Dr Jenny Taylor is Fellow of Journalism, Communication and Media at the Kirby Laing Centre for Public Theology in Cambridge. She founded the pioneering international charity, Lapido Media, to promote religious literacy in the mainstream media. Her forthcoming book Unacceptable Truth: The Christian origins and practice of journalism will be published by Lion next year.
