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!

This is a very challenging book. Kyle Idleman's premise is that within western consumer influenced culture, too many people either misunderstand what it means to become a Christian, or, they are misled as to what it means to become a christian, or worst, they are not honest with themselves about what it means to become, and be, a Christian.

Whilst many books will deal with this issue by getting the reader examining theology, or creeds, or behavior, (i.e. if you do this then how could you be saved) Kyle essentially challenges the reader to consider what is Christian conversion.

Is it to make a decision that then allows you to consume as much, or as little, of whatever Christ/Christianity has to offer; is it free eternal life insurance, or the opportunity of having your 'best life now'. Or, is it making the commitment for God to change your eternal destiny and transform you from everything that you are as a natural born descendant of Adam.

Kyle endeavors to avoid the Free Grace v Lordship debate (what is the minimum/maximum a person must/can do to get/be saved) by focusing not on a debate about words and their meanings, but a debate about Jesus and reality. What does it really mean to follow Jesus.

For some readers (see amazon's us site 1 star reviews) he failed to avoid that debate and has scared some people about how seriously one should take The Faith, and to what extent living the faith should intrude into our lives/the lives of our kids.

In a sense that could have been an alternative title for Kyle's book 'taking faith seriously'.

Brilliant book!!! It has really hit many truths about the difference between a Christian and a Real Christian. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is just beginning a new journey in Christ or anyone who has been a Christian for a long time but don't feel they are bearing fruits, For the bible says in Matthew 7 that you can identify true believers by there fruits. I believe its a great tool to get your focus right, to get back on the right path.
Easy read as Kyle Idleman is funny. He is definitely straight to the point but give worldy examples, which I think is superb, the decribe his points.

Loved this book !!

If you want to be challenged, if you want the truth, if Jesus is your friend, then this book is for you. Warning, you will not misunderstand the many illustrations and calls for genuine Christianity in your personal life. This book dares you to be different.
