stands as one of the finest English-speaking theologians of modern times. Here we have the nearest thing to the systematic theology he had always hoped to write. Scripturally rooted, philosophically acute and always alert to the theological issues that really matter, this book cannot fail to inspire anyone who cares about constructive Christian thought in our day." Jeremy Begbie, Thomas Langford Research Professor of Theology, Duke University
