               in contributing to a doctoral student's research:
Investigating understandings of Philippians 2.5-11 in the world's religions

    LONG-TIME listserv reader/first-time contributor with background in
anthropology, comparative culture, sociology, theology and world religions is
in preliminary stages of researching the roles of this early church hymn and
relationship to the world's living religions as part of dissertation writing.
    WOULD greatly appreciate any discussions/contributions towards a better
understanding of this very difficult text, especially of the Greek word
"kenosis" and its meaning in the context of today's religious traditions. 
Thankful for your gift of any reflections, opinions, journal articles, books,
archived files, directions and/or related information during this struggle for
answers and insights within this critical area.
