If Jesus were to sit down with you right now and have a DTR (Define the Relationship) conversation, how would you respond? In Not a Fan Student Edition, bestselling author Kyle Idleman challenges you to go beyond fandom into a true follower relationship with Jesus.

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. That’s a 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 student 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?

Many of today's students know about Jesus—a teacher who traveled around the Jewish countryside giving sermons, healing diseases, and casting out demons, before finally dying on the cross to save humanity. Some may even believe Jesus died for their sins. But for many students, their relationship with Christ is similar to the feelings they have for their favorite band—they know the facts, know the greatest hits, and may have the gear that shows their loyalty. In short, they're fans of Jesus. But is that enough?

Similar to the adult book, Not a Fan: Student Edition includes funny stories, personal reflections, and deep, biblical content, calling teenagers to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the one who gave his all for them.

What do Netflix, our desire for the corner office, and that perfect picture we just posted on Instagram have to do with each other? None of these things is wrong in itself. But when we begin to allow entertainment, success, or social media to control us, we miss out on the joy of God’s rule in our hearts.

In Gods at War, Pastor Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of Not a Fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives.

According to Idleman, idolatry isn’t an issue?it is the issue.

By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success, and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire.

In this updated edition, Pastor Kyle adds a new introduction as well as new content about the battle many of us face with technology—whether we are tempted to send just one more text, stay online when our bodies need rest, or find ourselves putting email before in-person relationships. How can we seek God with our whole hearts instead?

Using true, powerful, and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, Gods at War illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God—enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.

Together for the first time! Three transformational books from Kyle Idleman.

AHA: We've all had "aha!" moments in our lives, times when a sudden revelation surprises us with insight. According to pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman, we can experience this same kind of "aha!" in our spiritual lives. With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements can draw us closer to God and change our lives for good. Awakening to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed honesty. This realization leads to action, obeying God's commands and following the example set by Christ. As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision—an AHA moment that leads us home to our loving Father.

40 Days to Lasting Change: Do you want to see change in your life—but don't know how to get there? In this thoughtful devotional, Kyle Idleman invites you to address that behavior or thought pattern using three key elements: You Awaken to the reality of your spiritual condition; you see yourself and your need for a Savior with brutal Honesty; and this realization leads to Action as you follow Christ's example. Drawing on the example of the Prodigal Son, Idleman shows us why each of these three elements is essential to lasting spiritual transformation and gives us practical tools to live them out.

Praying for Your Prodigal: A book for parents and family members of those who are far from God, Praying for Your Prodigal draws on insights from AHA to help readers pray—and hope—for their prodigal. In this hope-filled, honest book Kyle Idleman offers stories about prodigals specifically for parents and grandparents of prodigals, as well as a series of prayers for readers to work through as they offer their prodigals to God.
 
En Dioses en guerra, Kyle Idleman, autor del libro best seller No soy fan, ayuda a todos los creyentes a reconocer que hay falsos dioses que luchan dentro de cada uno de nosotros, y se disputan el lugar de la gloria y el control en nuestra vida. Lo que nos impide seguir verdaderamente a Jesús es que nuestro corazón anda tras algo o alguien distinto. Aunque tal vez eso que buscamos no sea como las “imágenes talladas” del pasado, en realidad son los ídolos de la vida moderna. Detrás del pecado con el que estás luchando, el desaliento al que te enfrentas y la falta de propósito con la que estás viviendo, hay un dios falso que está ganando la guerra por el control de tu corazón.Según Idleman, la idolatría no es un problema; es el problema.A base de hacer unas profundas preguntas, Idleman revela cuáles dioses falsos está permitiendo cada uno de nosotros que ocupen el trono de nuestra vida. ¿Para qué te sacrificas? ¿Qué te hace enojar? ¿Qué te causa preocupación? ¿De quién anhelas recibir el aplauso? Todos estamos programados para la adoración, pero con frecuencia terminamos valorando y honrando a los ídolos del dinero, el sexo, la comida, el romance, el éxito y muchos otros, que nos alejan de la relación íntima con Dios que queremos tener.Dioses en guerra, utilizando los testimonios reales, poderosos y sinceros de aquellos que han tenido que luchar en cada uno de estos aspectos, ilustra un claro camino para alejarnos del quebrantamiento de corazón de nuestra idolatría del siglo 21, para volver al corazón de Dios, capacitándonos para ser realmente unos seguidores de Jesús totalmente consagrados.
