Dr. James Alison (born 1959) is a Catholic Priest, theologian and author. He is noted for his work on gay issues and the application of René Girard's anthropological theory in theology.

James Alison studied at Blackfriars, Oxford University, and earned his bachelors degree and doctorate in Theology from the Jesuit Theology Faculty in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He was a member of the Dominican Order - his Master's degree is a Dominican Lectorate - from 1981 to 1995. He has lived and worked in Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile and the United States. Currently he is based in São Paulo, Brazil.

His expressed disagreement with regards to the official (Roman Catholic) Church teaching on homosexuality is itself based on the official Church teaching concerning Nature, Grace and Original Sin (see homosexuality and Roman Catholicism).
