The primary problem with Torrance is that his many books/articles are hard to comprehend. He touches on many topics, does not fully develop each, he makes very broad statements, has little concrete Biblical citations, etc. Yet he has a great deal of substance to offer, is a highly original and profound thinker, is an excellent tonic for the overly-analytical approaches of today's church and seminaries, and makes major strides in instituting the cross-fertilization of science and theology. Also, like Barth, it is obvious that his theology is practiced, not just an academic study like too many theologians. My own surmise is that Torrance is so hard to read because he adopts and strongly emphasizes integrative rather than analytic descriptions. The problem with this is that everything is mixed together and the individual topics are not separately developed. For me, as I've read Torrance's works it was very fustrating trying to build understanding (but recently it has begun to jell).
Colyer attempts to prepare the reader for tackling Torrance's writtings by summarizing his positions and suggesting study strategies.Read more ›
