What a dreadfully dark SELF-portrait?

All art and, all human communications are essentially self-descriptions.

Personally, I think Oliver's painting bears a passing resemblance to our very own Dr Myers... It's the beard.

Thanks for the reading tips - I will start with the two works by Torrance and move on from there [wife permitting].

I noticed some previous links to some audio lectures by Torrance but the links do not seem to work - are they still available?

I have just recently started to read Torrance and come from a conservative Calvinist background. I find Torrance very stimulating – especially on the rejection of dualism and the nature and implications of the incarnation. I am fairly new to such theological perspectives and would like to develop a dialogue with anyone interested! I have just started a blog at http://engagingtftorrance.blogspot.com/ called ‘Sparring with Calvin, TF Torrance and the Church Fathers’ – with the aim of stimulating dialogue. I have only posted an introductory comment but would, as further thoughts evolve, value any help from the better informed!

@Donald There's a TF Torrance Society for those interested in his work. Google will get you there.

Good call on the Kelsey book. Though I have heard it is beautifully written and a game changer, I have seen surprising little on it. Perhaps a book review is in order?
