Item description for Thomas F. Torrance: An Intellectual Biography by Alister E. McGrath...
T. F. Torrance is widely regarded as the most significant British academic theologian of the twentieth century. He is especially noted for his ground-breaking contribution to the study of the relationship of Christian theology and the natural sciences. He is unquestionably one of the most prolific of theological writers and is the most senior member of the nearest thing to a 'theological dynasty' that Great Britain has ever produced. Here, Alister McGrath, himself one of this country's leading theologians, traces the development of Torrance's theological thought and provides a comprehensive account of his life and career. Particular attention is paid to the important role played by Torrance in the English-language reception of the theology of Karl Barth, and to his pioneering engagement with the relation between theology and science. While making extensive reference to Torrance's published works, McGrath also draws on important unpublished writings and private papers. The book contains many unpublished photograhs, together with a complete bibliography of Torrance's works.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thomas F. Torrance: An Intellectual Biography?
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.
