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 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 law, working with pre-law or law school students or faculty, or have ministry partners in the legal profession, then this is a great resource.
