Idleman Kyle (2016)


Not a Fan has called more than one million readers to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple-moving from fan to follower in their relationship with God. How about you: Are you a fan or a follower? Go ahead, think honestly about your relationship with God... but don't answer too quickly. In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Not a Fan is your DTR with God-a "define the relationship" conversation to determine exactly where you stand. You may indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who admires Jesus but isn't ready to let him cramp your style. Then again, maybe you're not into Jesus, period. Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave his all for you. Plus, this expanded and updated version of Not a Fan adds a new introduction and an entirely new chapter about how to practically live out the message of this mega bestseller. Now also available: Not a Fan Spanish edition, journal, student and teen editions, small group study, daily devotional, and more.… (more)

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.

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.
