"Incarnation, Creation and New Creation: What T. F. Torrance offers to a Theological Re-visioning of the Arts"
Torrance's immense contribution to the theology-science interaction could lead us to assume his work is of little relevance to the arts. Certainly, references to the arts are few and far between in his writings. However, Begbie will argue that his Christological and trinitarian integration of creation and new creation is of immense significance for the current dialogue between theology and the arts, opening up a much-needed way between an undisciplined aestheticism on the one hand, and a knee-jerk iconoclasm on the other.
The T.F. Torrance Theological Fellowship is a Related Scholarly Organization of the American Academy of Religion. Annual meetings take place on the Friday afternoon before start of the AAR annual meeting. The TFT Fellowship annual meeting typically lasts from 1 to 4 pm, including a 1/2 hour business meeting, followed by the annual lecture and discussion.
