What is included with this book?


Are you yearning for a drastic change in your church life? Are you tired of the status quo? Are you ready to abandon the traditional religious structures of culture? In a postmodern Christian landscape that is far too synthetic, pretentious, and trendy, there exists a unique window of opportunity that has the potential to alter the present course of church history. The question of the hour is: How long will this window remain open, and will it be taken advantage of as a true opportunity or will it just be added to the trash heap of so many former disappointing fads? Zeal for His House is a passionate and penetrating call to transcend all things institutional. All of the cutting edge church trends are addressed, along with a radical but practical alternative to the way church and ministry have been done for the past 1,800 years. Zeal for His House seeks to present nothing short of what would lead to the satisfaction of the divine intention, a Church that is rooted in the timelessness of God's eternal purpose and in the centrality of Jesus Christ. Zeal for His House picks up where the reformation left off.

Author Biography

In a former life, Jon K. Slusser was a Bible college graduate and a licensed minister who mainly moved within Full-gospel and Charismatic circles. Since that time, Jon has met with first-century style house churches as a simple brother in a tremendous time of relearning and retooling. Jon and his beautiful wife, DeDe, live in an intentional house church community in the metro Atlanta area with their five wonderful children. You can visit him online at
