John Taylor's most famous book is a reminder that the Holy Spirit urges us toward a communal humanity. Taylor's is a message especially pertinent in an age of crushing multinational capitalism and a rising tide of individual greed and fear of the Other. 

Based on his Cadbury lectures delivered in 1967, The Go-Between God is now considered one of the most important works ever written on the Holy Spirit and mission.

This edition contains a new foreword by Jonny Baker.

John V. Taylor, Jonny Baker

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.
