Mike Schutt, one of my colleagues at Worldview Academy, has written a fascinating new book called Redeeming Law: Christian Law and the Legal Profession. Not only is Mike a lawyer, he's also a professor of law at Regent University. Although we teach on different teams, we hit it off right away our first summer at Baylor -- too understand that, all you need to know is that Mike's lectures include more references to cannibalism than mine (which is saying something). When he isn't fascinating audiences with an account of the protein-rich diets of stranded mariners, though, Mike thinks deeply about what the law means for a Christian. At Justitia, his heady new blog, he has posted a "framework" for thinking about the law from a biblical perspective.
Obviously if you're a Christian lawyer, or a believer who's considering the legal profession, you'll want to read what Mike has to say. But even if you're not, it's instructive to see how, beginning with biblical data, we can build a context for pursuing a vocation in the twenty-first century.
