Torrance's view of the relationship between theology and the natural sciences is based on the doctrine of the Incarnation, involving the patristic term homoousion, and the three ideas detectable in his work, namely those of contribution, compulsion, and reminder. In all of the three, ideas coincide with other concepts such as realism, relativity theory, quantum physics, Christology, contingency, openness, and rationality. The power of Torrance's arguments lie in three points: first, he is able to get the Christian Church involved in the theology–science dialog; second, he adheres to a realist position; and, third, because both theology and the natural sciences share in the same Logos‐based rationality, revealed in the incarnate Christ, both the disciplines are homoousioi, of same being.
