Against Method: Kosuke Koyama and Hans Frei

1. Kosuke Koyama

How do they know where they are going before they start walking? How can they describe the changing scenery before they see it? … With so much preoccupation on methodology, does not theology become a scheduled journey instead of a journey full of surprises?

from Water Buffalo Theology, 25th Anniversary Ed. (Orbis, 1999), x-xi.

2. Hans Frei

Someone rightly said, “A person either has character or he invents a method.” I believe that and have been trying for years to trade method for character.

from Types of Christian Theology, Eds. Hunsinger and Placher, (YUP, 1994), 19.
