Not A Fan: Teen Edition by Kyle Idleman

About the Book
If someone asked, 'Are you a fan of Jesus?', how would you answer? 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?

My Thoughts
What a book! Kyle Idleman really makes you truly look at your walk with God and see it as it really is. I was constantly being challenged as I read this and I began to see areas in my life where I was behaving more like a fan than a follower of Jesus. I would honestly recommend this book to anyone-it's a life-changer.

Hmmm, that's a good question. Maybe I should really think how I'm a fan of Jesus. Great review!

Btw, I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award!
