Chivalry: The Quest for a Personal Code of Honor in an Unjust World (Paperback)
By Zach Hunter
RELEASE DATE JUNE 2013
A generation is rising up to care for the hurting and oppressed. Committed to changing the world, they are passionate about justice and willing to fight for it. But what would that same justice look like if we lived it in our private lives – close to home, with our family and friends?
In "Chivalry," Zach Hunter dares young men and women to view their lives as a quest, challenging them to develop their own personal code that will prepare them to defend others and live with civility and integrity.
Hunter reframes chivalry in a modern context. He looks at everyday life as a grand adventure and shares ancient wisdom from the Bible, insightful stories and practical examples to help you develop your own code of honor – and live a life of significance.
About the Author
Zach Hunter is a college student who is helping lead a new generation of activists to put their faith into action to address some of the most serious problems facing the world today.
In his debut book, "Be the Change" (2007), Hunter profiles people who are investing in the world to make a difference. His second book, "Generation Change" (2008), gives practical steps for students to take action and find solutions to real-world problems. In "Lose Your Cool" (2009), he challenges his peers to shed conventional ideas of what is cool and instead stoke a passion for what really matters. He has also written for Boundless, an online magazine for college students and 20-somethings, and Catalyst Groupzine. He has partnered with artists in the Christian community to help raise awareness about human rights violations and the plight of the poor. Recently he spoke in Australia, Switzerland, Norway, Germany and Canada, inspiring youth to make a difference. He also appeared at White House events and was honored by CNN as a modern-day hero.
While in seventh grade, he launched the "Loose Change to Loosen Chains" campaign, through which his school and youth group raised awareness and funds to help end modern-day slavery – a problem facing 27 million people worldwide. Today students around the globe are participating in that campaign to benefit organizations involved in the abolition of slavery.
Currently a university student in Colorado, Hunter spends his free time speaking to hundreds of thousands of people about God's heart for the hurting and oppressed, sharing his dream that his generation would discover God's great love for them and be motivated to care for their neighbors around the world. He also appears regularly on TV and radio and contributes to magazine and newspaper articles.
Hunter contributed to the "Just Start" DVD curriculum, also featuring Chuck Colson, Desmond Tutu, Kay Warren, Joni Eareckson Tada and others. He served as global student spokesman for "The Amazing Change," a social justice campaign launched by Bristol Bay Productions in conjunction with the 2007 major motion picture "Amazing Grace," based on the life of anti-slavery pioneer William Wilberforce. He has been featured in Pulitzer Prize-winning author Nicholas Kristof's book "Half the Sky," in "Do Hard Things" by Alex and Brett Harris and in the January 2008 edition of Biography Today, a magazine series about people that students should know in the world today. A children's book has been written about him as part of the "Young Heroes" series published by Cengage Learning. Hunter also contributed to "You Were Made to Make a Difference" by Max Lucado and was featured in "Wrecked" by Jeff Goins and "Dating Delilah" by Judah Smith.
