Taylor is a former Anglican (Episcopalian) priest and a graduate of Texas A&M University (BA Philosophy) Westminster Theological Seminary (MAR Theology), Nashotah Theological House (Certificate in Anglican Studies), and the University of Dallas (MA Philosophy). He is currently a Ph.D. student in Philosophy at the University of Dallas where he studies the Natural Law theory of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Summa Theologiae Ia Iaa qq. 94-108). Taylor and his wife live in Dallas, Texas with their five children. He is the author of The Crucified Rabbi: Judaism and the Origins of Catholic Christianity and The Catholic Perspective on Paul (both forthcoming).
Taylor was an Episcopal priest in Fort Worth, Texas before he and his wife were received into the Catholic Church by Bishop Kevin Vann of Fort Worth on May 23, 2006. Immediately afterward, Taylor was appointed by Bishop Keven Farrel (then auxiliary of Washington D.C.) as the Assistant Director of the Catholic Information Center in Washington, D.C., located three blocks north of the White House, where he lectured regularly. He served under Archbishop John J. Myers of Newark and Msgr. William Stetson for the Pastoral Provision of John Paul II, the canonical structure by which Anglican clergy are received into the Catholic Church and then go on to pursue Holy Orders in the Catholic Church.
