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.
