Excellent! A paradigm for lawyers of all faiths (not just Christians) who are serious about their faith and its obligations to place their lawyering into proper context. Although some of Allegretti's suggestions may not be realistic in practice, many if not most are and more importantly, we as lawyers have to make them so. A cri de couer, exhortation and pathway out all in one short volume.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

'A Lawyer's Calling' is a superb expose relating the practice of law with Christian theology. It is both strikingly practical, but also thoughtfully theological. The author is both a law professor and a divinity school graduate. He draws on theological references from many Christian traditions creating a very ecumenical review. But most importantly Alegretti touches the heart of lawyering. He obviously has been in the trenches and provides an uplifting and transforming vision of our profession. This is a must read for every lawyer who professes to be a Christian and who is attempting to live out his/her Christianity in her/his practice of law. Enjoy!Was this review helpful?
