"Building Up the Body: One Man or One Another?" develops the New Testament practice of body life by examining key N.T. texts, and interacting primarily with the Puritan tradition, which focused on the one gift of "the Minister." The conclusion is that there is no NT basis for our fixation on "The Pastor" to the neglect of the 58 one-anothers in the NT. Also included is Judy Schindler's excellent article, "The Rise of One-Bishop-Rule in the Early Church: A Study of the Writings of Ignatius & Cyprian," and Jon Zens' "Several Proposition Set Forth as Encouragements to Practice Christian Love in Local Churches," plus a review of Robert Banks' "Paul's Idea of Community."

222 Jon Zens Christ Minimized? A Response to Rob Bell's Love Wins
Ekklesia Press December, 2011 0982744676 Paperback New 64 pages 
Jesus said: “Do not be surprised at this: An hour is coming when all the people who are in the tombs will hear Jesus’ voice and will come forth – the ones who have done good things to a resurrection of life; the ones who have practiced evil things to a resurrection of judgment” (John 5:28-29) The controversial book Love Wins suggests that all people will experience redemption, and that no one will face the permanent judgment of God. Christ Minimized? challenges such convictions, and concludes among other things that “Paul did not comfort the afflicted saints by saying that in the future their tormentors would be reconciled to God. Rather, he comforted them by saying they would be ‘paid back’ for touching God’s anointed ones.” Christ Minimized? examines some traditional views of popular Bible verses, hell, heaven, the afterlife and invites the reader to re-examine commonly-held assumptions. It is a book that will take you deeper into the eternal purpose of God in Christ. One of the toughest questions anyone can ask a believer and the toughest answer he/she "must" give is, "How can a loving God send people to hell?" Rob Bell in his book Love Wins has set out to reconcile God's love with humanity's concern. The question, however, is this: Does what Bell sets forth line up with biblical theology? Jon Zens seeks to answer this question in his latest book, Christ Minimized. Unlike many theologians and church leaders (many of whom I respect), Jon actually interacts with Love Wins. He answers the tough questions, disagrees with charity, and also exposes the many straw men that appear in this work. If you are looking for a response that does not sound like a vicious attack, please read this. If you have been asked the tough question about how a loving God can "send people to hell," then read this book. I was moved by the charity, the clarity, and the conversational approach Jon employs in this book, and I am confident you will be challenged too! -- Lionel Woods, Financial Analyst, Texas “This is a good critique, certainly more meaty and substantial than many of the thinly-disguised ad homeinim attacks on Rob’s character that I’ve read out there.” – Michael Morrell, The Ooze

223 Jon Zens Women's Ministry in Light of All That's in the Bible
Searching Together 2009 New DVD 1.5 hours 
Meeting in Ernie Serna's home in East Los Angeles July 7, 2009, Jon Zens gave an extensive overview of women in Scripture -- male & female in Genesis 1-3, women in Israel, and how ministries of women are described in Acts & the Epistles. With this foundation, he then looks at the "problem" passages, 1 Cor.14:34-36 and 1 Tim.2:9-15. Concluding that these contexts have been misused to silence women, Jon then suggests the ways the New Testament contours female participation in the Body of Christ.

225 Jon Zens What's With Paul & Women? Unlocking the Cultural Background to 1 Tim 2
Ekklesia Press 2010 0976522292 Due out early April Paperback New 148pp. 
It is long, long overdue for the record to be set straight once and for all: to use 1 Tim: 11-12 as "clear" justification to silence all Christian women is utterly without biblical warrant. It is a mistranslation compounded by ignorance of the historical-cultural setting, compounded by harmful traditions, and compounded by far too much authoritarianism coming from those whose job is supposed to be helping believers understand the Bible correctly. In What’s with Paul and Women?, author Jon Zens tackles Paul's flow of thought, focusing on verses 11-12, in light of the fact that Timothy was left in Ephesus by Paul to deal with false teaching (1:3). He draws upon his own extensive linguistic research as well as the diverse, often overlooked research and teachings of those who have been wrestling with this issue for more than a decade. It brings much needed light to a concern that has plagued the body of Christ since the dawn of the post-apostolic era when the early church fathers began to supplant the clear example of Jesus and the works of His apostles with pagan philosophical influences which destructively perverted the important role of women in the New Testament epoch. Also, three appendices in What’s With Paul & Women? provide further insight to the issues raised in 1 Timothy 2. The first two are by Jon -- an extensive review article of John Piper’s What’s the Difference? Manhood & Womanhood Defined According to the Bible and a summary article on 1 Cor.14:34-36. The third is by Frank Richel Ames on the social world of Ephesus when Paul wrote 1 Timothy.

