John the Baptist is one of the most pivotal characters in the Gospel story. Joan Taylor's book has not been superseded by any other comprehensive examination of John the Baptist since it was written. This is a completely new and revised edition which has the potential to become a standard text on the subject for years to come and to sell well in the UK and the US. The book emphasises not only a proper understanding of John's baptism but also his role as a teacher, which is downplayed in the New Testament so as not to take the emphasis away from Jesus' teaching. The close relationship between Jesus and John is explored, in terms of their teaching tradition. The ethical dimensions of his eschatological proclamations are emphasised strongly, since confession and the practice of righteousness ensures the inner purity necessary for the efficacy of immersion.
