I give it 4 stars because a lot of the information is redundant, and you just want to tell the author, "Yes, OK, I GET IT. Now what?" But he keeps drilling down on the distinctions of 'fan' and 'follower.' It's not until the very end that he gives a direct call to action and a lifting of the burden imposed by 95% of the book.
~The Rebecca Review
Because of the couple of negative reviews, my friend and I decided to study "Grace Walk" by Steve McVey, as well. It will be interesting to compare the two.
His overall point about believers should be a follower and not just a fan is spot on. And several of his points do help one look much more introspectively than most of us tend to do.
