The revival of Trinitarian studies in the twentieth century ushered in a new era of theological innovation. The renewed and dedicated articulation of the Trinity as a doctrine in its own right is indeed noteworthy, but more important and praiseworthy are the recent endeavors of theologians in integrating the doctrine of the Trinity with other Christian doctrines and with the many variegated aspects of the life and ministries of the church. Today, it is common to encounter the term "Trinitarian" being used as a modifier: Trinitarian worship, Trinitarian ecclesiology, etc. This book presents Thomas F. Torrance as a participant theologian in this integrative paradigm. Because Torrance argues that the Trinity is "the ground and grammar of theology," his doctrine of salvation is consistently Trinitarian. But how did he formulate his unique Trinitarian soteriology? This book attempts to spell this out. "A masterly survey of Torrance's deeply evangelical and Trinitarian soteriology. Drawing on extensive reading and a host of golden theological nuggets from his unpublished sermons, this book is a wonderfully comprehensive and compelling account of the salvation that is God in Christ through the Spirit. A book to be treasured, not just for its content and vision, but for the richness of its information and sources." --Robert T. Walker, Professor, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom "In this erudite and thought-provoking work, Dick Eugenio provides the reader with an impressive articulation of some of the underlying currents of Torrance's theology, which in the area of soteriology Eugenio elaborates more fully than Torrance did himself. Of particular interest is Eugenio's consideration of the distinct role of God the Father in the salvific economy, an area that is generally neglected in most studies of soteriology. Essential reading for anyone interested in Torrance, the doctrine of the Trinity, and soteriology." --David R. Law, Professor, University of Manchester, United Kingdom Dick O. Eugenio (PhD, Manchester University) is Assistant Professor of Theology at Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary in the Philippines.
