This article evaluates the work of T. F. Torrance as a critic of evangelical orthodoxy. One of the main criticisms of Torrance is the alleged separation between the Word of God as Scripture and the revelation of God in his work of redemption. The article acknowledges much of Torrance's concern, yet also attempts to show a problematic disjunction in his thought at this very point and to show a way to salvage and enhance Torrance's own Christocentric-Trinitarian theological purpose.
This article examines the views of Thomas Torrance as a significant development of Karl Barth's theology concerning natural theology, general revelation, and natural science. It first wants to make clear what is meant by Barth's rejection of natural theology on Christological grounds. Next, it examines how Torrance integrates natural theology into his Christology.
