In this DVD series, six 30-minute lessons of cinematic storytelling are designed to help shape today’s believer into a first-century Christ-follower.

These episodes follow the journey of Eric Nelson, a man leading a compartmentalized triple life as a pleasure-seeking rebel, a cutthroat corporate executive, and a nominal Christian. But when confronted with a near death experience, Eric embarks on a spiritual journey that transforms his commitment to Jesus Christ and tests the faith of his friends and family.

This series does NOT include the Small Group Leader Tutorial, the Leader's Guide, or the Follow's Journal. These can be purchased in the Not a Fan Small Group Study kit.

Lesson 1 – Fan or Follower

ERIC NELSON collapses. Family and friends desperately try to revive him. At a football stadium across town, Pastor KYLE IDLEMAN receives news of Eric’s heart attack. Kyle rushes to the hospital, arriving as Eric’s friends and family are given the devastating news: Eric has lost all brain function. The family makes the painful decision to let Eric go.

The next day, Kyle arrives at the Nelson home to pay his respects and offer pastoral care. As Kyle speaks with friends and family, enigmatic details of Eric’s life emerge. Eric had suffered a mild heart attack five years earlier. The near death experience caused him to completely surrender his life to Jesus. He went from fan to follower and it had a profound impact on those around him. ANNA, Eric’s wife, is forced to evaluate what really matters in life. DARREN, Eric’s longtime business associate, subtly indicates that their friendship was strained when Eric took a new job. Eric’s father, BILL, disliked the new job and the people with whom Eric worked - and claims his objections were based on Christian principle. GARY, Eric’s friend since High School, alludes to Eric’s dark past and a subsequent transformation.

Lesson 2 – Follow Me

As Gary examines his own life in the wake of Eric’s death; he recalls their days of pleasure-seeking rebellion. Driven to the brink by a demanding job and an imploding marriage, Eric collapses in Gary’s apartment from a non-fatal heart attack. Convinced he’s received a divine wake-up call that must be answered, Eric is never the same again. Now, devastated by the death of his friend, Gary must decide what path he will take.

Lesson 3 – What Must I Do

From his high-rise office, Darren reflects on Eric’s transformation from cutthroat businessman to compassionate Christ-follower. Darren’s Christian convictions are initially rattled by Eric’s business ethics, but, as Eric coldly explains, “This isn’t church. It’s business.” By the time Eric has a change of heart, Darren has learned to compartmentalize his faith and to view conscience as an obstacle to prosperity. When both men are asked to skirt their stated Christian convictions for the sake of keeping their jobs, Eric courageously follows the way of Christ and Darren walks away sad.

Lesson 4 - Bury the Dead

Anna remembers life after Eric recommitted to their marriage and began to take his faith seriously. She quickly finds herself disturbed at how seriously - and stubbornly resists his attempts to scale back their extravagant lifestyle for the sake of helping the less fortunate. After Eric’s ethical stand results in his unemployment, luxurious living is no longer an option. As all her worldly comforts are stripped away, Anna experiences first-hand the tremendous cost of following Jesus Christ.

Lesson 5 - Dead Men's Bones

Bill disapproves of Eric’s new job and his misguided attempts to help “those people” at the expense of providing for his own family. Bill takes particular issue with Lily, a pregnant teenager who has moved in with the Nelsons. Eric’s sister, Kim, suffers a miscarriage and is further devastated when Bill suggests the tragedy is the result of sin in her life. Enraged, Eric confronts his father about his merciless self-righteousness. Days later, Eric offers the olive branch and tells Bill he loves him. Bill is silent. Minutes later, Bill and his family watch in horror as Eric suffers his fatal heart attack.

