"Elmer Coyler has written the long-needed American introduction to the life and thought of Thomas Torrance in this brilliant and wide-ranging work. The author takes the reader into the mind of a unique theologian who has earned the esteem of natural scientists for his contribution to their discipline and of theologians for his profound treatment of trinitarian and christological doctrine, as well as for his faithful translation and interpretation of Barth's Church Dogmatics. The book will greatly help to give Torrance the attention he deserves on this side of the Atlantic."
--Gabriel Fackre, Abbot Professor of Christian Theology Emeritus, Andover Newton Theological School
"T. F. Torrance is the most important English-speaking theologian of the last fifty years, yet until now we have had no full-scale account of his work. Elmer colyer has done great service by entering into the inner depths of Torrance's theology in order to bring it to coherent expression in a systematic and thorough way. This careful and sympathetic study deserves to be widely read."
--Andrew Purves, Hugh Thomson Kerr Professor of Pastoral Theology, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
"This is probably the best concise introduction to the whole sweep of Torrance's thought that is at present available. It integrates the biblical, patristic, and dogmatic dimensions in Torrance's treatment of the classic themes of Christian doctrine and so gives most helpful orientation both in the themes themselves and in Torrance's later work--which will assist readers in undertaking further study of their own."
--Alasdair Heron, Chair of Reformed Theology, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany
"Elmer colyer's faithful exposition will serve as an invaluable resource for all seeking entry into Torrance's thoughts. His careful systematization sheds light on fundamental issues in Torrance's theology that have been missed by previous commentators. This volume will be of great help in rendering more accessible this unjustly neglected corpus of theological work."
--P. Mark Achtemeier, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary
"Elmer colyer provides a definitive introduction that not only smoothes the way for beginners but also clarifies questions of interest to much more experienced readers. colyer's own theological insight allows him to pull together various threads in Torrance's work and highlight its unity and originality. This masterful introduction to Torrance marks colyer both as a leading interpreter of Torrance and as a significant thinker on his own right."
