T.F. Torrance’s Calvin’s Doctrine of Man in Light of the Barth-Brunner Debate

image of Journal of Reformed Theology

Scholars have recognized T.F. Torrance as a ressourcement thinker in his later work while overlooking his earlier historical studies. In this article, I argue that in Calvin’s Doctrine of Man (1949) Torrance presents a rereading of Calvin in order to advance contemporary theological understanding and facilitate the reception of Karl Barth in postwar Scotland. In that work, Torrance attempts to resolve the debate between Brunner and Barth over natural theology by reinterpreting Calvin’s anthropology. Torrance accounts for Brunner’s claims regarding Calvin’s complex use and understanding of the imago dei while ultimately affirming Barth’s rejection of natural theology.
