This new book from James Alison has all the brilliance, wit and panache thathave made him one of the most influential contemporary Catholic writers.Celebrated for his firm but gentle insistence on facing down currentecclesiastical teaching on homosexuality with the question, 'Yes, but is ittrue?', and his wry observations as the church flails around on gay issues,Alison is also admired and enjoyed for the freshness and verve of hisinterpretations of scripture, for his dazzling word play and teasingconnections, surprises and reversals.Alison develops the implications for theology and religion of the insights ofthe French literary critic and philosopher René Girard, which expose theviolence hidden at the heart of our culture. He shows how Girard's conceptsof mimetic desire and the scapegoat mechanism both confirm and transform our understanding of Christianity.
