Beginning to Know T. F. Torrance Dec 16, 2001
British theologian Alister McGrath has done us all a great service in writing this beautiful biography, of, arguably, the greatest English speaking theologian ever. Thomas F. Torrance is only now becoming known to an American public (all too often stuck on German theology and theologians) and this biography of the Scottish theologian does a great service by introducing us to him. A must read for all who want to know T. F. Torrance, the man of faith, behind, all the books bearing his name as author. McGrath is to be commended. And thanked heartily for his work here.
