Raising Abel : the recovery of eschatological imagination by James Alison( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raising Abel is a theological exploration of a huge change of mind: the change which the apostolic group underwent as a result of the Resurrection -- and how that paradigm can transform the world today. Making use of the thought of Rene Girard, the author shows how the God who was revealed by Jesus subverted the violent language, imagery and expectations of the early Christians
Faith beyond resentment : fragments Catholic and gay by James Alison( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A re-imagining of the Catholic faith. Widely acclaimed for his work examining the fundamental themes in Catholic theology, in Faith Beyond Resentment, James Alison offers an account of Christianity that is moving, liberating, and deeply personal, yet rooted in Catholic tradition." "This is not a book of gay theology but of catholic theology from a gay perspective, addressing both those who are not gay and those who are not Catholic, 'people of whatever background negotiating the world of faith in the time of the collapsing closet'."--Jacket
The joy of being wrong : original sin through Easter eyes by James Alison( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On being liked by James Alison( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Being Liked is the transforming and joyful sequel to Faith Beyond Resentment: Fragments Catholic and Gay, which established the Catholic priest and writer James Alison as one of the most striking, original, and intellectually irresistible voices in the church. Alison invites us to let go of a commonly held account of salvation that is nonsensical, scandalous and damaging. He takes us step-by-step through a bold adventure of re-imagining the central axis of the Christian story, not as 'How does God deal with sin?' but as 'How do we take up God's invitation to share in the act of creation?'. All the while, to our growing astonishment and wonder, we discover ourselves as liked - not only loved - in the eyes of God."--Jacket
