From the Editors

Kemal Ataman, Turgay Gündüz


(First paragraph)

In this issue of Ilahiyat Studies we present four articles and seven carefully selected books, reviewed by well-qualified reviewers in their respective fields.
The first paper in the issue is “Kenosis (Self-Limitation of God): A Philosophical and Theological Approach” by Hasan Özalp. The arti-cle focuses on an age-old problem of the theistic concept of God and its relation to the issue of the absolute perfection of God and related topics. In his attempt to elucidate the problem of kenosis, the author presents a careful analysis of some of the leading scholars in the field with different religious, philosophical, and cultural backgrounds. As the author makes it clear, the article raises more questions than answers, which will invite other scholars to be part of the debate.
