Robin WestThe law practices Ball describes open the possibility of finding spiritual satisfaction in legal work for ‘sleeping well at night’ as one judge puts it, for resolving what Tikkun recently called ‘the crisis of meaning’ in our contemporary lives, for discovering the joy that comes from losing oneself in the service of something greater. . . . Ball employs not only theologlical argument, but also literary interpretation, journalistic reporting, a good deal of personal narrative, and simply moral reflection to engage the reader directly. . . These meditations tell the story of one man’s intellectual attempt to make moral and religious sense of his own life, and the lives of some people he admires, in law. It is a story, and an intellectual journey, that is well conceived and well told.
