Leonard introduces this writing with a beautiful illustration of a dancing man on a hill (with reference to a video clip on YouTube) and what it means to be a “first follower”. The book is then divided into three parts – what it means to follow Jesus in 1) the way, 2) the truth, and 3) the life.
Leonard’s emphasis on the value of being a “first follower” instead of a leader just seems to be a matter of semantics. In my opinion, a first follower is essentially the same as a servant leader. Still there was value to what he had to say if you can overlook this point. While he has a poetic way of illustrating what it means to follow Jesus Christ, this book was hard to read, very long, and difficult to finish.
