"We have been blessed by reading "Of Knights and Fair Maidens", because it is so practical. Every Christian should have a copy to use as a handbook for relationships." -- Jim Ryun, world-record runner, Olympian, and U.S. Congressman --Jim Ryun

This book not only gives you the reasons behind courtship, but also advice on how to develop a God-centered relationship, and how to prepare for marriage. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a practical guide for courtship in their life!

A Review of the book Of Knights and Fair Maidens by Jeff and Danielle Myers
Review by "Emily"

I have never encountered any Christian books on relationships that were as simple, practical and fun to read as Of Knights and Fair Maidens. The book is written in a candid question-and-answer format, and the book is a short read of less than 100 pages. Here are some of the book's highlights.

A hilarious beginning. The book draws you in right from the start, while subtly challenging you to examine your expectations about what you are looking for in becoming married some day, and also how the culture has affected what ends up more often occurring. The authors point out that today the attitude of romancing couples is more often than not "I love you so much I want to spend the rest of my week with you", rather than commitment to marriage. The authors encourage for readers to go in the opposite direction. One of the great aspects about this book is that the authors make clear that Of Knights and Fair Maidens is not about making it to the latest Christian bestseller lists by re-hashing the same relationship gumbo that has become popular. Relationship-geared titles sell well, but this book certainly is not a bestseller, and can even be hard to find copies of. Instead, it is about targeting those who want to truly counter the culture, and equipping them with the tools to do so, with a particular focus on Biblical principles versus legalistic methodology.

An inviting Interview. I really enjoyed the interview formatting of this book. The authors laid it out really well, and the questions of the "mystery interviewer" are sometimes humorous, and flow much like the conversation I imagine going on in my head.

Pulls no punches.

This is excellent guidance for any age who are dating. Suggests so many fun things one can do on a date I wish I had it when I was dating. Looking back, my dates were pretty boring. Couples can do so many fun and interesting things,none of which involve the back seat of cars.

I attended a two week session at Summit Ministries, the Ministry of which Dr. Myers is President of. I bought this book there and got him to sign it for me. I read most of it on the plane ride home, and just now finished it. Having been in a "courtship-like" relationship before, this really made sense to me. I realized where my old relationship had its mess-ups and how I should've gone about things from the beginning. Whether you buy into the whole "Courtship" thing or not, this book gives FANTASTIC advise about how Christians should go about their romantic relationships. Their story is fantastic and makes me hope that mine will be similar. As a male sophomore in college, I thoroughly enjoyed and gained a lot of wisdom from this book. I would recommend this to any Christian parents and young Christian students (Middle School and up). I would also recommend this to couples that are considering marriage, as this book gives great advise and ideas that one should think about prior to marriage!

This is an excellent resource for those interested in pursuing someone for marriage. It gives practical suggestions for activities to engage in to learn about the other person as well as activities to do with his/her family to get to know them. It outlines a mature way to pursue someone for a lifelong relationship.

The book is decent, has a lot of practical considerations, however it seemed to fit a very specific case with a somewhat narrow view of courtship. I felt that I was basically just reading a couples story of their courtship, which while it did give me A LOT of practical ideas didn't seem as intellectual/doctrinal a discussion of "courtship"

This is a great book. I wish every one of my piers would read and meditate on what they find in this book. My girlfriend and I are very serious and we both got this book, read it, and then started reading it toghether chapter by chapter and talking about it. We are both conservative christians but this book relayed much new and interesting information and helped us to talk about important things instead of just going "goo-goo-eyed and mushy." We through reading this book have built up each other's character a fair bit and I wish the best for anyone considering reading this book. Go with God and remember He is first. Who your spouse is, is one of the biggest questions you will ever answer. Listen to those who have made that decision and made it well so that you as well may make the right choice.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
