Chivalry: The Quest for a Personal Code of Honor in an Unjust World
Chivalry isn't a list of rules but a way for everyone "to live justly in an unjust world." The author uses 10 principles to show the reader how to have personal justice and how it will change our lives.
I thought the book was interesting and the author had some good ideas about being truthful, fighting injustice, etc. It seems to be aimed at teenage and college age people (which I am not) but I did enjoy the book.

Chivalry, by Zach Hunter, gives practical steps on living a life of honor towards God and man. Each chapter explains one part of the code of chivalry and the importance of applying it to each individualÃ¢ÂÂs lives. Many chapters also include personal stories of what each aspect of the code looks like, which I found both inspiring and entertaining. Some, of the topics, included in the code speak about the importance of having mentors in your life, choosing not to fear the unknown or evil, using words to build others up instead of attacking them, developing self-control and selflessness, honoring truth and keeping promises, fighting only for true justice and to protect those who canÃ¢ÂÂt fight for themselves, respecting life and freedom, and obeying the law as long as it doesnÃ¢ÂÂt go against GodÃ¢ÂÂs law. The book also gives helpful advice on living the code without giving up and living our lives with honor as well as dying in honor when our job here on Earth is done. I found this book to be very practical and important because people today seem to live lives that are very me-centered. I think that if every Christian were to live with a code, such as is found in Chivalry, then our world would be less violent and Christianity would be viewed with respect even by those who are not Christians. For one so young as Zach Hunter, he really seems to have a wisdom about him that does not come just from the world and I am impressed with the stand that he has taken with this book.

Chivalry isn't dead!
In Chivalry, Zach Hunter shares principles that Knights lived by that apply to today, as well as work synonymously with scripture.
I feel this book would be a great resource for youth groups. While boys are becoming men, and girls are becoming women, this book would be very inspiring and influential.
Great lessons. Strong biblical concepts. Highly recommended.
