This online version of Jesus the Forgiving Victim: Listening for the Unheard Voice is designed for individuals to experience the 31 sessions of the course in a time frame that works for them. We hope you will accept James Alison’s invitation to participate in a journey of discovering that the unheard voice of the Crucified and Risen Lord is enlivening in you a new narrative, one that is both your own, and yet much more than your own.
Jesus the Forgiving Victim offers something quite fresh in the field of introductions to faith while embracing a straightforward Christian orthodoxy. Rather than a course of instruction which gives you information, this is a course of induction. The difference is that this course works cumulatively, allowing you to find yourself summoned into being on the inside of something new. Which is not to say that there is no information in this course! The videos are full of information, but imparting information is not the goal – finding yourself relating and perceiving in new ways is. By embarking on this course, you join others on a journey of discovery that will open your hearts and minds to discovering new things about yourself and your faith. It is a journey from fake goodness, from a false and insecure self, to relaxing into a goodness and security not your own, but in which you discover yourself held. And it is a journey from a unity that needs to create victims toward a unity received from the risen and forgiving victim in our midst. We hope that Jesus the Forgiving Victim will be a meaningful part of your journey toward a deeper faith and fuller life in Christ.
The course includes videos, Food for Thought questions, a Discussion Forum where you can engage with other participants and a Facilitator who will answer your questions and respond to your posts. The cost for one year of access to the course is $89.95. Purchase it here.
