Morgan Guyton and his wife Cheryl are co-directors of the NOLA Wesley Foundation, the United Methodist campus ministry at Tulane and Loyola University in New Orleans, LA. They have two sons: Matthew (9) and Isaiah (7). In addition to his Patheos blog, Morgan has contributed in the past to Huffington Post, Red Letter Christians, Ministry Matters, Think Christian, and the United Methodist Reporter. His first book How Jesus Saves the World from Us: 12 Antidotes to Toxic Christianity was released by Westminster John Knox on April 18, 2016.
Morgan Guyton’s new book is intelligent, passionate, insightful, challenging, and a compelling read. It will jolt you out of comfortable but confining Christian ruts and help you be healed from twelve common and dangerous religious toxins. It’s strong and needed medicine!?Brian D. McLaren, author/speaker/activist (brianmclaren.net)
Powerful. Provocative. And true. Morgan Guyton makes the startling and convincing case that Jesus came to save the world from us — human beings who have the propensity to pervert Good News into Bad Rules. With passion and wit, Guyton turns Jesus’ message back around to a radical way of justice for the world. If you’ve been tempted to dump Christianity, give this book the chance to convert you to the possibility of a deeper life in and with God. ?Diana Butler Bass, author Grounded: Finding God in the World — A Spiritual Revolution
I devoured Morgan's book. He has a prophetic voice to focus on the heart of Jesus. He encouraged me at a time I need it, to keep going with my film on the same theme. ?Richard Rossi, Director of upcoming film Canaan Land (www.gofundme.com/CanaanLand)
