Product Description

How can lawyers bridge the gap between their beliefs and their daily work? Joseph Allegretti maintains that law can be a true vocation - a "calling" from God. He points to ways that lawyers are or can be healers in society and he explains how their service to clients resembles a covenant relationship. Lawyers and law students will find his vision of the legal profession to be rich with possibility.

    Stephen L. Bloom, Esq.
    Allegretti's classic work presents an inspiring and intellectually solid alternative career paradigm for Christians who find themselves practicing law (or lawyers who find themselves seeking to practice Christianity). He faces the tough questions head on: Is it really possible for a faithful Christian to be an effective lawyer? Must Christian lawyers overlook their own moral values and practice law in the same way as everyone else? Is the culturally dominant "lawyer as hired gun" mindset really the only legitimate approach? Readers will be challenged in their assumptions about what it means to be a lawyer, and encouraged in their efforts to integrate faith and legal practice. As an actively practicing Christian attorney and author ("The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues", Living Ink, 2008) myself, I found The Lawyer's Calling to be a serious, inspiring and thought-provoking book.
