Reviews - What do customers think about The Lawyer's Calling: Christian Faith and Legal Practice?

Breaking Free from the "Lawyer as Hired Gun" Mindset  Feb 15, 2008
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), I found The Lawyer's Calling to be a serious, inspiring and thought-provoking book.
A book for all seaons...  Dec 13, 2006
The Lawyer's Calling is a thoughtful meditation on the intersection--and the tension--between Christian faith and professional practice. It has value beyond the legal profession--any professional will recognize the tensions Allegretti explores in this brief, readable volume. If you struggle with the connection--or lack of connection--between what you do on Sunday and what you do the rest of the week, this little book will help you. Allegretti is a conversational and very readable writer. Highly recommended.
Good practical analysis  Mar 2, 2001
The author offers a succinct, practical and easily understood analysis of how one can be a Christian, ethical lawyer. It is a great resource for Christian law students who may be challenged as to whether to pursue a career in the law.
