John Vernon Taylor (1914-2001) worked in theological education in Africa, and was General Secretary of the Church Missionary Society and then Bishop of Winchester. He is regarded by many as one of the more remarkable figures of the Church of England, in the 20th century, not so much as an ecclesiastical statesman (though he was for a time Chair of the Doctrine Commission) as for his visionary thinking and writing. His main works, The Go-Between God andThe Christlike God, continue to stir hearts and minds through their combination of poetic imagination and clear thinking. Dr Naish will focus on Taylor’s integration of the missionary impulse into a coherent and attractive portrayal of Christian life.
