Dr. Taylor dedicated his life to helping people love God with their minds. My prayer is that his family will find comfort in a remembrance of a life well lived and in a commitment to focus on God’s amazing grace.


I always appreciated his comments/articles through the years.

May those who loved him be comforted…thank-you for sharing him with us.


Ervin Taylor fought for intellectual accountability in Adventism. As with nearly all establishments, religious, political or otherwise, official Adventism put up resistance to his efforts. But Dr. Taylor persisted, leaving a legacy we all may emulate.

A struggle such as he took up is never easy. But it is honest, and therefore it is admirable.



What talent. What loss. But talent well used. He will be missed.


One of the greatest scientists in Adventistism


Am truly going to miss my good friend Erv. Already do.


A great thinker. Always enjoyed his comments. Will miss his input.
May God comfort the family and friends.

I am very sad at the loss of Dr. Ervin Taylor. I am a Pastor from Australia who always enjoyed what he had to say. May he rest in Christ after such a fruitful life. May Christ bless his family.
