The Pastor Has No Clothes: Moving from Clergy-Centered Church to Christ-Centered Ekklesia, Jon Zens
8 Jon Zens The Pastor Has No Clothes: Moving from Clergy-Centered Church to Christ-Centered Ekklesia
Ekklesia Press To be released June 28, 2011 paperback New 180 pp. approx. 
“The local church pastor is key – absolutely central – to everything we are and do as a church" (Ministry Magazine, 2010). Do sentiments like this reflect the mind of Christ? Since around 250AD the visible church has focused on one leader to hold the parishioners together. The Protestant tradition carried on this practice by making the "Pastor" or "Minister" the focal point. In The Pastor Has No Clothes, Jon Zens demonstrates that putting all the ecclesiastical eggs in the pastor's basket has no precedent in the New Testament. Using 1 Corinthians 12:14 as a springboard, he shows that the usual way of doing church contradicts Paul's self-evident remark that "the body indeed is not one part," and then goes on to unfold from that Epistle how the living church functions "with many parts." Jon dismembers the traditional pastor doctrine from various angles by combining two new essays and a response to Eugene Peterson’s The Pastor: A Memoir, with three past articles and excerpts from his response to Dr. Ben Witherington’s review of Pagan Christianity. “The pulpit,” suggested Paul Watts in 2000, “stands for the authoritative Word of God, its public reading and preaching. The pew, through long usage, has become a symbol for the hearing and reception of that word.” Is this what church boils down to: pulpit and pew? You would think so by the prevalent ways church is practiced. But Jon shows that pulpit and pew are unknown in the New Testament. Instead, a vibrant organic church life enriched by the participation of everyone is portrayed. FRANK VIOLA SAYS: Jon Zens has written one of the most important books of the 21st century. If you thought Pagan Christianity was controversial, think again. Jon’s book demonstrates beyond dispute that the clergy-system (in the form of the modern pastorate) is not only unbiblical, but contrary to the headship of Jesus Christ. I hope that every Christian reads this volume with an open heart and mind, especially those who deem themselves “leaders” in the body of Christ. I applaud Jon for his courage in adding another Scripture-based book to help foment the growing revolution that God has begun today — a revolution designed to give His church back to His beloved Son. -- Frank Viola, author of Reimagining Church, Pagan Christianity, From Eternity to Here & Revise Us Again

58 to 0 -- How Christ Leads Through the One Anothers, Jon Zens / Graham Wood, eds.
9 Jon Zens / Graham Wood, eds. 58 to 0 -- How Christ Leads Through the One Anothers
Ekklesia Press Available Dec 19, 2013 1938480058 / 978-1-938480-05-8 Paperback New 202 pages 
Bold, fresh, insightful and provocative. A treasure chest of light on the church. This is perhaps Jon’s best work yet. -- Frank Viola, author of God's Favorite Place on Earth, frankviola.org “LEADERS . . . . LEADERS . . . . LEADERS” There are 58 “one anothers” in the New Testament, but 0 information about “the pastor.” According to how “church” is done in most quarters, the existence of the church and all its eggs are put into the one basket of “the pastor.” C. Peter Wagner reflects this general outlook when he asserts, “The local church is like a company with one company commander, the pastor, who gets his orders from the Commander-in-Chief . . . . The pastor has the power in a growing church . . . . The pastor of a growing church may appear to outsiders as a dictator, but to the people of the church, his decisions are their decisions.” There have been thousands of books published about the aspects of church leadership, but comparatively very little time has been spent on the necessity of the church to “love one another,” and all the rest of the one anothers that flow out of Christ’s new command. Based on observations since 1965, Jon’s conclusion is that we need more and more of Christ, and less and less of the traditional views of "leadership." This book sets forth the Jesus-centered way of functioning as brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ. In Part One, Jon Zens sheds light on the basic issues of what has traditionally been called “leadership” and “authority.” His conclusion is that historically the church has been more about individualistic power than foot-washing. Part Two consists of contributions from writers spanning from 1937 – 2012: Hans van Campenhausen, Judy Schindler, Bruce Davidson, Darryl Erkel, Hendrik Hart, Russ Ross, Lawrence Burkholder, R.L. Wysong, Norbert Ward, Kat Huff, Stephen Crosby, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, H.L. Mencken, John Howard Yoder, and Frank Viola. These authors take issue with the traditional understandings of church life, and point the way to Christ, the only rightful Leader of the ekklesia. It boils down to this: if a group is filled with Jesus and his guidance, “leaders” will probably not be on their minds; if a group lacks the fullness of Jesus, they will probably become fixated on the need for “leaders.” “Oh, my! How I wish that I could have read 58 to 0 twenty-five years ago!” -- Former pastor, California
