Thomas Torrance, China and the Qiang


A new book about Thomas Torrance, missionary and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, founder (with his wife Annie) of the Torrance theological dynasty.

Through his letters and articles Thomas Torrance, American Bible Society missionary in Chengdu, provides us with unique insights into the demise of the Qing dynasty, the turmoil of China’s Republican period, and the rise of Communism. We are also given a window into Qiang culture of the early 20th century, and follow Torrance’s quest to unearth more about the origins of the Qiang people, whose customs seem strangely reminiscent of some Old Testament practices.
