“Jesus never asked us to sit on the sidelines and cheer for his cause.” — Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv Are you a fan or a follower? The dictionary defines a fan as “an enthusiastic admirer.” Fans want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrifice. Fans may be fine with repeating a prayer, attending church on the weekend, and slapping a Jesus fish on their bumpers. But is that really the extent of the relationship Jesus wants? Jesus was never interested in having admirers. It’s not fans he is looking for. Not a Fan 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, Kyle 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. Download and start listening now!

    " Holds a torch to all so that we may see where our hearts truly lie. I highly recommend this book to all to help you determine if you are a follower, and if not yet, what it means to be one. Idle man writes compellingly and familiarly, almost as if he were talking to you over lunch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Jo | 2/1/2014

    " This is a must read. There are not enough stars to rate it. My son bought this book, he is 19, and thought so highly of it he not only had me read it but then gave it to our pastor. It is a very thought provoking book and while the material is a bit heavy, his humerous approach made it a very delightful read. "
