Not a Fan

I am currently reading the book Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman with the Pastors and Elders at LifePoint. It is a very good book thus far. The challenge Idleman brings to the reader deals with the difference between following Jesus and merely associating with Him. His goal is to confront you with the reality of what it really means to be a Christian.

It is a sad but clear indictment that a book like this is so vital and necessary in the world we live in today. It is written for Christians as a needed corrective to the shallow, consumeristic, non-committal “faith” that we often confront (in ourselves and in others) in the church world. Idleman’s message is certainly resonating as well, as the book has become a major best-seller overnight.

I’ve been enjoying the challenge and Idleman’s humorous writing style so far. I’m still fairly early in the book, and I’ll post a fuller review when I finish it. I thought I’d get the word out on it early, as I think Not a Fan is a great complement to our opening passage (Mark 8:34-38) in the Jesus Uncensored series tomorrow morning.

    We’ve watched the TV series, but haven’t read the book yet. Loved the series. A must watch.
