Publisher's Description

Being a Christian lawyer is possible, but not easy. Law professor Michael Schutt believes that although there are significant obstacles, Christians belong in the legal profession and should regard it as a sacred calling. The Christian God is, after all, a God concerned with justice, both divine and human. However, the pathway beginning with law school and leading to the daily demands of practice doesn't provide much guidance for pursuing law as a Christian calling. Schutt offers this book as a vital resource for reconceiving the theoretical foundations of law and gives practical guidance for maintaining integrity within a challenging profession. A hopeful and practical book for law students and those serving in the legal profession.

Editorial Reviews

A valuable book for Christian lawyers, students, ministers and their friends. . .Schutt's work is unique, well worth reading, and particularly useful for those considering law school and for small group study by Christian lawyers.
"This book is a valuable resource for lawyers and law students seeking to integrate their faith and professional calling at a deeper level. Michael Schutt has combined his experience as both a legal practitioner and a legal academic to expose the stumbling blocks that lead to secularization and spiritual apathy in the study and practice of law. His call for integrity through wholeness will pierce the heart of every Christian in the legal profession who is concerned about compartmentalizing work and faith."
This book would be a valuable gift for law students and lawyer friends.
There is much that I love about this book and which can be highly instructive for all men and women called to the legal profession. Each chapter ends with insightful study questions. The chapter on vocation is outstanding and would be helpful to anyone who seeks to follow Jesus in all realms of life. In addition, Mike offers a very helpful chapter on the unique voices of lawyers, especially as they relate to money, pride, and power. Throghout the book the practice of bibilical and systematic theology is modeled well, as it relates to both the scholarly underpinnings and practice of law. Excellent case studies on the lives of Daniel and Joshua further illustrates what it means to live faithfully amid the challenges of vocation. I strongly commend this book to you. If you are interested in lawy, working with pre-law or law school students or faculty, or have ministry partners in the legal profession, then this is a great resource.
"Many Christian law students and lawyers have never begun to explore what their faith means for their professional lives. One reason has been the lack of quality resources to help illuminate the path. With this book, Michael Schutt has helped fill the void by providing a resource that is theologically deep and practically relevant. Whether you're a beginning law student or a senior partner at a firm, this book is a must-read if you're serious about reflecting on what it means to be a Christian lawyer."
"Mike Schutt has written a very accessible account of what it should mean for a Christian to study and practice law. Neither law school nor the practice of law directly offers sincere Christians an open door to bring their faith into their profession. But Mike shows why Christian integrity demands more than getting good grades and billing lots of hours. He demonstrates why and how bringing our confession of Christ's lordship into the law is vitally important."

    Mike Schutt pulls no punches in this provocative and inspiring challenge to those of us lawyers who claim to be followers of Christ. While under girded by faithful optimism, this isn't some shallow feel-good book offering easy answers. To the contrary, Schutt calls Christian attorneys to a comprehensive and thoroughly transformative model of redemptive legal thinking. If you, like me, are a lawyer honestly seeking to serve and honor Jesus in and through your legal vocation, then you need to open this book, the sooner the better. You will be blessed in your ongoing struggle to genuinely integrate your faith and your career. While I might consider my own book ("The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues") to be a "must read" for ordinary Christians facing common legal issues, "Redeeming Law" is absolutely a "must read" for all Christian lawyers!
