I had purchased this for my small group study at church which I facilitate. Most of the people in the group didn't use their journal due to not having the time to sit down at least three times a day to answer the questions and do the exercises. The few who did, reported that it was very powerful. I feel that this journal would work in a group study where you have at least an hour and a half per week (we had an hour) to go over everything in the study. To keep people on task, they shouldn't miss any sessions. I will be trying this small group study again soon and will rewrite my review if anything changes.

This journal is a thought provoking 42 day option that follows along with the rest of the Not a Fan material. I am using it in a small group study of 15. It has helped to initiate additional conversation and challenge to an already awesome study experience. I would highly recommend this journal.

Found over half of the journal was questions with obvious answers for mature Christians such as "is it okay to do drugs?" For a new Christian it might be useful but most of our group gave up on the journal about half way through.

This book will really hep you examine if you have committed your life, your all to Christ. Too often we "play church" or treat it as the "social club all good people belong to." This book will help you to understand that Christianity is not a spectator sport and challenge and motivate you to make some changes in your life, in your walk with Christ.

This journal really is a great product to accompany the Not a Fan: DVD series. This provides great challenges everyday to really make you consider what you are willing to do to follow Jesus. Highly recommend this journal to anyone who wants to really consider what it takes to follow.

This is an exceptional, eye-opening study. Kyle Idleman essentially gets to the core of being a true follower of Jesus. Our small study group is almost finished with the study and it has encouraged all of us to look deeper.

The journal is a good tool, very different in it's style of asking 4 readings per day and not just one sitting. It is a good immersion into the subject matter, just different.

One of the best books I have read because it is practical and challenges you to question your relationship with Christ. Are you a FaN? or are you a true follower? Are you sure that you are saved? or are you a person who thinks your saved and will be told "I never knew you."

Our small group has been doing the small group DVD along with the Follower's Journal. This study has made us all take a deeper look at what it means to be a follower (and not just a fan) of Jesus.

Dont buy this unless you are ready to really look at your life for change. Kyle uses practical exercises to make the reader look at themselves and where they are with Christ. No doubt the most impact in my church as a study outside of the Bible.
I highly recommend.

A thought provoking and engaging approach it is a one of a kind type journal which helps you examine what it means to truly follow Jesus it challenges you to grow as you journey from a fan to a true follower of Jesus to daily commit to follow Him, this is so powerful. You have got to get the whole study DVD kit you will not regret it, but be completely change by it! God has use Kyle Idleman in a awesome powerful way to help us to be real in Jesus and be true followers not fans. God Bless you Kyle Idleman in all you do for His Glory!
