With a frankness that many readers are not likely to hear in church or Sunday school class, Kyle offers an invitation to take an honest look at one's relationship with Jesus. His call to follow may seem radical. It is more about repentance than forgiveness, more about surrender than salvation, more about brokenness than happiness, and more about death than about life. It's not a comfortable and reassuring path. It's certainly not about just being a fan of Jesus, sitting on the sidelines cheering for his cause. It's about being a true follower where a person lives into their new identity in Christ.
