    Book details

On Being Liked is the transforming and joyful sequel to Faith Beyond Resentment, which established James Alison as one of the most striking, original, and intellectually irresistible voices in the church. In this book he invites us to let go of a commomnly-held account of salvation and 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 sharein the act of creation?'.

James Alison, writes, lectures and teaches in the UK, the US and Latin America and is formerly a professor of Dogmatic Theology at the Universidad Catolica Bolivia, He is an Oxford-educated theologian with an influential and growing readership on both sides of the Atlantic. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review Text

  • By Wendy Allen on 13 September 2012

    This book has become the one I can't be without. There is so much in it, from a discussion of 9/11 and violence (cf Grad mimetics) to a superb critique of the theories of atonement, it stimulates new thought every time I open it. A must-read for any serious theologian.

    Yes this is difficult to understand in places and yet it is worth perservering. I think it offers insights to individuals, groups and cultures as to why we, as humans, seem to make the same mistakes over and over again. It offers a chance to re-evaluate the way in which we relate to ourselves, to others, to the world and to what is sacred/divine.

    I found that large sections of this book were impossible to understand. I felt that the author found it very difficult to write. Or, perhaps, this was written in a style of religious writing with which I am not familiar.
