In today's culture, leaders are often applauded and respected while followers are often viewed as weak and passive. But scripture tells us a different story.... it says that being obedient "followers" of Christ is at the very heart of faith. Ed Stetzer talks with Biola Professors Richard Langer and Joanne Jung about our need to "follow" in the footsteps of the Savior... and how that "followership" is essential to our spiritual flourishing.