Lesson 6 - Decision Time

As Natalie prepares for her father’s funeral, she remembers serving with him at his new job-a homeless shelter. When she grows increasingly resentful at the work and the ingratitude of a belligerent young female resident, Eric makes the painful decision to bar Natalie from volunteering. Natalie defiantly returns determined to prove that she, like her father, is genuine and willing to make painful sacrifices for her faith. Eric tells her that what separates the genuine from the fake is not dutiful sacrifice, but love. Natalie apologizes to the testy resident, who turns out to be Lily. After the funeral, the Nelson family is profoundly moved at the effect Eric’s life had on so many people. Natalie and Anna agree that Eric truly led an abundant life, and they want to do the same.

Grace is Greater Series

Want to stream this series instead? Stream Now

We’ve all experienced failures, bitterness, or setbacks. We carry unseen burdens that rob us of joy, keep us from praying, and even cause us to doubt God.

Bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman wants to remind us that God’s grace is greater. Even when it doesn't make sense. Even when it doesn’t feel fair. God’s grace covers everything we’ve done. And the best way (perhaps the only real way) to understand it, is to experience it.

The Grace Is Greater series uses real stories to lead you to an understanding of grace that is bigger than your mistakes, your disappointments, your desire for revenge, and your seemingly impossible situations. Through four incredible testimonies, Kyle Idleman will remind you that no sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God's grace cannot transform your heart and rewrite your story.

Gods at War Series

Want to stream this series instead? Stream Now

In a new twist to the cinematic style City on a Hill has become known for, this 6 episode series was filmed in a docudrama style – Narrated by Kyle and featuring the late Chuck Colson (Prison Fellowship), Chuck Bentley (Crown Financial Ministries) and others telling their true stories. In these compelling stories, we will see some reflection of ourselves, and recognize the true battle that lies at the heart of all our sin struggles. These stories also point the way to victory, as we see the kind of life-transforming power that Christ is ready to pour out in our lives as well.

Christians and the church rightfully place an emphasis on identifying and eradicating sin…but what if we’re actually missing the point? What if all sin has a common root, a core issue that we typically fail to address? In his latest work, Kyle Idleman challenges us with the thought that perhaps all sin springs from the same source – IDOLATRY. While we may not see many “graven images” in our world today, Kyle argues that there are still countless gods passionately at war for the throne of our hearts. If we put the wrong god on the throne, our lives will be thrown into chaos, and all our efforts at sin management will be futile. Only by recognizing our misplaced worship and by enthroning Jesus can we experience freedom and life.

Featuring the true testimonies of author and spoken word artist Jefferson Bethke, NBA star Landry Fields, founder and director of Scarlet Hope Rachelle Starr, and the former U.S. manager of Apple Records Ken Mansfield – unpack the counterintuitive truths of Jesus in these four episodes:


There is a beauty in coming to the end of ourselves as we realize that we aren’t strong enough, smart enough, or talented enough to navigate life on our own. Ironically, that’s when we are in the best position to be used by God in significant ways.

AHA Series

This kit contains everything you need to host a group (minus the snacks). Includes: one Series, one Leader’s Guide, one Journal, and various bonus items that vary per title.

Extra Leader’s Guides
Some groups prefer for each participant to have their own leader’s guide. The Leader's Guide is designed to facilitate meaningful discussion by providing carefully crafted questions and guidance to compliment the Series. It is easy to follow and includes helpful tips on how to lead a small group.
Extra Journals
If you want the best experience for your small group, we recommend that each person in the group also uses the journal. One is included for you in the kit, but additional copies can be purchased a la cart.



The Pastor’s Kit includes everything needed to plan a sermon series: a special video message for pastors, video guide for implementing a church-wide program, sermon transcripts with notes, video clips to accompany sermons, sermon bumpers (short video clip to introduce each week’s sermon), and digital art files to use in creation of bulletins and other promo materials.

Many of our studies are also books. While the book and study complement each other and cover the same themes, they are not designed to be used simultaneously. The Journal and Leader’s Guide products are designed for the purpose of a guided study.


For select titles you will find t-shirts, wristbands, artwork or other accessories may be available. We prefer to only create items that we feel will enhance the experience of that study (for example, the not a fan t-shirt has led to many conversations about Jesus and even stories of conversion).