226 Jon Zens Christ Alone: 5 Challenges Every Group Will Face
Quoir Pub 2015 1st Paperback New 45 pages 
In succinct form, Jon seeks to unfold the contours of 5 challenges every group is sure to face -- to function with Christ only as the focus, to let Jesus lead, to deepen relationships, to be defined by Christ, not Adam, and to let the love of Christ reign in body-life. One reader noted after reading "Christ Alone": "For those seeking authentic Christian community where all are equal, all participate, and Christ is Head, Jon has provided a sensitive yet deeply penetrating article that points to Christ alone as our Leader and Sustainer. Having been part of one such community for several years, I can confirm that the five challenges Jon addresses are real, and every group that seeks to place Jesus as Head will have to wrestle with them, often many times. In Christ Alone, Jon provides a compass that will guide us away from idols and things, and reorient us to Jesus as our everything!" -- Mark Lake, Experiencing Christ blog

228 Jon Zens No Will of My Own: How Patriarchy Smothers Female Dignity & Personhood
Ekklesia Press 2011 0982744633 Paperback New 80 pages Kathy Huff/Jessica Braddock-Gavit 
In 1912 Jesse Penn-Lewis noted from Genesis 3 that it was the serpent, not the woman, who was cursed: "The serpent is cursed, but, in effect, the beguiled victim [Eve] is blest, for through her will come the ‘Seed’ which will triumph over the devil and his seed; and through her will arise a new race through the promised Seed (Gen.3:15) . . . . Henceforth it is also war by Satan upon the womanhood of the world, in malignant revenge for the verdict of the garden" (War On the Saints). Church history reveals that Roman Catholicism and Protestantism taught and practiced forms of patriarchy that essentially sided with the evil one's disdain for females. Women were not allowed to function or speak in the church, were viewed as existing to serve males, and were seen as conduits of sin and error. John Calvin, for example, rashly affirmed "Therefore all women are born to submit to the pre-eminence of the male sex . . . . Let the woman be content in her position of subjection, and not feel indignant because she has to play second fiddle to the superior sex." In No Will of My Own, author Jon Zens compares the patriarchy taught to families by the Roman Catholic and Dutch Reformed churches in Holland with an aggressive patriarchal wing of the home-schooling movement in America. He shows that the earmarks of patriarchy doctrine result in varying levels of abuse of young girls and wives. This book serves as a vital warning concerning the misuse of Scripture and church tradition to smother female worth and dignity. In almost every religion around the world, the hearts, souls, and bodies of women are sacrificed on the altar of fundamentalism. In No Will of My Own, Jon Zens takes a sobering look at abuse within patriarchal Christianity. An important book. -- Hillary McFarland, author of Quivering Daughters: Hope and Healing for the Daughters of Patriarchy

229 Jon Zens A Church Building Every 1/2 Mile: what Makes American Christianity Tick?
Ekklesia Press 2008 097652225X 1st paperback New 128pp. 
When former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, brashly dismissed organized religion as a sham, it scandalized the religious establishment. Jon Zens present four crisp essays in this volume that unravel the reoccurring components of American Christianity. They show that condemnations like Ventura's are reasonably justified. Jon contrasts the reality of modern the modern religious community with the vision set out in the New Testament. Much of what calls itself church is unaligned with the teachings of Christ. Jon, a 30-year veteran of simpler approaches to church, gives an honest, refreshing challenge to revisit the concepts and practices commonly thought of as "church." "When people ask me why the church seems powerless, I often note that we have not yet tried to answer Jesus' high priestly prayer to be one. We allow petty differences and theological trivialities to divide us. Jon brings us back to where Jesus wants us to be as in the early church. This book is must reading." -- Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist/Fox News Contributor, co-author of 'Blinded by Might'

230 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

234 Jon Zens / Graham Wood, eds. 58 to 0 -- How Christ Leads Through the One Anothers
Ekklesia Press Available Dec 19, 2013 1938480058 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
