It was said of Jesus that 'zeal for my Father's house consumes me.'Is that zeal burning in us? Perhaps a big reason that such zeal has been muted or derailed in us rests in the fact that we have been led to chase after issues and ideals about Christ, instead of Christ Himself.This book suggests that the Lord's heart is revealed in the Bookends of Scripture—Genesis 1–2 and Revelation 21–22. At the beginning and the end we discover a Bride and a Groom. Adam and Eve pointed to the larger reality of Christ and His Bride, the ekklesia.The eternal purpose of God in Christ unveils an extravagant love. 'God so loved the world that He gave His Son.' The Father always pours His love into the Son, the Son pours His love into His Bride, and the Bride pours her love into the Bridegroom. 'The love of God is poured out of our hearts by the Holy Spirit.'It is hoped that Life Between the Bookends will ignite a spark in your life to be in step with the heart of Father, Son, and Spirit!

    Jon Zens
    When R.C. Sproul boiled everything down about church life, he concluded that 'in Protestant worship, for the most part, we sit and listen to a sermon.' But aren’t we justified in asking, why would we devote an ounce of concern to this since there is nothing in the New Testament concerning sermons? The vital question that begs for an answer is, why have we taken scissors and cut...

    A.M. Fairbairn noted concerning the early church that “regarded as to its internal relating, it was a family...in the apostles’ day churches were so small that everyone knew every other and kept a watchful eye on one another.” Most people would readily admit that now the majority of churches have lost a vital family atmosphere. In Jesus Is Family, the contours of life together ...

  • A Church Building Every 1/2 Mile
    Jon Zens
    Today denominationalism and the existence of institutional churches (buildings) abound across the fruited plain. Did you ever wonder where it all came from? In the church that Christ founded, a singular, simple but profoundly dynamic group of people quickly spread across the map of the then known world. There was no such thing as Baptist, Lutheran, Anglican or Assembly of God, ...
