Chivalry by Zach Hunter

I was interested in the premise that chivalry is for everyone, not just a code for men and how to treat women, so I read this book.

The main criticism I have for this book is that it doesn’t offer a lot of new information.  It offers a lot of nice reminders of why we shouldn’t gossip, why we should work on our self-control, why we should remember the poor, and tell the truth, etc., but for me, it didn’t offer anything I hadn’t already read in other books.  The references to knights and the days of olde were interesting, but I wanted something more.  It might have been more effective if the author had kept the book focused on knights and the code of chivalry and how we can apply that today and not pulled in references to civil rights struggles and slavery.  Perhaps Hunter could do another book applying the lessons from slavery to life today?

However, with that being said, if you are new to Christianity, young in the faith, or are interested in a different perspective, you might really enjoy this book.  I think it would be a great book to give as a graduation gift for someone leaving home for the first time and heading off to college, or starting a new job.  It does offer encouragement and reminders of how we should treat each other.

Thank you to Net Galley for providing me with this book for review purposes.  All opinions are my own.
