The Undead Interview, Part Two (with Clay Morgan)
Today I present to you the last of the Undead Interviews. Well, interviews I’ve done, anyway. In this one, Clay Morgan and I dig a little deeper into his book, including talk about pop culture, spirituality and the divinity of Christ. Oh, and zombies.
Fair warning: I overloaded this one with the quotes. There are just so many great things to pull out of Undead. Here’s a favorite quote that I didn’t find a space for:
Positive changes begin when we finally start to realize who God actually is rather than many of the misconceptions we carry around. God and reality come together. The world begins spinning with the power of that endless revelation. Earth-shaking stuff. Then he breathes life into us in a way we have never encountered. When we move out of the darkness and toward him, the light will hurt our eyes. It might not be pretty, but there we are. Alive. We hear an unfamiliar heartbeat and realize that the pulse isn’t even coming from inside of us. It’s the heartbeat of God, and we’re hearing it for the first time. (pg 178)
I love the idea that we can hear God’s heartbeat. Here’s more from Clay:
So, I’ve had Clay’s voice in my head for a month now, and I’m sure I’ll go through a little Clay withdrawal now that this is all done. But that’s okay, because soon enough I’ll be back to normal – you know, with only the two voices in my head.

Michelle, thank you sooo much for helping me explain the book and doing so much hard work to make these great videos. I really appreciate you!!
Thanks Clay, that’s nice of you to say. I’m not as pleased with my work on this one, but I’m very happy that I got to interview you! I’ve been impressed with your consistency in thought and belief, as evidenced by the fact that quotes from Undead and other sources came together so completely with what you said to me. Thanks for your patience with my insecurities through this whole process, as well. You’ve been very kind 🙂
Great job Michelle! Thanks for capturing the truth bombs that Clay was dropping. Makes me want to go read Undead again! 🙂
I know! I’ve basically had my face burried in Undead (there’s a pun) for 2 months, and most everything that I experience is being filtered through an Undead lense. Everything seems to relate back to the book somehow, or something Clay has said. It’s come up so often in Bible study it’s not funny – bible study hijacking week after week, haha! I may need to go through detox. But I was thinking of reading it one more time straight through before I commit myself. 🙂
lol That’s awesome! I should totally introduce Undead to my small group
Yeah, we actually had a great talk on communion because I had a question about a review someone wrote on the book. It’s been a pretty awesome growth experience for me overall – in terms of thinking in new ways, etc.
