"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'."--BOOK JACKET
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

With James Alison as the guide, discover that being a Christian is not principally about being good or believing the right things. A Christian is someone who finds him/herself on the receiving end of an act of communication and, just like the disciples, receiving a revised story about themselves and everything they thought they knew to be true. Using anthropology, a mimetic understanding of how desire and violence work, and old fashioned common sense, James Alison invites us to transform how we think about God, how we pray and worship, and how we go about being good Christians. Ideal for a new member, adult education class or individuals interested in discovering orthodoxy made fresh and the Christian faith made liveable, prayable and preachable.
