Are you a fan or a follower?
The dictionary defines a fan as "an enthusiastic admirer". Fans want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrifice. 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.
About the Author
Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, will be the first person to tell you that any success he has had, or any good he has done, has been because of Christ alone. As he likes to say, “Any good God does is not because of me, but in spite of me.”
It may have started as a message, but not a fan has sparked a movement all over the world. More than a half a million books have been sold and more than 10,000 churches have used the video curriculum.
Kyle is also the author and presenter of several projects that City on a Hill Productions has produced. Those projects include H20: A Journey of Faith, The Easter Experience, and The Christmas Experience.
Kyle, who continues on his journey from fan to follower, graduated from Ozark Christian College. After planting a church in Los Angeles county, Kyle moved to Louisville, KY to be the teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church, one of the largest churches in the country with nearly 21,000 in attendance every weekend.
But Kyle would say that his job description is simply to “be the branch” because Jesus is the Vine, and apart from Him – we can do nothing.
