It's time to leave the leadership obsession behind. It's never been about leading. “Leadership” has become a runaway obsession for those who are called to equip the body of Christ for service in the Kingdom of God. The concept of “followership” is all but lost in the wake of this leadership fetish, a near hypnotic obsession. Jesus’ clear call, and the pattern of New Testament leadership, are actually found in a pattern of followership. We’ve been told otherwise but when it comes to a movement in our churches, our families, or the workplace, everything rises or falls on followership. Sweet proposes an intentional shift from leadership cults to followership cultures. He critiques the issue of leadership obsession but focuses on reigniting a passion for the "follow me" theme found throughout the gospels and the entire New Testament. Building on a set of metaphors/images, he stirs the imagination by showing what it means to be a follower of Christ and explains the vital cog that followership and the first follower play in helping others enter into the Kingdom of God. I Am A Follower moves readers: from leaders that are over to followers that are among from sages and gurus to scouts and guides from Saul's armor to David's sling from having the right answers to asking the right questions from architects to gardeners

    " This is a good book to help Christians discover the true meaning of discipleship. It gets a bit long after awhile but Sweet always has good stories that help you put meat on those faith bones. "

    " Having read and enjoyed many of Len Sweet's books, this one just added to that list for me. I believe in order to create a passionate group we all need to followers, including those who are called to lead. Nothing else will do. "

    " Pretty good - I appreciate the message that Jesus wasn't necessarily looking for outgoing, social leaders.....He was looking for lost people, and people who would follow Him. "

    " Best book I've read in 32 years. I finally have a solid understanding of what being a follower of Christ is and it has been...liberating! I read daily from this book. "
