David Wishart Torrance (born 22 June 1924), commonly known as David W. Torrance, is a retired Church of Scotland minister and part of the well-known Torrance family of theologians and Christian ministers. He is the youngest of six children to Rev Thomas Torrance (1871-1959) and Annie Elizabeth Torrance (1883-1980), both missionaries to Chengdu, Sichuan of West China. Like his two brothers, Thomas F. Torrance and James B. Torrance, David became a church minister in the Church of Scotland. Unlike his two brothers, he did not go onto academic work. David continued in church ministry until his retirement in 1991.[1][2]
