About-

This work addresses a pivotal and controversial area lying at the heart of T. F. Torrance's Christology. Namely, that Jesus Christ assumed fallen and sinful humanity and, living out a sinless life from within our alienated state, healed our human nature. This is a claim that is conceptually basic to Torrance's integration of incarnation and atonement, and thus to his soteriology as a whole. It's pervasive nature and its significance within the overall structure of Torrance's thought is thoroughly and sympathetically set forth. Christ's assumption of sinful flesh is seen to lie underneath a number of disputed areas in Torrance's thought such as the role, or lack thereof, of human responsibility, and the question of universalism. This work not only illuminates, but rigorously examines the claim that "the unassumed is the unhealed."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This detailed study focuses on one central feature of the Christology of T. F. Torrance: the doctrine of the fallen humanity of Jesus Christ. With patience, diligence, and insight, Chiarot explores the presentation and ramifications of Torrance's deliberations on this locus. The result is an at times illuminating, at times controversial, but always stimulating and engaging work, which merits careful and sustained scholarly attention."
--Paul T. Nimmo, New College, University of Edinburgh

"Kevin Chiarot here offers a critical appreciation of one of the most suggestive of Torrance's soteriological themes, namely Christ's assumption of our humanity in its profound fallenness. . . . Precisely in virtue of the care and precision with which he exposits Torrance's theology, Chiarot's valuable study illuminates some of the most vexing and abiding questions that arise at the intersection of Christology and the doctrine of salvation."
--Philip G. Ziegler, University of Aberdeen

"Kevin Chiarot presents here a rigorous and detailed study of T. F. Torrance's argument that Christ took fallen human nature in order to redeem it. This view stands in contrast to traditional Reformed theology, although Torrance argued that his view accords with the Greek fathers and with the Reformers. In this excellent study, Kevin Chiarot demonstrates the significance of Torrance's view on this matter to his overall theological structure and also presents some real challenges to it."
--A. T. B. McGowan, University of the Highlands and Islands
