James Alison is a Catholic Priest, theologian and author. He earned his doctorate from the Jesuit Faculty in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. James has lived in many countries and works as an itinerant preacher, lecturer and retreat giver. He is one of the principal theological interpreters of the work of René Girard (most recently as author of an introduction to the Christian faith for adults following Girard’s thought, and co-editor with Wolfgang Palaver of a handbook on mimetic theory and religion), and is a Fellow of Imitatio (www.imitatio.org).

Over the years James has firmly but gently faced down Church authority on matters gay and lived to tell the tale. His writing can be accessed on www.jamesalison.com When not on the road he lives in Madrid.

    This will be really good.

    The Scottish Laity Network had a similar event with Fr. James a few months ago and it was an excellent evening. So, I can highly recommend it.
