Not a Fan

By Kyle Idleman

Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus Christ issued a compelling and challenging invitation: “Follow Me.” Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers. This one of a kind small group study examines what it means to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus

    I really like this study. I’ve done it several times, and I truly believe that it is a study everyone should do. It really digs deep and will open your eyes to several things no matter what your walk with Christ is. Again, I can’t stress how much I believe everyone should ado this study at least once.

    I highly recommend this study. My small group did this study last spring. The DVDs were innovative, well-done and generated a lot of discussion amongst my group. The individual characters in the “movie” represented various positions along the spectrum of Christian commitment, prompting some good introspection. The women who had to miss a week definitely wanted to borrow the DVDs to see what they had missed. The book was also very thought-provoking and really caused us to take a fresh look at the extent to which we are living out our faith, as well as the reasons that keep us from doing so to the extent we should. As a result, the study promoted bonding within the group as the ladies were able to sympathize with each other and challenge and pray for each other. The Leader’s Guide is helpful. The Follower’s Journal was not much used by the ladies in my group although they each had one.

    Our group loved this study. The videos were very professionally done, good acting and images. This study will have you internalizing what your are reading and discussing. I do not recommend buying journals for each member to do, as it requires input many times during the day. To do it correctly you need to find time during the day to write, which most people can’t do and still keep their jobs. This study will make a small group bond more, and become more cohesive.
