On Being Liked is the stunning sequel to Faith Beyond Resentment (DLT), one of the most widely-discussed works of theology of recent years, which established the gay Catholic 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.
