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

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?" ( )

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. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310331935, Paperback)

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.

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.… (more)
