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.
It is media like this along with instructional workbooks that will become the outreach tool of the future.
City on a Hill produces the highest quality projects. Not a Fan is their next offering and should be seen by every church in America.
This book disrupts the status quo and challenges readers to follow Christ with greater devotion.
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.
Kyle Idleman’s Not a Fan is a crucial message for our time. It’s a powerful call to commitment and to following Jesus with all our hearts that has challenged me in the best of ways!
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.
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.
