Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good read and a big Challenge! 11 Jan 2012
By Mr. C. Bleakney VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading this book, I was forced to face the most challenging question I believe a Christian can ask, "Am I a follower of Jesus or just a fan?" The difference between the two answers as far as the author is concerned is a matter of life or death! I'm not so sure that I agree entirely, though, I would advocate that the difference between a mere Christian, (Someone who has put his/her trust in Christ's finished work on the cross for Salvation), and a Disciple is vast to say the least.
I do believe that in order to become a true Disciple, then, according to Luke 9:23, that the Believer must have a full surrender and dying to self experience.

The author ably describes what the true life of Discipleship looks like and what it will mean for anyone to take up their cross and follow Christ.
This is a challenging read, but to read this book and leave it down without making a choice between mere Christianity and Discipleship is not a choice!
Read it if you dare!

I found this a very thought provoking book that really challenged me in a positive way, to think about my relationship with God. I have since recommended and brought it for others.

The biggest threat to the church today is fans who call themselves Christians but aren’t actually interested in following Christ. They want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires anything from them. &quote;

There is no way to follow Jesus without him interfering with your life. Following Jesus will cost you something. Following Jesus always costs something. &quote;
