While this chapter still features discussions drawn from the work of Recep Alpyağıl and Şaban Ali Düzgün, overall it takes a broader scope to offer a survey of Turkish theologians’ general responses to Christianity, skepticism, atheism, and religious pluralism. This chapter argues that in the Turkish theological context, these three issues mutually implicate one another, with only some exception. Among various works of Turkish theologians, this chapter engages the figures of Adnan Aslan, Mehmet Bayrakdar, Mahmut Aydın and the late Yaşar Nuri Öztürk.

Keywords:   Recep Alpyağıl, Şaban Ali Düzgün, Christianity, Skepticism, Atheism, Religious Pluralism, Adnan Aslan, Mehmet Bayrakdar, Yaşar Nuri Öztürk, Mahmut Aydın
