Greg Garrett, English professor at Baylor University, is a professional writer who teaches creative writing, film, literature, and theology classes at Baylor University. As a fiction writer, he has published forty short stories and critically-acclaimed novels. He is perhaps best known, however, as a critic and theologian exploring the intersections of literature, culture, religion, and politics. Greg is on to talk with Tripp about his book Living with the Living Dead: The Wisdom of the Zombie Apocalypse, and his spiritual memoir Crossing Myself: A Story of Spiritual Rebirth.
Tripp and Greg talk about the Walking Dead (spoiler alert), the history of zombie literature and movies and their existential signification, what makes for a compelling story, the Christian response to a dangerous world, what it means to be fully alive, and how the zombie apocalypse intersects with reality.
