Knitter's Models IV

Seeing Judaism Anew: Christianity's Sacred Obligation,
Ed. Mary C. Boys, Rowman and Littlefield, 2002
Chapter Jesus as the Universal Saviour, "127-137", page 130

Phan concludes his consideration of the four models of contemporary theology proposed by Paul F. Knitter: replacement, fulfillment, mutuality and acceptance.

The fourth model - acceptance - stresses the diversity of religions from one another and refuses to seek a common ground among them; rather it urges each religion to foster its own aims and practices.

It isn't clear to me why this model is called 'acceptance' (suggestions, on a postcard, please ...). It maintains the traditional confession of the church, but simply ignores the possibility of other people thinking or doing something else. Rather like an ostrich, some might say, neither confirming or dening anything else because it can't or won't see it.
