I read this book because my son's girlfriend gave it to him. It's just another book written by another well meaning believer who thinks he has the "to-do list" of an A+ believer in Jesus Christ. In reality what he is spreading is not the Christian way of life but religion. His list includes not h...

I am not a fan of Jesus. This book is so powerful and so convicting, I felt uncomfortable reading it. But that is exactly the point. Christianity has become too comfortable and too safe. Christians view following Jesus as getting saved, attending church services, praying before meals and before b...

One reviewer sadly commented after reading this book, "I guess I don't measure up." I would like to encourage her by saying "Of course, you don't. None of us 'measures up.' We are all sinners and that is why Jesus had to do it all. He loves you even though he knows you don't measure up." I am afr...

“Not a Fan” by Kyle Idleman was truly an incredible read. Idleman shares short stories from his own spiritual walk to help guide us through our own. His outlook on our journey as a Christian is quite inspirational and really helped to direct me. One thing that I really drew from the book was that...

Not A Fan is a bold, in-your-face book that aggressively packs a punch. It confronts anyone daring enough to ask the question, “Am I a fan or am I a follower?” From the jump, the book holds nothing back, and it asks the reader to define her relationship with Christ. It will challenge, affront, in...

Got your church T-shirt? Your “Jesus is my co-pilot” bumper sticker? What about your WWJD bracelet? Bible? Check! Some verses memorized? Check! Personalized tithe envelopes? You know this maaan! Okay, okay. Now what about Jesus? You’ve got all the paraphernalia–the outward stuff that clothes you wi...

I was fortunate to read Idleman’s book immediately after Tozer’s The Pursuit of God. I say this because “Not a Fan” is the perfect counterpart to Tozer. Idleman challenges the reader to identify themselves as a follower of Christ or a mere fan and presents the argument that many who identify them...

A good review of this book http://thegospelcoalition.org/book-re... There are some good points and also some problems with this book. The author basically teaches the "surrendered life" which is nothing new. DA Carson's associate Andy Naselli wrote his doctoral dissertation about this movement cal...

There were some points in this book that I did not agree with, but at the end of the day, it did make me question where the priorities in my life were. However, I do need to say that I would not give this book to a new Christian. The theology is a little confusing. I am, of course, basing this op...

This book's popularity is well-deserved. The text has just the right amount of quotable lines (that have you reaching for your pen to copy them down) but not enough to seem gimmick-driven. The examples/metaphors are simple, effective, accessible. The occasional moments of humor are genuinely funn...
