This is not another book about marriage. The market is flooded with those. The Last Wedding is a Biblical overview of the importance of weddings throughout Scripture. The author takes a humorous, but important look at why weddings are highlighted in the Bible and what they mean for us today. This is what they don't tell you when you get married. Even if you're single, The Last Wedding is one you'll want to know about.
Dave Zuchelli is a man of extremes. He laughs until he cries (or worse). He rides a Harley. He loves with a passion, and he preaches like there's no tomorrow. So it's no surprise that he's written a book about some of the most intimate moments of a person's life.
Dave holds degrees from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He currently resides in Ashburn, VA and is the pastor of a small congregation l in nearby Great Falls.
He's married to a wonderful young woman named Denise, and between them they have four children and several grandchildren. We know she's wonderful because he says she has to be in order to put up with him.
For the past twenty years, he has been a tent maker in the tradition of the Apostle Paul (although he says the comparison undoubtedly stops there). He recently retired from his day job to spend more time preaching, teaching and writing.

Most people remember Noah as the guy who built the ark (not just any ark--THE ark). We forget the fact that ship building was not his main job. In fact, he was a little like Barney Rubble (remember the Flintstones?). We never hear about his regular vocation. After the flood is over, however, we get an eyeful. For a guy who was supposed to be so righteous, he left a little to be desired. Typical of God to pick someone like that do do his work.
The Last Wedding
The Bible tells us that Noah was a farmer (and all this time I thought he was a ship builder). He grew grapes, harvested them, and like any good vintner, he made wine. So far so good… Then he made his big mistake—he drank the wine. Now normally, that would not be a huge faux pas. For Noah, however, it was a doozy. I won’t go so far as to call him an alcoholic, but apparently he didn’t know when to stop.
According to Scripture, Noah got stinking drunk (loaded, three sheets to the wind, inebriated, and totally juiced). Now this alone would probably not be worthy of a significant place in the Book of books. What happened next is what helped this story make the cut.
