A must for all Fathers and Sons

I found this book to be an outstanding resource. I have two young boys and I plan on using the information shared in this book to help me introduce my sons to what it means to be a man. The principles shared in this book will help any father regardless of race, relegion or societal status. Dr. Lewis was able to help me deal with issues I had regarding the death of my father at a young age. I was concerned that because he died when I was 3 years old that I would have a problem passing on to my sons what it really means to be a man. I consider the information shared by Dr. Lewis to be priceless. I highly recommend this book to all men raising boys.

A Must for Every Dad With A Son

Robert Lewis has written a top-notch, easy to understand, easy to implement book to help Christian dads rear godly, masculine sons.He defines a man as "....someone who rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously, and expects the greater reward." His definition of ideal manhood is excellent, especially his emphasis upon "rejecting passivity."Although he does not always lay out an exact plan for readers to follow without variation, he shares his own experiences and ideas as a suggested approach.The book is divided into five parts: The need for a modern-day knighthood, The Knight and his ideals, The Knight and his ceremonies, the Knight and his round table (community of men), and the Knight and his legacy. Part two, "The Knight and His Ideals" is alone worth the purchase price of the book. His suggestions for cermonies that celebrate a boy's advancement into manhood are creative.This book helped me come up with some related ideas. As a result of reading this book, I implemented a "Knights of Light" training seminar for our junior high boys (I am a pastor); I compiled info on courtesy, respecting women, etc., and we had a knighting ceremony for the guys that completed this training. Lewis has written a book that addresses a real gap in our culture; he understands masculinity, particularly Christian masculinity. Go for it, dad!

Awe-Inspiring Manhood

This book provides a road-map for the alarming responsibility a father assumes when his son is born. It helps men identify a boy's most intense, and often least verbalized, needs and offers ideas of how best to meet them. No book, that I know of, better explains why modern young men flounder in the dangerous seas of adulthood. `Raising A Modern-Day Knight' not only offers thought-provoking suggestions of how to rear a son into a courageous, awe-inspiring man; it also challenges today's father to be one.

A Must Read!

What Robert Lewis has to say, actually says volumes. This book is a must read for any father who has a son. Our world is so vague on the issues of 'authentic manhood," and the authors of this text make a noble attempt of answering those hard questions, while our society and culture remain blank. I highly recommend this book and suggest that it be read by anyone who asks such questions as : what is a man; and when does a boy become a man?

Three cheers for Robert Lewis! Finally a fathers roadmap!

Lewis has written a book that should be handed down from father to son, father to son, father to son... The similar relationships between knighthood and the men God wants us to be is amazing. By using himself and his sons as the model for this book we the reader get some insight as to how to proceed with the actions he lays out for us. If I could choose only one book to use as guide for raising my sons, this would be it.
