Raising a Modern-Day Knight
A Father’s Role in Guiding His Son to Authentic Manhood
What does it mean to be a man? And how does a father instill these qualities in his son? 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 essentials: a vision, a code of conduct, and a “cause” (the cause of Christ and His truth!) in which to invest his life.
Complete with ceremony ideas to celebrate accomplishments and ingrain them in a boy’s mind, this book is as insightful as it is practical in raising a boy to be a visionary, radical, godly man.
“Raising a Modern-Day Knight is more than a book: it’s a movement of men who are determined to be successful where it counts – in their relationship with their sons. This book will give you the tools you need to affirm masculinity in your sons and pass on a legacy that will guide them their entire lives.”
— Dennis Rainey, President, Family Life
The medieval custom of “knighthood” offers a 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, this book will show how you, too, can confidently guide your son to the kind of authentic biblical manhood that can change our world.
