Transcript of Raising a Modern-day Knight

Raising a modern day
knight: By Robert Lewis True Manhood Lewis addresses in this book how, many adolescences and men are not experiencing an authentic manhood He points out three things contributing to this problem.

1. Fathers fail to deliver to their sons a clear, inspiring, biblically grounded definition of manhood.

2. Most fathers lack a directional process that calls their sons to embrace the manhood they should be able to define.

3. The absences of a ceremony.

To help out with these shortcomings he illustrates a model found in knighthood. -Today's male adolescence do not experience a definitive point in which they go from childhood to manhood. -Fathers need to give their sons three things shown in knighthood.

2. A code of conduct

- Three areas in which this skewed view can be made clear is through:
1. Community
