Barbara Brown Taylor is an Episcopal priest, academic professor, and author. Her writing style reflects her preaching style – witty, direct, and engaging. In 2000, Taylor wrote Speaking of Sin: The Lost Language of Salvation. This book provides an interpretation of sin, repentance, and forgiveness. As we continue our conversation around systemic and individual sin, Taylor’s book guides us to move past the demoralizing awareness of sin and toward reconciliation.
