"Follow Me."

These two words echo the heart-defining call of our Lord Jesus Christ to his disciples.

Sadly, this life-changing invitation has lost much of its original meaning. Immersed in a society that worships success, we have succumbed to a trendy fixation with leadership. In I Am a Follower, author Leonard Sweet explains how Christians in a twenty-first-century corporate-obsessed culture have shifted away from a Jesus art of following toward a popularized form of leading.

Through a colorful mélange of practical applications, imaginative metaphors, and probing biblical exposition based in gospel truth, Sweet reveals that the summons of Jesus and the message of the New Testament point clearly to an emphasis not on imitation but on incarnation, not on leading but on following.

Join Sweet on an exciting and intentional journey from leadership cult to followership culture. Discover for yourself the way, the truth, and the abundant life of following Jesus Christ and what it truly means to “Follow Me!”

    " 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. "
