Torrance's vision of Theosis (deification/divinization) is explored through his doctrine of creation and anthropology, his characterization of the incarnation, his accounts of reconciliation and union with Christ, and his theology of church and sacraments. Myk Habets study distinguishes Torrance's vision of theosis from other possible accounts of salvation as divinization, and situates it within Reformed Theology, and informed by patristic thought and opposed to some constructions of the doctrine within Eastern Orthodoxy.This book presents the first critique of the theology of T.F.Torrance to focus on theosis, and presents a model of theosis within the realm of reformed theology built upon Western theology.
