Worlds of Discourse in Lindbeck and Frei

(p.63) 3 Absorption and Embrace
Toward a Generous Orthodoxy

Chapter 3 further complicates the alignment of Frei's theology with the work of his colleague and friend George Lindbeck. This argument explicitly takes up questions of theology's relationship to philosophy and other nontheological disciplines. It argues that Frei ascribed a regional (as opposed to an all-fields encompassing) grasp to the theological task without compromising the ultimacy of the claims that are its ground and goal. In addition to clarifying Frei's often subtle but important differences from Lindbeck, this chapter distinguishes his position from several other theologians broadly classified as postliberal.
