This companion volume to T. F. Torrance's Incarnation: The Person and Life of Christ presents the material on the work of Christ, centered in the atonement, given originally in his lectures delivered to his students in Christian Dogmatics on Christology at New college, Edinburgh, from 1952-1978.
^^Like the first volume, the original lecture matierial has been expertly edited by Robert Walker, complete with cross-reference to Torrance's other works. Readers will find this the most readable work of Torrance and, together with Incarnation, the closest to a systematic theology we have from this eminent theologian.^
In 'Atonement', Thomas F. Torrance shows how Jesus Christ brings his work of salvation to its climax in his atoning death on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension in our humanity, and the sending of the Spirit. The union of God and humanity begun at Bethlehem comes to fruition at Pentecost. United to him, through the Spirit, the church waits expectantly for his coming again when the salvation already complete in his person will be actualized in the redemption of all creation.
Robert T. Walker has degrees in philosophy and theology from Edinburgh University, Scotland. As T. F. Torrance's nephew, Walker has gained an intimate understanding of Torrance's theology, studying under him and hearing these lectures given in person. He currently divides his time between teaching theology at Edinburgh University and teaching outdoor pursuits in Perthshire.He has edited two volumes of T.F. Torrance Atonement: The Person and Work of Christ and Incarnation: The Person and Life of Christ .

Walker is Incarnation: The Person and Life of Christ. and Atonement: The Person and Work of Christ
