The Challenge of an Open Horizon: The Gospel shape of Gay & Lesbian Freedom

One who’s Gospel has set us free?
James Alison is a gay priest, theologian and the author of a string of books that have been
widely received as offering an important representation of Christianity in the current age. Born in England he now lives in Sao Paulo Brazil and travels widely lecturing, giving retreats and speaking on issues of justice and theology.
