not a fan. bookAre you a follower of Jesus?

Don’t answer too quickly.
In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Consider it a “Define the Relationship” conversation to determine exactly where you stand. You may indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who admires Jesus but isn’t ready to let him cramp your style. Then again, maybe you’re not into Jesus, period.
In any case, don’t take the question—Are you a follower of Jesus?—lightly.
Some people don’t know what they’ve said yes to and other people don’t realize what they’ve said no to, says {rokbox text=|Pastor Kyle Idleman| size=|776 255|}images/kyle_bio.jpg{/rokbox} . But Jesus is ready to clearly define the relationship he wants with his followers.
Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave his all for you.


not a fan.  teen edition



not a fan.  teen edition

You attend every movie featuring a certain actor, you know the stats of your sports hero, and you can recite lyrics from your favorite songs. In short, you're a huge fan. But are you treating Jesus the same as the other people you admire?

The truth is Jesus wants more than the church attendance, occasional prayer, and the ability to recite Scripture - the fan response. He's looking for people who are actually willing to sacrifice in order to follow him.

In this teen edition of Not a Fan, Kyle Idleman uses humor, personal stories, and biblical truth as he challenges you to look at what it means to call yourself a Christian and follow the radical call Jesus presents. So, will you be a fan, or a follower?

"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."
--Neal Joseph
Sr. VP of International Development, Compassion International
"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."
--Richard L. Gathro, Ed.D.
Dean, Nyack College
"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."
--Rev. Jon Kulaga, Ph.D.
Provost, Asbury University
"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
"It is media like this along with instructional workbooks that will become the outreach tool of the future."
--Darrel Billups
Executive Director, National Coalition of Men's Ministries
"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."
--Matt Crouch,
CEO of Generation Entertainment
