"A model of how to deploy some very traditional Christian resources with a thoroughly contemporary intellectual toughness...It is the most imaginative and lucid presentation of a theology of redemption that I have read in many years." (from the introduction by Rowan Williams)

EXCERPT:

"If you want to know the sort of earth from which Knowing Jesus flowered, it was the thought of Rene Girard helping me to work out what the Gospel could mean in the midst of a poverty stricken Brazilian AIDS hospital, and the humorous and disastrous ups and downs of attempting to share something of the life of the transvestite prostitutes, dancers and military policeman who peopled the world which received me so generously. It is these people, and the way they set me free, that opened up a quite new sort of knowledge, a new way of knowing Jesus, and of knowing victims."

REVIEWS:

"James Alison has done a useful service in challenging us to look provocatively at old truths in a new light." Charles Colson

"Deeply moving and liberating, a brilliant combination of scholarship and encounter with God in the ordinary life of the Church. . . A rare combination of the old and the new." Timothy Radcliffe, Master, The Dominican Order

"Incredibly fresh and vivid...a superb teacher...given from the immediacy of the writer's experience of the victim point of view in various parts of the Third World." New Blackfriars
