    This bibliographical essay by Elmer Colyer is a reader's guide to the publications of Thomas F. Torrance. The essay covers both primary and secondary literature in relation to all of the main themes of Torrance's theology and also his life.

    The T. F. Torrance Theological Fellowship sponsors two bibliographies, one of Torrance Sources and the other of Torrance Studies. They are research tools to promote scholarship related to the Torrance tradition. 
  • Studies
    This Studies bibliography includes academic secondary sources relevant to the Fellowship's Mission. It includes book reviews and items of any format, including audio and video. Notices of forthcoming works and newly published works are welcomed. This bibliography represents the collective effort of members and officers of the Fellowship.
