Review:

I had reached a point several years ago, where I felt I had “outgrown” historical novels. I was a particular fan of the Renaissance Period, yet even these could not hold my attention. Until For Honor.

Early on there were some details of the book that lead me to believe it was not Christian based: actions by the characters, but particularly the language. Still, I kept reading. I became so wrapped up in the story that I was able to overlook these details. My reward was a wonderful reading experience and a renewed love for this time period.

Although this is a wonderful book for the secular market, I found it’s biblical depth lacking. The language in particular is offensive to a Christian reader, which makes it questionable for the Christian market. That said, the secular market is richer for this book being on the shelves, it is still a “cleaner” novel than is generally found these days. -- Tammy Hornbeck, Christian Book Previews.com
