One of the chief purposes of the Lawn Gospel blog is to encourage Christian law students and practicing attorneys to cling to the Cross and pursue law in a manner that glorifies the King. One of the most helpful introductions that I’ve found to this vision of the legal profession as founded upon gospel principles is Michael Schutt’s, “Redeeming Law“. In it, Schutt gives a great survey of law in the broader context of Christian faithfulness and Christ-centered living, citing everyone from Blackstone to Martin Luther. Because Christ rules all of creation, every aspect of law can — and should be — practiced in consistency with the truths of Scripture and the ethics of the Christian witness. Schutt does a great job of tying in the theological underpinnings of the historic Christian understanding of vocation with the contemporary struggle of being a “Christian lawyer.” It was a pivotal encouragement for me in discerning what and where the Lord was calling me in terms of legal work. And it can be yours for free!
