John Taylor writes: `According to the separate traditions, Moses, Confucius and the Buddha all had a period of some forty years in which to establish a way of life among their followers. The Prophet Muhammad had twenty-two years for passing on the revelation that was bestowed through him. Yet within little more than thirty months Jesus of Nazareth proclaimed something and did something and was something that immediately fired the imagination of the common people. Though we may not understand what he meant by it, we know what the Gospel ofJesus Christ was: "The time has come; the Kingdom of God is almost here; turn your minds round and believe the good news." Here is the keynote of the faith ofJesus of Nazareth. Here is the word which, on his lips, moved people with such extraordinary power. If we could resuscitate that declaration so that it conveyed in the terms and in the experience of our world the essence of what it meant to his, might it not stir the pulse and quicken the imagination of a new generation in our own day and restore a clarity of purpose to the churches?

John V Taylor

The Right Reverend John Vernon Taylor was an English bishop and theologian who was the Bishop of Winchester from 1974 to 1984. Taylor was one of the most gifted and widely admired churchmen of his time; in 1975 he became the first priest to be consecrated directly to the See of Winchester since the Middle Ages. Taylor also wrote several books, two of which, The Primal Vision (1963), an evaluation of the central features of African religion, and The Go-Between God (1972), an interpretation of the work of the Holy Spirit, became classics.
