fan: an enthusiastic admirer.

In the Gospels, Jesus never seemed too interested in fans.

Is that how you define your relationship with Him? An "enthusiastic admirer"? Close enough to Jesus to get the benefits but not so close to require sacrifice?

He was looking for followers. Not just any follower though, but a...

COMPLETELY. COMMITTED. FOLLOWER.

How would things change if you lived as Jesus lived, and loved the way He loved?

Maybe you’re ready to join the hundreds of people who have stepped across a line and said:

I am not a fan.

 

Kyle Idleman knows where we live and where we could live with God’s help. His words are, at once, profound and practical. He is committed to helping us move in the right direction. If you need a helping hand in your journey, he’ll point you to the right Person.

Not a Fan is truly a cutting edge Bible study that will challenge even the most obedient Christians to re-look at their relationship with Christ. It was a true pleasure to experience this study and examine myself through the lens of a fan or a follower. I highly recommend to individuals and churches everywhere.

Football has been described as 22 men on the field in desperate need of rest, and 60,000 fans in the stands in desperate need of exercise. In the spirit of Trueblood and Bonhoeffer, Not A Fan challenges believers to get out of their seats, strap on the gear and get in the game. Not A Fan is not for the faint of heart… it’s for those who want to join a company of the committed, and to obey what they claim to believe.

Not a Fan marries the all-too-real life situations that so many of us face with the practical, timeless truths of God’s word. It helps us look behind the facade, deep to the heart, in a compelling, believable and timely way. Whether you’re kicking the tires of Christianity or have been walking in the faith for decades, these stories, and the messages behind them, will make you stop and think.

Not A Fan is one of the most novel and engaging small group studies I’ve ever seen. I love how real life, situational drama is used via an ‘embedded’ teacher to flesh out Biblical truth. Truly unique and compelling.
— Joe Battaglia, President of Renaissance Communications and Chairman, WAY-FM
Jesus never asked us to sit on the sidelines and cheer for his cause. In Idleman’s book, Not a Fan, Kyle will challenge you to grow from a fair weather fan to a full-time follower of Christ.

Not A Fan is a book that every Christian should read and regularly re-read. I started to read the manuscript and could not stop until I finished. This is a NOW message for the Church and my hope is that every believer who reads this will become an authentic follower of Christ.

Kyle Idleman is a remarkably gifted preacher, storyteller, and speaker. Not a Fan is an outstanding project that I can only hope will reach a wide viewership and touch many lives.

I encourage friends to use ‘not a fan,’ the small group discipleship study for adults. We live in a culture where so many people embrace faith on a minimal basis. In fact, the word, “Christian,” has become a minimal term and almost useless. People need to discover the real joy making Jesus Christ fully integral to all of life. This study series will help make it happen.
