Do you want your life to count for Christ? Would you like to make a real impact for God's kingdom in this world? You can---and you don't have to be a great leader for it to happen. Just a good follower. In Following Christ, Stowell shows why Christ's command to "Follow me" isn't merely the starting point of Christianity. It's the very heartbeat of vibrant, effective faith. You'll discover - What a "non-negotiated follower" looks like - Why God does his best work through followers - Why self-directed living is a recipe for emptiness - What makes Christ so worth following - What it means to pick up your cross - Why a close walk with Jesus is the key to effective living.

Leadership. Power. Position. We live in a day when high profiles have become synonymous with effectiveness and usefulness. But what happens to those who are not built to be leaders? Following Christ paints a compelling portrait of Christianity the way God intended it to be . . . a joyous, growing closeness with Christ.
