Description

This book challenges you to consider what it really means to call yourself a Christian. With a direct frankness that you're not likely to hear in Sunday school class, the author invites you to take an honest look at your relationship with Jesus. His call to follow may seem radical to us, but Jesus desires it for every believer. --from back cover.

This book was given out as part of a series of sermons at church in the fall of 2012.
For everyone who says they are a Christian -- read this book to decide if you are a Fan or a true Follower of Christ.

This book was truly amazing. Kyle Idleman carefully, systematically, and with a wonderful combination of humor and brevity, defines what it means to be a truly committed follower of Christ. I would highly recommend this to any Christian interested in learning to say "no" to the world, and "yes" to Jesus.

Love it! What a powerful challenge to lukewarm Christianity. Engaging and deeply challenging, this is a book every Christian should read. I am still struck by the simple and probing question, "has following Jesus cost you anything?"

He disappointed me in the fact that he didn't explain how the disabled people were fans or even could be fans.

Rated: A
Great book for those committed to being, not just a fan of Jesus Christ, but a true all-in follower. I am not a fan.
LibraryThing member Erika.D
This book is an eye opener & caused me to ask myself some tough questions. Jesus has "fans" and Jesus has "followers." Am I a fan or follower? What does Jesus require if you are to be one of His followers? The author makes some great points & backs up with a lot of scripture & personal stories from other people. I didn't like his writing style. He tried to include a lot of humor & comments & side notes that were just dumb & annoying to me. The book could have been 100 pages shorter if he had just kept things focused. Overall, I liked it I'm glad to have had the chance to read it & now challenge myself to pick up my cross & follow Christ.… (more)
