Item Description...
What does it mean to be a man? Moreover, how does a father instill these qualities in his son? Using as an example the process by which a boy moved through the medieval stages of knighthood, author Robert Lewis identifies parallel stages for today?s fathers to create ceremonies to commemorate significant milestones in a young man?s journey toward becoming a modern-day knight. Beginning with a biblical perspective of manhood, author-pastor Robert Lewis shares a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man by equipping him with three essential elements: a vision, a code of conduct, and a cause (Christianity) in which to invest his life. Complete with ceremony ideas to celebrate accomplishments and ingrain them in his mind, this softcover is as insightful as it is practical in raising a boy to be a chivalrous, godly man

Publishers Description
What does it mean to be a man? Moreover, how do you as a father instill that reality in your son? By "Raising a Modern-Day Knight."The medieval custom of knighthood offers an unique approach to shaping a boy into a strong, godly man. Centuries ago, select boys went through a rigorous, years-long process of clearly defined objectives, goals, and ceremonies--with the hope of achieving knighthood. Along the way, they acquired a boldly masculine vision, an uncompromising code of conduct, and a noble cause in which to invest their lives. They were the heroes of their age.In much the same way, "Raising a Modern-Day Knight" will show how you, too, can confidently guide your son to the kind of authentic, biblical manhood that can change out world. Complete with ceremony ideas to celebrate accomplishments and ingrain them in the mind of a knight-in-training, this resource is as insightful as it is practical in raising a boy to be a chivalrous, godly man.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A father and son relationship can only benefit from this book  Dec 4, 2008
Don't miss the point of this book, Knighthood as defined by the author involves becoming a real man through faith and walking with Christ. This text is talking about biblical manhood. The author helps to point out that a boy can for example become an excellent student through study and determination under a parents tutelage but still end up uneducated in the truly important things in life. A father can even train a son to be an Olympic medalist but he can still turn out to be a miserable human being.

As a father doing such things as getting down on the floor and playing with your son and being involved in a sons activities, schooling and sports are very important - but don't be confused all of those things aren't enough. This book points out the need for benchmarking and rites of passage for young boys within a community of Godly men.

If you come from a family that the father is or was absent, due to divorce, or death - and haven't ever been "knighted" by another father figure - a substitute like a stepfather, grandfather, an older brother, family friend, a coach, or a special teacher then this book will be of some use to you raising your boy on his life's journey. I am a Christian and have a son. I studied this text with a small group of men at a men's group at my church. One of the reasons this book and its ideas are so warmly received is because so many fathers have never been "knighted" themselves. I will agree that yes some of these things from the book can be learned in a classroom, in the sports arena, locker room, scouts, or in the military - but definitely not ALL of these things and probably not with a focus on putting God first. The books strongest concept is that a real man rejects passivity; a real man accepts responsibility; a real man leads courageously and finally, a real man expects the greater reward.

This is a GREAT group study book for men because it provides the catalyst for discussions on topics men rarely talk about. It is also very good as an audio book for the car. The only downside I have found is that the audio book can only be purchased on cassette.

Every Man Needs to Read This  Sep 13, 2008
I cannot thank Robert Lewis enough for this book. I pastor a church and will be ordering the "Raising a Modern Day Night" DVD series, as well as enough books for the men in my church. I am going to teach a class where our men read a chapter or two at a time and then get together and discuss what we are learning. I have already mentioned this to a couple of men in the Church and both of them said that they themselves wanted to be a modern day night. Robert Lewis also has a .com website called Mensfraternity where I am going to be ordering his Manhood series for myself and my church.

The book is divided into five sections. They are "The Need For Modern Day Knights", where Lewis lays out the desperate need in the modern world for fathers to take their role as dad seriously; "The Knight and his Ideals", where a vision of manhood, code of conduct and the need for a transcendent cause being instilled in our sons is laid out; "The Knight and His Ceremonies", which for me was the most interesting part of the book; "The Knight and His Round Table", which speaks of the community of men that your son needs around him to reinforce the stuff discussed in section 2; "The Knight and His Legacy", which has a very important chapter for dad's who think that they have blown it and it is too late for them.
I cannot recommend this book strongly enough to every man. Some men will say "I don't have any sons", but every man has been a son and this book will heal and help you in your manhood or in your relationship with your father. May God richly bless you as you take the journey through this great book. Buy it, I promise you will not regret it.
helpful, but incomplete  Sep 7, 2008
Lewis addresses a major need in our society: raising our boys into men. This is a timely message because we live in a society that has completely forgotten that there is such a thing. Or else its definition of a man is far short of what the Bible calls 'a man'. Lewis offers many helpful tips on how to celebrate rites of passage from boyhood to manhood - tips that I may just use with my own sons.
That said, I felt that his overall view of what a man is still fell short of the biblical standard. What was lacking in this book was 'how' this is done. To come up with good insight and goals to strive for in wanting to become a man is one thing - to show young men 'how' that is to be done is quite another. Our power to become men and to live like men and to treat women as they should be treated and to stand for truth the way we're called to is rooted firmly in Jesus Christ, not in our best intentions to be men. I'm not sure that Lewis wouldn't agree with this; however, I did not read much of it in his book.
We cannot just give ourselves a good vision of manhood and then strive, in our own best intentions, to live it out. We WILL fail at this if it is not rooted in our life source Himself, Jesus Christ. I appreciate what Lewis has done - he has narrowed the gap between what little writing is out there on biblical manhood and what should be. But I would have liked to have seen our Savior magnified more as the Cornerstone for how such men are made and sustained.
Many good insights  Jul 18, 2008
As I began reading this book, my initial reaction was negative. The author obviously was portraying knighthood in a romantic fashion, one drawn more from Hollywood movies than research in the area. It wasn't long, however, that I gave him a mulligan on that one and listened to the more important points he was making. I finally decided that if he wanted to use a romanticized notion of knighthood, I could deal with that because he was also saying a lot of things that needed saying. Lewis' premise is that boys have know idea what a man is. That resonated. I also liked his principles of manhood: A real man rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously and expects the greater reward. Even more appealing to me was his assertion that ceremonies that mark key life passages in ways that make them memorable for a lifetime are important. While I am proud of the men my sons have grown to be, even without the book, I can see how memorable ceremonies in their lives would have been advantageous. All in all, this is a book with enough insights in it that it would be worth the time of any father, but especially of boys in the 10-12 year-old age range.
modern day knight  Jun 19, 2008
The book is very helpful with the raising of a boy. It is only helpful if you are willing to follow the instructions and perform or have the ceremonies.
