Description

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

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 04, 2011 – "When it comes to Jesus, I am not a fan." That is the attention-snagging message megachurch pastor Idle-man hopes readers are repeating by the end of this book. Addressing all Christians—including himself, Idleman writes that "the biggest threat to the church today is fans" who admire Jesus but aren't fully committed to being followers. Using Biblical examples and 11 startlingly honest testimonials from present-day followers, the author shows that being a Christian requires sacrifice and an all-consuming commitment to Jesus. Though his message is a direct challenge to the reader, Idleman offers humor and conversation instead of guilt and condemnation. He takes old themes (e.g., take up your cross, suffer for a greater purpose) and repackages them with natural wit and 21st century relevance. The meat of this succinct message could be lost if the titular catchphrase becomes yet another T-shirt slogan. But if readers latch onto the deeper meaning, they could find themselves reevaluating everything from their careers to their relationships. A refreshing read to recharge apathetic churchgoers.

Customer Reviews

Great book

Great book. Are you a fan of Jesus? Cheering on the team from the stands? Or are you a disciple walking close to the Master? This book lays it out like it is. If you desire full life as a Christian in a close and deep walk with our Lord then read this book. It is both encouraging and convicting.

Changed my life

This book hit me at the root of my relationship (or lack there of) with Christ. I grew up in the church, I go to church most weeks but I am not following Christ. This book pointed out every excuse I use over and over. This book is worth every penny! I bought many of them and have handed it off to all my friends.

Fantastic book

I learned so much from reading this
