- Jason Boyett, author of Pocket Guide to the Afterlife and O Me of Little Faith
A nice blend of Don Miller-like musings and some nifty historical scholarship...Clay offers you his own thoughts and feelings and even hints at his own past failings--all to illustrate that all of us have a chance to rise from the metaphorical dead and live again.
- Paul Asay, author of God on the Streets of Gotham
Finally! A book that connects zombie movies to the gospel. Clay Morgan is one of the currently under appreciated geniuses of the Gen X & Y Christian crowd. He always makes you think, and he delivers once again in making the Christian faith come alive.
- Dallas Jenkins, Filmmaker & Director of Media at Harvest Bible Chapel, Chicago
Clay Morgan's debut book, UNDEAD: Revived, Resuscitated, and Reborn, couldn't have arrived at a more timely moment in American culture. That's Clay Morgan's mantra: Connecting spiritual themes with popular culture to inspire a new appreciation of our religious traditions.
I found myself treating this book like a Donald Miller book - underlining great quotes and writing in the margins.
From the Back Cover
Ever wonder what it means to become truly alive, to come back from the dead, to live with a sense of forever in your bones?
Death isn't the end of existence, some say, but what if death isn't even the end of life? What if there could be life beyond the grave, a physical existence that defies mortality? What if there isn't just death and life, but death and undeath?
With story-telling genius and cultural clarity, author/speaker Clay Morgan brings an unforgettable book that invites you to get UNDEAD!
More About the Author
A proud Gen Xer, Clay believes that most everything can be explained via movie references, song lyrics, and spiritual clarity as we seek to find the meaning of life.
In addition to playing a zombie in a music video, Clay has moonlighted with a Russian spy, walked away from more car wrecks than Evel Knievel, and once took second place in a roller skating limbo contest. Read about his adventures and more at ClayWrites.com.

Sometimes I forget how utterly fantastic and freaky some of the stories in the Bible are. In this book, I was reminded how remarkable it is that dead people came to life. Whether it was Elijah lying atop a dead little boy, Ezekiel's undead army, or Jesus' resurrection, these stories really put you in the scene. The details are visceral and interesting, and it helped me see the stories in a deeper light.
Atop all that is Morgan's fantastic voice. He's funny and personal and gives phenomenal pop culture references. It's a fun, enlightening read.
I highly recommend this book.
Good news for congregations: This isn't a taboo topic. This is home turf for Christians! In fact, the resuscitation of the dead runs throughout the Bible--most famously Jesus' own resurrection, of course, but there are many other gripping tales of the dead/undead in the pages of scripture. Historian, college lecturer, author and Christian educator Clay Morgan's debut book, UNDEAD: Revived, Resuscitated, and Reborn, couldn't have arrived at a more timely moment in American culture. That's Clay Morgan's mantra: Connecting spiritual themes with popular culture to inspire a new appreciation of our religious traditions.
In his book, you will find a host of pop culture references to the undead, starting with Sesame Street's lovable Count von Count and ranging from the first American zombie movies to the latest trends in undead media. At this point, even the federal government is on board, using tongue-in-cheek zombie themes for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's most popular public-health promotions in years. (Smart hmmm? With a limited budget, the CDC is even recruiting the undead for our public good?Read more ›
I also liked Morgan's easy way of taking me to the time when Jesus physically walked the earth and healed many zombies (like Lazarus). I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this book - I devoured it in 3 days! Highly recommended.
