Vincent Taylor, The Historical Evidence for the Virgin Birth (1920)
Vincent Taylor offers a moderate critical examination of the subject, seeking to provide an objective study of the doctrine and its development within the early Church. He is respectful throughout, but does not stand as an advocate for the conservative, orthodox position. In this way, his study serves as a valuable complement and contrast to that of Orr. Taylor was an influential New Testament scholar and theologian, the author of many books—especially works on the Gospels and Christology—which are still read and consulted today. He was for many years Principal and Professor at Wesley College (Headingly, Leeds), as well as Examiner in Biblical Theology at London University and a Fellow of the British Academy (F.B.A.).
