Book Description

1 Mar 2005
When the Nicene Creed affirms that the eternal Son of God 'for us and for our salvation came down from heaven', it asserts that God Himself is actively present within the space and time of our world. The philosophical problems that this involves are bound up with Christian theology, and form the subject of this book. Professor Torrance begins with a critique of modern Protestant thinking, and proceeds to examine the place of spatial and temporal elements in basic theological concepts. He then offers a positive account of the relation of the incarnation to space and time. While related to the work of the great theologians of the past, this study is also supremely relevant to theological thinking in this age of science.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe only the final section will be of use 30 Oct 2011
By Wooders
Format:Paperback
This book is not an easy read. I found it hard going even though I studied Physics and Philosophy of Science at University. However, I persisted and I think it was certainly worth the effort.
Two Warnings:
1) The first 2 sections of the book assume you have a good grounding in the Platonic or Aristotelian views of the Universe.
2) The third section assumes you know at least an overview of General Relativity and Quantum Physics.
The third section is the real gem of this book, which looks at the implication of the Incarnation on Theology and Physics. Yet as this section is only 38 pages long, many may find this a very expensive use of £17!
Overall I found this an excellent and thought provoking book, but only tackle it if you already have some knowledge in the areas highlighted above.
