Not a Fan

Over the weekend I started reading Not a Fan by Kentucky pastor Kyle Idleman.  The basic premise of the book is distinguishing fans of Jesus from followers of Jesus.

Idleman defines fans as “enthusiastic admirers,” people who are “close enough to Jesus to get the benefits but not so close to require sacrifice.”  After describing characteristics of fans, Idleman argues that Jesus was looking for completely committed followers – people who count the cost of true discipleship.

Not a Fan is a quick read with a profound impact, and I recommend it highly to anyone looking to be challenged.  Click here to find out more.
