"Towards a Turkish Theology"

This is the title of a forthcoming book by Ziya Meral.
I reckon I shall, God willing, get a hold of a copy from the publishers ,
read and perhaps even blog about it.

Celal at Icarus Redeemed: I very much look forward to your review of this anticipated book, Toward a Turkish Theology. Out of curiosity, is the writer Ziya Meral - Christian, Judaic, or Muslim? And if Christian, of what confession or theological orientation?

So is the book available now?

Hello Semaphore,
Ziya Meral is a Christian from a Muslim background.

I will try to get a hold of the book. But since i do not live in Turkey it is a little difficult and may take some time. If i do i will review it here and on my Turkish language blog, God willing.

My Arabic is fine but I don't know any Turkish at all. I hope you will also post your review in English at this website, or at least drop me a line at my blog that your Turkish review has been posted so I can Google Translate it at least.

I have read some of the other material from this author and found it very interesting. I know a good number of ex-Muslim Christians, but mostly from an Arab background.
