Douglas Taylor (1948–2014) was for fourteen years Assistant Editor at the Banner of Truth Trust in Edinburgh, until ill-health forced him to step down in 2011. From June 2011 until May 2014, he kept a blog to encourage those who knew that the remainder of their lives would be short. His vibrant faith in his Saviour is shared in a selection of 245 short blog posts, full of gospel comfort and preserved in his book, I Shall Not Die But Live.
A native of Ayrshire in south-west Scotland, he was the loving husband of Di, with whom he had six children. The desire of his heart was fulfilled when he went home to his Saviour early in June 2014.
