We need definitions and working models of Biblical manhood today. Lewis gives us just that in this work. I am reading this book to my 10 year-old son, and he knows the definition of a "Real Man"--he has the four Biblical principles that Lewis sets forth here framed and sitting on his dresser, and we have been living by these principles for years. My family makes use of ceremonies to mark meaningful events, and we are currently designing a family crest together to display in our home. This work is so good that I've given away three copies of it already and plan on giving away more. If you care about your son growing into a man of godly virtue, you will want to read this book!
This book changed my son's life! My husband and two other fathers took their sons on a special canoe trip and had designated stops where the fathers shared a lesson from this book. Our son changed in an amazing Godly way. He became a young man with a heart for service. He died in an airplane crash while serving his Lord on the mission field in Taiwan.His heart was changed by this book.
If you are a father of a son, this is a must read. I was so inspired by this book I am now starting a "Knights in Training" group in our area. I wanted to create a "Community of Men" and a support group to keep up the training with my son.
