5.0 out of 5 stars Please read this book, 20 Aug 2002

This review is from: The Go-between God: Holy Spirit and the Christian Mission (Paperback)
It's a while since I've read this, so I don't remember it in detail, but somebody needs to tell the world how wonderful a book this is. It is a theology of the Holy Spirit, seeing the Godhead at work in our interaction with the things and people about us. When we perceive as Thou instead of It, that may be an action of the Spirit. Taylor might be called an experiential theologian, but he avoids woolly liberalism and dangerous subjectivity.
If the Church of England can produce bishops of the calibre of John Taylor and Richard Harries, there's hope for it yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Commended, 12 Feb 2005

R.C.Wolff (Oxford, Oxfordshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Go-between God: Holy Spirit and the Christian Mission (Paperback)
I first read this book in 1976, and I still carry much of it with me in my head : it's an absolute classic, to which I return regularly. Taylor's understanding of the role of the Holy Spirit within creation is not only thoroughly Biblical but rings true to experience. He enables us not only to celebrate divine presence active in the world but takes us far beyond the usual vague affirmations of that presence to see *how* and *where* that activity might be discerned - with or without the use of religous language or commitment. Whilst affirming the work of the Spirit within institutional Christian religion, and the potential role of religion in discerning the activity of the Spirit, he is soberly critical of religion. The Spirit dances at the heart of creation, acknowledged or not, and will not be constricted to religious formulae or experiences.
