About Outlook

Publisher: Worldview Publications

Editor Emeritus: Jack D. Zwemer (1924-2017)
Publishing Editor: Norman Jarnes (1945-2022)
Editorial Associate and Webmaster: Ann L. Randall

Outlook addresses all readers, from church, mosque, synagogue, temple, or without religious affiliation. Our focus is the centrality of the Christ event for human history. We believe that, in his life, death and resurrection as Jesus, the One-and-Only God acted to become human. Through his self-limiting, self-emptying, self-giving love, God determined that mankind, too, might become truly human and that all Creation might soon be transformed.

It is Outlook’s purpose to facilitate a common — but not institutionalized — witness to the Christ event. To this end Worldview Publications operates on a volunteer basis, with no paid staff and no membership. We envision an exponential response to God’s revelation — a response apart from all power structures, either secular or religious.


Unless otherwise indicated, all Outlook articles are authored by Jack D. Zwemer, D.D.S., Ph.D. (1924-2017) — scientist, academic, and then Episcopal lay theologian and editor/researcher for Worldview Publications until his death. Zwemer’s earlier writing that was previously published in print has recently been added in the “Prequel” and “Prolepsis” sections to provide a backdrop for his later articles. We believe that this body of work, which draws together a broad swath of religious thought, provides an important perspective on the Christ event.
