Editorial Reviews

Review

With humor, spiritual wisdom, and a rotting corpseload of pop-culture savvy, Clay Morgan opens the casket on what we've always suspected but may have been hesitant to embrace: Life is precious. Death makes it that way. And God is the ultimate funeral crasher."
- 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.
- David Crumm, editor of ReadTheSpirit magazine


I found myself treating this book like a Donald Miller book - underlining great quotes and writing in the margins.
- Melanie Erickson, blogger

From the Back Cover

Fascinated by zombies, vampires, and the undead?

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

Clay Morgan uses pop culture, history, and humor to help us think through confusing topics and come up with answers to life's tough questions. He is the author of Undead: Revived, Resuscitated, and Reborn (Abingdon). In addition to writing and speaking, he teaches history and political science courses at three colleges in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

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.

He's also quite funny and very personable.

I started reading the book last night and didn't put it down until I was done...and for someone like me that is rare.

This is no grim or dark book about the undead. It's a book teeming with life, and stories about how to live it.
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.

Format: Paperback
A good friend of mine (Shannon)gave me a book to read yesterday (UNDEAD: revived resuscitated reborn), written by none other then her own brother Clay Morgan. Needless to say, although I was very intrigued to read it, if you have ever met Clay, you just don't know what to expect. Let's just say that he has an ambidextrous, multi-tasking, witty brain that is so full of useful and useless knowledge (sorry Clay). He makes me laugh so hard that it hurts to smile after a few hours with him.... so understandably, I really didn't know what to expect when I sat down to start reading a book he wrote (I should add, a PUBLISHED book). So back to the book, again, didn't know what to expect and maybe just maybe I didn't quite listen to Shannon enough when she was explaining it (maybe, don't quote me because I always listen to my friends ;) ). I started reading the book last night and didn't put it down until I was done...and for someone like me that is rare. Not because I don't like to read - I love reading! (but I love horror / suspense). What I was not expecting was to be moved by tears and then giggling at every other page. (it makes you really feel not alone in this world) Also want to note that it's hard to read a book when you know the Author because every joke I read, I could hear him say it, which made it that much funnier. So for anyone like me who would normally never pick up a book like this, I strongly recommend you do. And when I say someone like me, I mean if your more spiritual than religious or you sit on the fence w/religion more teetering towards the "I don't know what I believe and don't want to talk about it" then you must get this book.... It is more spiritual and can relate to anyone who has ever questioned "why" in the most non-preachy, humorous and enlightening way. Of course for anyone with a Jesus fish on their car - this is a no-brainer, buy it, you will love it.

Clay Morgan does a great job of blending pop culture, history lessons, and issues of faith in his debut book. His fresh perspective is a joy to read, and his wit is sharp. While incorporating references to zombies, vampires, and all things undead, Morgan educates and challenges his readers to actively live out their faith and impact the world around them. It also contains some awesome artwork that really captures the meaning of Morgan's words. I look forward to seeing what this new author comes up with next!

Format: Paperback
The Undead are more popular than ever! Zombies are stars on TV through series like AMC's The Walking Dead. The Twilight Saga odometer continues to spin with another blockbuster movie debuting in late 2012. Across 600 college campuses, HvZ (Humans vs. Zombies, a sort of long-running "tag" game) is played by thousands of young men and women. And comics? Comics and graphic novels love zombies, vampires, ghouls and all manner of undead creatures.

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?

I loved the pop culture references and found myself laughing before the introduction was over. I was transported to a land of zombies, but also loved the link between emotional tombs and spiritual tombs. One of my favorite quotes was: Zombies lead a very active lifestyle. So should you (Zombieland)

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.
