Publishers Description Following helps us. As upside down as it sounds, it frees us. It takes us out of the bondage of our own selfishness and vanity and places us in an arena that is outside of ourselves. It is full of adventure and wonder and discovery because we are not at the controls and don't know what each new turn will bring. We really live when we follow, and it is a noble life. Followers live for the prestige, recognition, and glory of Another. Life is no longer centered on self. And the less focused that we are on self, the more we seem to help ourselves at the core of our being. God does a remarkable thing by placing us in unique human relationships. Those relationships become the grid of how well we play out the reality or lack of it as it relates to followship. The relationship that God has ordained for some has placed them in a positions where they must be a good leader simply because of the many people for which they are. However they must be good followers because all of those people must have an example of what a good follower looks like. Followship will give you a fresh perspective in your Christian walk.

Perfect for Small Group Discussions Oct 2, 2006
In his slim book "Followship: The Essence of Our Journey with Jesus," Pastor Jerry Gillis offers readers six lessons on more closely following Jesus.
We're reminded that following Jesus should be our priority, and that doing so requires that we advance, not stand still. We're also reminded that we need to be authentic, and have faith and courage.
While Jerry's lessons really made me think, the book soars because of Jerry's writing style. He uses a warm, conversational tone, and doesn't hesitate to include humor and personal anecdotes. Too, Jerry inspires by example. In both his personal life and as pastor of a flourishing church, his primary goal is to follow Jesus.
I used this book as a daily devotional, but it could be used very effectively in small group discussions.
