Publisher's Summary

Pastor Kyle Idleman doesn't just want to be a fan of Jesus, he wants to full heartedly commit to him and be a follower of Jesus. But how can you make the leap from fan to follower? In Not a Fan Idleman uses biblical examples to show how the people who met Jesus also had to decide if they were fans or followers, and what it meant for them to then become followers. Being a follower doesn't mean that you go to church every week, that you slap a Jesus fish on the back of your car, and that you give to charity. That's what a fan does. What a follower of Jesus does, Idleman observes, is die to themselves each and every moment of the day because 'you can't say yes to following Jesus unless you say no to living for yourself.' In this three part book Idleman helps you to discover whether you are a fan or a follower, how to recognize the invitation Jesus has given, and what following Jesus looks like in your daily life. With humor and real life examples to draw you closer to Jesus, Kyle Idleman compels each and every one of us to Not Be A Fan.

I am a follower and not a FAN


It is such a breath of fresh air to come accross a writer who strikes and even balance between the grace of Christ and what it is to really deny yourself and follow him. Some people are all about a list of rules, whilst others maintain that it is alll grace but Kyle strikes and even balance between the two and says that this is what makes the difference between a follower and a fan.

Kyle says that a fan might not make it to heaven, and whilst I disagree with his postion I certainly liked what he said about being a true follower of Christ was.

With candid stories from his own life, Kyle is both transparent and honest in his personal stories as well as telling stories from other people. He is a gifted teacher and story teller and any person who reads or downloads this book is in for a treat.
