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'.
