(p.2) (p.3) Introduction
Toward a Generous Orthodoxy

Jason A. Springs (Contributor Webpage)


This chapter introduces the overarching purposes that motivate the book. It forwards and explicates the book's central premise that unlocking the full resourcefulness of Hans Frei's theological approach requires sustained attention to, and meticulous exposition of, its interdisciplinary and conversational character. This book aims to provide a critical elucidation and expansion of Frei's theology that accounts for the range of criticisms his work has incurred in the decades since his death, and how new developments in cultural theory and nonfoundational philosophy during that period can be used to expand upon his approach. The chapter concludes with a synopsis of the central claims and arguments in each of the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   unapologetic theology, postliberal theology, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Karl Barth, ad hoc apologetics
