In Christ Alone

"In Christ alone
The truth of dogmatics
Finds its organic unity.
There is no knowledge
Of Christ apart from his truth
And no knowledge of his truth
Apart from Christ,
For he himself
Is the co-efficient of his doctrine."

Hmm. The words do not quite fit the music of the popular modern hymn "In Christ Alone"!!

They are by T.F. Torrance, and cited in a post by Mark Thompson on the theology of Torrance's teacher, Hugh Ross Mackintosh ...
