What does a transformed life actually look like?

In his follow-up to the critically acclaimed My Imaginary Jesus, Matt Mikalatos tackles this question in an entertaining and thought-provoking way—with MONSTERS!!! While Christians claim to experience Christ’s resurrection power, we sometimes act like werewolves who can’t control our base desires. Or zombies, experiencing a resurrection that is 90 percent shambling death and 10 percent life. Or vampires, satiating ourselves at the expense of others. But through it all we long to stop being monsters and become truly human—the way Christ intended. We just can’t seem to figure out how.

Night of the Living Dead Christian is the story of Luther, a werewolf on the run, whose inner beast has driven him dangerously close to losing everything that matters. Desperate to conquer his dark side, Luther joins forces with Matt to find someone who can help. Yet their time is running out. A powerful and mysterious man is on their trail, determined to kill the wolf at all costs . . .

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Night of the Living Dead Christian is a spiritual allegory that boldly explores the monstrous underpinnings of our nature and tackles head-on the question of how we can ever hope to become truly transformed.

About the Author

Matt Mikalatos received his BA in writing from the University of California Riverside. Like many future world leaders, he began his career as a clerk at a comic book store.

Then Matt, in an unexpected move, joined the staff of Cru. In a moment of weakness, his best friend, Krista, agreed to marry him. He and Krista were briefly expatriated by Cru to East Asia, where they ministered for three years. Now back in the States, Matt provides leadership to the international ministries of Cru’s Northwest Region. Matt has published articles in Discipleship JournalThe Wittenburg DoorRelief, and Coach’s Midnight Diner. Matt and Krista live near Portland, Oregon. They have three beautiful daughters.
