He has earned degrees from the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Theology and Ethics by Duke University.

Harvey is a member of the Ekklesia Project, a network of Christians in North America from Catholic parishes, Protestant congregations, and many other ecclesial communities, working together to celebrate, assist and make known the work of those congregations and groups whose allegiance to God and the Body of Christ make discipleship a lived reality in the world. Finally, he has also participated in the Society of Scriptural Reasoning, a group that engages in an open-ended practice of reading- and reasoning-in-dialogue among scholars of the three Abrahamic traditions.
Harvey is married to Sarah Harvey, who is an ordained Baptist minister, and has two children: Rachel, who is a graduate of Baylor, and John, who is a senior in high school.
