Are you a fan or a follower of Jesus? Kyle Idleman is going to show you what it is to be a follower and not a fan, as many of us are. This book begins with a must read prologue and quickly moves onto part one. In part one, you must decide whether or not you are a fan or a follower. Be honest! Part two is “an invitation to follow” and Part three, “following Jesus. wherever. whenever. whatever.”
About the author- Kyle Idleman currently works as a teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church, the fifth largest church in America. He lives with his wife and four children.
I really enjoyed this book. After I finished this book I have decided that I am a fan who needs to work much harder at being a follower. Not a Fan has shown me time and time again that there is so much more to being a follower of Jesus.
Each chapter is set up to it talks a bit about Jesus and some of his fans/followers and then you learn about the difference between a fan and a follower, then decide which you are. Later in the book it shows how you need to follow Jesus.
The testimonies at the end of some chapters are good. They show how Jesus has truly changed peoples’ lives. They are also a testament to Kyle Idleman and how important this subject is to him. It is very fun to read a book that the author is very passionate about and it is evident in Not a Fan. It makes me passionate about being a follower and not a fan.
Would I recommend? This book should be read by one and all. Not a Fan definitely should read by teenagers and used in their Sabbath classes, so they will always know how to be a follower of Jesus and not a fan.
