A collection of essays, articles, and article reviews that arise directly or indirectly out of Torrance's involvement in the ecumenical movement.
"Ours must be the task of learning together again how to confess, like the early Church, faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and God in all its breadth and length and height and depth, and therefore in the overflowing love of God. Only in glorification of God the Son and in actual encouragement of the Gospel can we produce, as a paragon, a doctrine of the Church in which our differences are lost sight of because they are destroyed from behind by a masterful faith in the Saviour of men." - From the Introduction

For nearly 30 years until his retirement in 1979 he was Professor of Christian Dogmatics (Systematic Theology) at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. A prolific writer on many topics, he has published numerous books and papers on the Philosophy of Theology dealing with the epistemology of theological concepts and with the relation of theology to natural science. In 1976-7 Torrance served as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and in 1978 he was awarded the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. Having reached the 21st Century, he is still an active scholar and researcher.
