Thomas Torrance

Thomas Forsyth Torrance (1913–2007) was a twentieth century Protestant Christian theologian who served for 27 years as Professor of Christian Dogmatics at New College, Edinburgh in the University of Edinburgh, during which time he was a leader in Protestant Christian theology. While he wrote many books and articles advancing his own study of theology, he also translated several hundred theological writings into English from other languages. Torrance edited the English translation of the thirteen-volume, six-million-word Church Dogmatics (germ. “Die Kirchliche Dogmatik”) of celebrated Swiss theologian Karl Barth. Torrance’s work has been influential in the paleo-orthodox movement, and he is widely considered to be one of the most important Reformed theologians of his era.
