From the back cover of his book of the same name:
“The continued attempt to make Jesus relevant to modern ways of thought has had the effect of obscuring him, for all the time we have been engaged in plastering upon the face of Jesus a mask of different gentile features which prevents us from seeing him and understanding him as he really is, as a Jew . . . We must go to school with Israel and share with it the painful transformation of its mind and soul which prepared it for the final mediation of God’s self-revelation in Jesus Christ, if we are ourselves are to break free from our assimilation to the patterns of this world and be transformed by the renewing of our mind in Christ, for only then will we be in a position to recognise, discern and appreciate what God wills to make known to us.”
With this purpose in mind, T F Torrance sets forth a devotional theology of the atoning work of Christ in • The Mediation of Revelation • the Mediation of Reconciliation • the Person of the Mediator • the Mediation of Christ in our Human Response • the Atonement and the Holy Trinity.
