Not a Fan
Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus Christ issued a compelling and challenging invitation: “Follow Me.” Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn't want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers. Built around the engaging approach of Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, this one of a kind small group study, sermon series, movie, and book examines what it means to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus.

Are you a fan or a follower? The dictionary defines a fan as "an enthusiastic admirer". Fans wan to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrafice. The Not a Fan book by Kyle Idleman challenges you to consider what it means to call yourself a Christian. With a direct frankness that you're not likely to hear in Sunday school class, Kyle invites you to take an honest look at your relationship with Jesus. His call to follow may seem radical to us, but Jesus desires it for every believer.
PLEASE NOTE: this book is complimentary to the Not a Fan Small Group Study but was not developed to be used in conjunction with it. If you are looking for a companion resource to the Study, check out the "Follower's Journal".Learn More
