Written with humor, a very insightful read. The title caught me off guard when my son handed it to me, glad he loaned me his book. My 19 year old thinks so much of the book he is giving it to our church for their lending library. I have put this on my keep to share list and plan on buying some extra copies to give out. This book is spot on in talking about the difference between a fan and a follower. It does not beat the reader up but does make a person think.
About This Item
Are you a follower of Jesus? Don't answer too quickly. In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Consider it 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. In any case, don't take the question--Are you a follower of Jesus?--lightly. Some people don't know what they've said yes to and other people don't realize what they've said no to, says Pastor Kyle Idleman. But Jesus is ready to clearly define the relationship he wants with his followers. 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.

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. • Fans often confuse their admiration for devotion. They mistake their knowledge of Jesus for intimacy with Jesus. Fans assume their intentions make up for their apathetic faith. • Fans will try and make Jesus one of many. Some fans may even make Jesus the first of many. But when Jesus defines the relationship he make it clear; he wants to be your one and only.
This book has changed my life! It has a comical flare to a very serious topic. I recommend it.
