"This treatment of Torrance's eschatology, as it took shape during his formative years as a pastor, army chaplain, lecturer, and budding ecumenical theologian, lucidly reveals a dynamic corpus of thought animated both by Scripture and by the great events of his time. There is no comparable synthesis available for those who are just discovering Torrance, or indeed for those who recall, as I do, their excitement upon first hearing or reading him on the subject.. MacLean's book will send its readers . . . to Torrance much better equipped for a fruitful engagement with him."

"Stanley MacLean adds a welcome volume to the burgeoning corpus of theological literature on Thomas F. Torrance. Occasioned by great events of the twentieth century and grounded in the 'one extended event' of Jesus Christ, Torrance's eschatology is practical, pastoral, and ecumenical. MacLean carefully searches out ad hoc sources of Torrance's apocalyptic eschatology and articulates its elements with deft theological and historical sensitivity."

"Thomas F. Torrance is now receiving his due as one of the outstanding theologians of the twentieth century. Stanley Stephen MacLean represents a new era of Torrance scholarship, appreciative yet critical, using unpublished resources and placing him in his historical context. MacLean presents Torrance's eschatology as Christ centered and ecclesial based, unique among most eschatologies. Those with interest in both Torrance and eschatology will be very grateful for this fine work."
