About this author

From the Author
As the author of the book "The Second Virgin Birth," I thought you might be interested in why I wrote the book in the first place. I truly believe that each one of us has inside our very souls, something that we need to accomplish before we pass from this world to the next. Mine was to write a book. One that was not just entertaining but inspired thought among its readers. One that could cause heated debates among friends about its not so simple and clear-cut meanings. I feel that I have accomplished my goal with a book written on a subject that could touch us all and with characters that are so lifelike that they could become your true friends or your worst enemies.
My idea for this book began after a personal tragedy in my...more


I have just been contacted by the local junior college, Tarrant County College, in my home town of Ft. Worth. I have been told that one of their professors is using my book in her composition class. They are studying the plays of Shakespeare, the poems of Alfred Lord Tennyson, and me. They needed twenty-five more books for the rest of the class and wondered if I might have that many on hand tha... Read more of this blog post »

Many of us have experienced where God would use us for a certain task only to be rejected by friends and family. I recommend this book to all,because their are lessons to be learned from it.

message 13: by Sam

Sam Here is the review I did on your book Tommy. You have an excellent read. I admire your courage and ability to turn a fictional story into a work of art that has the ability to transform millions.

"We are living in a time when the imaginative thoughts of people are given full reign unlike any other time in our history. Tommy Taylor has taken his free thoughts to imaginative levels one can only say is inspired to stretch the hearts and minds of theologians everywhere.

The thought of Christ entering our world through cloning is more than a possibility. Even if science makes the slightest mistake in the remaking of the Christ story, there will be some who believe and those who do not believe. Such is the case in any story fabalized into society. People will take the story to places where their own interpretations can be accepted and use their personalities to challenge the beliefs of others for their own agenda.

For the last 2,000 years, our world has taken the first virgin birth to relate to or engage in conflicts to mediate his or her own personality seeking manifestation in the world of form. Why would this book be any different? I believe it would be more than facinating to live in a time where the events spoke of in this fictional story became a nonfictional reality. I can't help from wonder though who would be crucified first. Would it be the second coming of Jesus or his mother?

This book is one that should be read by anyone and those going into ministry. It is a book needed to be taken seriously by considering it's premises as a wonderful work of art expanding the hearts and minds of those who read it."
