What does it mean to be a man? Moreover, how does a father instill these qualities in his son? By Raising a Modern-Day Knight. Beginning with a biblical perspective of manhood, 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.

Author Notes

As the teaching pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Ark., Dr. Robert Lewis has helped hundreds of men raise godly sons with this unique approach. Along with their children--Elizabeth, Rebekah, Garrett, and Mason--Robert and his wife, Sherard, make their home in Little Rock, Ark.
