‘Dr Taylor has, from a standing start, taken the idea that journalists need to be more religiously literate and moved the very concept centre-stage and fostered debate at the highest level both through her own writing, her capacity to promote and network and the patient build-up of the Charity itself. She has campaigned on a wide range of issues and causes, securing an audience for better religious literacy in Parliament (she has given evidence to various APPGs), co-hosting events with the Open University in Westminster, and giving the first religion lectures to Reuters, the Press Association and the NUJ. She has forged partnerships with a number of important likeminded global institutions. I can bear testimony to her vision; her remarkable intelligence; her prodigious energy; her self-sacrificial willingness to keep going in the face of setbacks; the tireless tenacity she has repeatedly demonstrated; her capability as an advocate for the cause and her effectiveness as a communicator and mentor to countless aspiring young journalists around the world.’
Dr Nick Isbister, Chairman, Lapido Media, Centre for Religious Literacy in Journalism.
‘An inspiration. Jenny knows her stuff, she has enthusiasm by the bucket-load, she works tirelessly for what she believes is right. I found her a pleasure to work with.’ Ellen Widdup, Director at It’s Red; Editorial Director at Prominent PR.
‘In a world in which many good people do nothing, Jenny Taylor is a fine example of someone not willing to be persuaded that there is nothing to be done. I was truly impressed by her determination to level mountains and raise valleys, so as to bring people to a clearer and more respectful understanding of each other and of issues that threaten to divide them. Jonathan Sacks’ phrase “the dignity of difference” is exemplified in her work.’ Keynote Speaker at Jesus House for All the Nations’ Christianity or the Occult Conference. Anthony Gittins, Professor of Missiology from Chicago’s Catholic Theological Union.
‘Thank you for all you have done to keep the campaign alive. None of it would have happened without you.’ John Parmiter, Planning Consultant to Save St Mark’s Campaign.
