Product Description

At its heart, this book is a comforting companion and helpful counselor for average Christians interacting with the law, perhaps feeling bewildered, overwhelmed, or uneasy about how their legal situations align with their Christian morals and beliefs. The book is comprehensive in scope, but written in a friendly, conversational tone. The legal topics addressed are carefully selected to cover those most likely to be encountered by regular folks in the course of their everyday lives. By presenting a practical Christian perspective informed by God's rich array of relevant scriptural wisdom, this book will release multitudes of Christian believers from the tangled web of moral confusion and ethical compromise so often promoted and exacerbated by lawyers and the legal establishment. Readers will be enlightened, encouraged in their faith, and empowered in their ability to make sound decisions to honor that faith, even in the high-stakes, pressure-filled secular legal arena.

Publisher's Description

I'm stuck in a legal quandary. I have no idea where to turn. Do I need to see a lawyer?

The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues   isn't written for legal scholars or ivory tower intellectuals, but for average Christians currently interacting in some way with the legal system (whether by choice or unavoidable circumstance).

It promotes a system of Christian legal ethics that restores relationships, values integrity, and promotes peace. It confronts an out-of-control secular legal system that destroys relationships, idolizes greed, and celebrates revenge. This book is a comforting companion and helpful counselor for the Christian who is bewildered, overwhelmed, and increasingly uneasy with "all this legal stuff", and how it fits in with his or her Christian morals and beliefs.

Both comprehensive in scope and friendly in tone, the legal topics addressed have been selected to cover situations average people encounter in the course of everyday life. Hot topics are examined, such as living wills, living trust, medical assistance planing, bankruptcy, divorce, estate planning, criminal defense, taxes, and real estate matters. Every chapter includes two life lessons of individual facing these critical issues.

readers will be enlightened, encouraged in their faith, and empowered in their ability to make sound decisions to honor that faith, even in the high-stakes, pressure-filled, secular legal arena.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Stephen L. Bloom, Esquire
Located in: Carlisle, PA
Submitted: December 26, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a Christian Lawyer (yes, I know some folks consider that combination impossible, but by God's grace I've worked diligently to integrate my faith with my legal profession). I've been in private practice for 20 years. I also teach as an Adjunct Professor at Messiah College. I'm a Certified Lay Speaker in my church and I serve as a Consultant to the United Methodist Stewardship Foundation of Central Pennsylvania. I became a born again believer in Jesus Christ as a young adult. I'm married with three kids. I love getting out to churches, academic institutions and other venues to talk about my hopeful vision for Christianity and the law.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to share a healing, hopeful and practical Christian understanding of the most common legal issues facing ordinary Christian believers.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  To realize that they don't have to be taken in by the typical destructive secular legal mindset of greed, retribution and revenge. To realize that they can take hold, instead, of something much better, something that will honor Christ. To realize that common legal situations can be the place for a powerful witness of restoration, reconciliation and forgiveness, in the name of Jesus.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It helped me go deeper into the Bible and better understand God's perspective on the law. And it's already provided me with amazing opportunities to share my faith and meet so many encouraging new friends in Christ.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The late Larry Burkett was probably my greatest inspiration as a Christian author/teacher. His teachings on stewardship have been such a blessing for me and my family. There are so many others it would be hard to list them all - Chuck Colson, Coach Mac (Bill McCartney, the founder of Promise Keepers), Bill Hybels (especially through his Leadership Summits) are a few. And, of course, John Wesley is huge influence on my life and faith. And I love many contemporary Christian recording artists - some who've really inspired me over the years would be DC Talk, the late Rich Mullens, Third Day, Audio Adrenaline, the Newsboys, Michael W. Smith, Paul Baloche, Kim Hill, Rita Springer, and Saline - but really that's only scratching the surface, there are so many I've been blessed by.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  God wants you to be a witness for Him in every situation. Even when you are drawn into legal matters.
