To be or not to be … Fake or Follower that is the question that every believer is going to have to answer at some point whether in the here and now or on the other side of eternity.

 

Do I want to merely slide into heaven and live as I please while still on earth?”—Andi Andrew

 

This book caused me to take a good long hard look in the mirror and ask God to examine my heart.  I believe that it is important that we truly examine our hearts and ask ourselves the tough question:  Am I a fake?  Or Am I a Follower?

 

As a ministry leader, this book also challenged me to ask myself a question that Andi herself asked: “Am I leading others to be fake and go through the motions of Christianity or am I living authentically and showing what it means to follow Jesus?”

 

In my own life, publicly and privately, I do my utmost to live as authentically as I can. Of course, I am not perfect, I mean who is?  But I do strive to be a “what you see is what you get” type person.  Yet, this book challenged me in ways I hadn’t thought of before.  It made me realize, there are areas in my life that I could do better, I could go deeper, I could be more transparent. If we are honest with ourselves, we should be able to admit that we all have things in our life that we are working through.

 

I appreciated that as I read Andi’s words, I often found myself, nodding my head and thinking “yep, I’ve said that before.”  Yes, I believe that too.” Or “Yes, I have experienced that as well.”

 

At the end of each chapter Andi also has included three “Making it Real” Questions, designed to get you asking the tough questions relating to the chapter content.

 

The title: “Fake or Follower drew me in and I knew I needed to read this one.  I am glad I did.  Andi is a powerful voice in the church today and though she may seem young to some, she has wisdom and first-hand experience of what she has written about.

 

My prayer is that we each have the courage to make the necessary adjustments in our own lives and attitudes to live authentically as a follower of Jesus Christ.

 

My Amazon Review:

To be or not to be … Fake or Follower that is the question that every believer is going to have to answer at some point whether in the here and now or on the other side of eternity.

I want to be considered a follower of Christ and not a faker, but the truth is there have been times in my Christian walk that I would have fallen in the faker category.  I know, it’s not great to admit, but it’s the truth. Even times as a mature believer and follower of Christ, I know what it takes to fake it or be authentic and the real danger lies within.  As a pastor and ministry leader I appreciate the way Andi Andrew doesn’t hold back.  She doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to the truth and calling things the way there are.  Every person who calls themselves a follower of Christ needs to read this book.  As a pastor and ministry leader, I want the people under my leadership to read it. I was convicted at times to repent of my own attitude’s, but always inspired to live more authentically and to go deep! There are 10 power packed chapters where Andi covers everything from shallow faith, killing sacred cows, offense in the church, reconciliation in community, and living toward eternity.  If you liked She is Free you will LOVE Fake or Follower!
