"This is an impressive in-depth study of the concept of kenosis
and its relation to Christian Theology. That concept
(`self-emptying') is central to a deep ethically-related approach
to understanding foundational religious themes, so this volume is a
very welcome contribution to the understanding of theology."-George
Ellis, professor of Mathematics, University of Cape Town.
"Through a deep and sound exegesis of the passage, the writer
takes the reader through several aspects of our daily life that has
to be affected by the kenosis. Seen through the lens of kenosis,
human rights, ethics, ministry towards the poor and all the social
struggles of our time are brought to light and given a new and
constructive dimension."-Dr. Lubunga w'Ehusha, Evangelical Seminary
of Southern Africa.
"I would agree wholeheartedly with you when you point out that
His kenosis should be the model and the motivation for Christian
ethics. The importance of this practical result of the kenosis can
hardly be over-emphasized, especially in 'Christian' South
Africa."-Professor emeritus Deon Thom.
" well informed, broadly based, strongly argued, responsible in
terms of conclusions-an overall laudable piece of research. I
highly appreciate both the exegetical and the systematic aspects of
the presentation. You have a definite ability to draw lines
together into an overall view. That is Systematic Theology at its
best."-Professor Adrio Konig, formerly head of Systematic Theology
at the University of South Africa.
