Are you a fan or a follower?

Are you a fan or a follower?  Did you make a decision or a commitment?  Do you know about Him or do you have an intimate relationship?  While many Christians would say they were a follower of Christ, their behavior and actions would prove they are only a fan according to Kyle Idleman, author of “not a fan”.

Idleman’s book teaches Christians who are fans become completely committed followers of Jesus.  Do you only follow Christ when life is easy and the words you hear are soothing?  Or, alternatively, do you also follow Christ when the words sting, bite and convict?


If you are stuck in a relationship with Christ that doesn’t go beyond the once or twice a week church service, an occasional prayer and meaningless Bible study and you want more of what God is offering, “not a fan” can lead you in the right direction.  For some straight talk about discipleship and commitment, read and re-read this book.  Anyone who can lead you to an unforgettable journey is worth your time and effort.

Kyle Idleman is the teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY.
