Pastor Kyle Idleman doesn't just want to be a fan of Jesus, he wants to full heartedly commit to him and be a follower of Jesus. But how can you make the leap from fan to follower? In Not a Fan Idleman uses biblical examples to show how the people who met Jesus also had to decide if they were fans or followers, and what it meant for them to then become followers. Being a follower doesn't mean that you go to church every week, that you slap a Jesus fish on the back of your car, and that you give to charity. That's what a fan does. What a follower of Jesus does, Idleman observes, is die to themselves each and every moment of the day because 'you can't say yes to following Jesus unless you say no to living for yourself.' In this three part book Idleman helps you to discover whether you are a fan or a follower, how to recognize the invitation Jesus has given, and what following Jesus looks like in your daily life. With humor and real life examples to draw you closer to Jesus, Kyle Idleman compels each and every one of us to Not Be A Fan.

Either an eye opener or offending

I listened to the audiobook after watching the movie "not a fan".
The movie was really good, but in fact just an opener to what Kyle Idleman speaks about in detail in this book.
Unlinke in the movie, there is no overall story. And even if some elements of the film are repeated, the book has so much more to say.

The core question is: "Are you just a fan of Jesus, or a you a follower". Kyle Idleman reflects this question throughout the whole book with a lot of testimonys from "real" people, a lot of explanations and parables.

I listened to the book after I had a breakdown in my life where I rethought my relationship to Jesus. In fact, the findings and conclusion to which I came by myself (or rather by the grace of god), were pretty much matched by why Kyle Idleman says in his book.
Hence I doubt, that everyone will have the same openness towards the book's content.
Some might even be offended. But one will definately reflect his own life after listening to it.

A bonus for me is, that the author himself is doing the narration. It sounds much more real to me, this way. (Maybe also because I known his voice from the movie).

I really wonder what non-christians would think after reading such a book. I guess they would either call Chrstianity insane or become a Christian themselves...
