A re-imagining of the Catholic faith by one of the most lucid and exciting theologians writing in English today. 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’.
“A reflective and easy-readable book and an exceptional example of contextual and inclusive theology which despite being born in the midst of personal pain and offence, inflames liberating love and hope, encourages responsibility for others. James Alison is an excellent storyteller. His writings are always somehow inspired by his own experience that brings a heart-touching aroma to the written. At the same time, his reflections on biblical passages are amazingly insightful. This book is essential and exiting reading for anyone concerned with contemporary theology; for anyone who is not into theology yet, it will be an excellent first step to begin.” — nieszczarda
