Knowledge of the Self-Revealing God in the Thought of Thomas Forsyth Torrance


John Douglas Morrison and Liberty University

This work examines Thomas Forsyth Torrance's concern for the modern «re-entrenchement of dualism» as it has negatively affected the Christian faith and the realist knowledge of God in Christ. Additionally, an analysis is made of Torrance's program to faithfully restore theological thinking, theological science, and true objectivity out of the Christocentric-Trinitarian self-disclosure of God via the modern return to critical realist epistemology in the physical sciences (e.g., Einstein, Polanyi). The study concludes with a critical examination of the adequacy and completeness of Torrance's endeavor (the problem of residual dualism) in the light of his own theological and redemptive concerns.
