It's time to leave the leadership obsession behind. It's never been about leading.
"Leadership" has become a runaway obsession for those who are called to equip the body of Christ for service in the Kingdom of God. The concept of "followership" is all but lost in the wake of this leadership fetish, a near hypnotic obsession. Jesus' clear call, and the pattern of New Testament leadership, are actually found in a pattern of "followership. "We've been told otherwise but when it comes to a movement in our churches, our families, or the workplace, everything rises or falls on followership.
Sweet proposes an intentional shift from leadership cults to followership cultures. He critiques the issue of leadership obsession but focuses on reigniting a passion for the "follow me" theme found throughout the gospels and the entire New Testament. Building on a set of metaphors/images, he stirs the imagination by showing what it means to be a follower of Christ and explains the vital cog that followership and the first follower play in helping others enter into the Kingdom of God.
"I Am A Follower" moves readers: from leaders that are over to followers that are amongfrom sages and gurus to scouts and guidesfrom Saul's armor to David's slingfrom having the right answers to asking the right questionsfrom architects to gardeners
