Overview In Space, Time & Resurrection Thomas F. Torrance takes up a biblical approach to the Resurrection, in terms of the intrinsic significance of the resurrected one, Jesus Christ. He demonstrating 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.
Publishers Description 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.>

Amazing Oct 5, 2005
Torrance is one of the too easily overlooked names in the challenging world of modern Christian theology. Here he ably demonstrates the life affirming and cataclysmic significance of the Resurrection and Ascencion of Christ by focusing on the redemptive, life from death, operation of the Historical and Eschatological Jesus (who indeed are one and the same) towards the end of rescuing and putting to rights human temporal existence and human spacial existence.
Thomas F. Torrance does all of this with the style of Barth and Van Til while making notable invitations to those outside of the Christian tradition and academia. He invites us towards a scientific theology.
