Dr Andrew Torrance

University of St Andrews

I am currently the project leader for Scientist in Congregations Scotland (www.sicscotland.org), based at the University of St Andrews. Funded by the John Templeton Foundation, this initiative seeks to encourage constructive engagement between the church and the scientific world in Scotland. I come to this position with a background in systematic theology, recently finishing a PhD on the nature of becoming a Christian in the thought of Søren Kierkegaard and Karl Barth. I have published a number of articles in this area and have a book forthcoming. Additionally, I also have a background in science, starting a degree in Astrophysics before transferring to theology. Lastly, over the last decade, I have been actively involved in three different Presbyterian churches (one in St Andrews and two simultaneously in Dunedin). This has involved preaching, taking services, ordained eldership, and leading various youth groups and Bible studies.
