Of Knights and Fair Maidens
Is True Romance Possible in the 21st Century?
Jeff and Danielle were determined to do things differently. So, before the era of “True Love Waits” or the writing of I Kissed Dating Goodbye, they interviewed married couples to discover the keys to a successful courtship. Applying these principles in their own relationship, they wrote this humorous, heart-warming book. Of Knights and Fair Maidens has given tens of thousands of young couples honest and straightforward counsel about the best way to prepare for marriage.
15 years later, this is an update of the original version, in hardcover.
“Jeff and Danielle prove that God’s plan for relationships is not out of date or old-fashioned. It’s for the adventurous, courageous and most importantly, romantic Christian single who wants God’s best in relationships and marriage.”
— Joshua Harris, author of well-known books on courtship including Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship
“We have been blessed by reading Of Knights and Fair Maidens, because it is so practical. Every Christian should have a copy to use as a handbook for relationships.”
— Jim Ryun, world-record runner, Olympian, and U.S. Congressman
