Thomas F. Torrance is considered by many to be the most outstanding living Reformed theologian in the Anglo-Saxon world. In The Promise of Trinitarian Theology, Elmer M. Colyer presents a collection of essays critiquing Torrance's work. It explores his place in Reformed theology and his relation to the Greek fathers. Both everyday life and scientific understanding are discussed in the essays within. The Promise of Trinitarian Theology is a hopeful step engaging the works of T. F. Torrance and the theology behind his words.

It will be of interest to anyone seeking an introduction to Torrance's thought as a whole, or to any of its various facets. Theology Today This is an excellent collection that not only provides insight into Torrance's work, but that of significant contemporary Reformed theologians. This book should be essential reading for all interested in contemporary Reformed theology, the influence of Karl Barth, historical theology, and the work of one of its most vigorous proponents. Calvin Theological Journal Every young theology student should read this fascinating volume, if for no other reason than to clarify the foundational issues facing the scholarship of the twenty-first century as it begins its encounter with a post-modern world. Southwestern Journal Of Theology The essays provide a rich introduction to Torrance and his faith, his place in the Reformed tradition, and many focuses of his work. The book affords a reliable and accessible account of the range of Torrance's thought. -- Daniel W. Hardy, University of Cambridge
