Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

Not a Fan has already called more than one million listeners to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple—moving from fan to follower in their relationship with Jesus.

After years of serving God, pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman had a startling revelation: for too long, he had been living as a fan of Jesus; someone who tried to make Christianity seem as appealing, comfortable, and convenient as he possibly could to others. Idleman decided something had to change--he needed to embark on the journey of becoming a completely committed follower of God, not just a fan.

Fans want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrifice, while followers are all in and completely committed to Christ. Not a Fan gives you the tools you need to determine exactly where you stand when it comes to your relationship with Jesus.

No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness and a touch of humor, Idleman invites you to:

  • Examine your relationship with God
  • Determine if you're following Jesus or just following the rules
  • Pray the way Jesus prayed
  • Start truly living for the one who gave his all for you

This expanded and updated version of Not a Fan also includes a new introduction and an entirely new chapter about how to practically live out the book's core message.

Join Idleman as he challenges you to take an honest look at your relationship with Jesus and discover what it really means to be a follower.

Such a powerful book!

I think if you ever read one Christian book in your entire life, this should be that book. It has absolutely revolutionized my walk with Christ and made it full of life. I would recommend this to anyone, whether you are a new believer or old, or someone who wants to learn more about following Jesus.

Don’t just listen, the change is doing it.

Second listen, but not the last. Following is a daily decision. Some days you won’t feel like putting in the work, those are the most revealing if you keep your eyes on Jesus. You can’t do it, He can!

Not a fan?

Never thought of it this way; fan or follower. I liked the book. I'm offering it to my small group at church to do a book study on. We are going to offer hard copy or audio book as choices.

To the heart of all issues!

our consumer culture has led us to build consumer churches. We tell people to come to Jesus so He can fix your pain and then give you personal gain. Jesus has always said "Come to me and I'll make you fishers of men. " Kyle does a stellar job of showing us what Jesus asked of us to be His Follower!
