I'm stuck in a legal quandary. I have no idea where to turn. Do I need to see a lawyer?
The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues isn't written for legal scholars or ivory tower intellectuals, but for average Christians currently interacting in some way with the legal system (whether by choice or unavoidable circumstance).
It promotes a system of Christian legal ethics that restores relationships, values integrity, and promotes peace. It confronts an out-of-control secular legal system that destroys relationships, idolizes greed, and celebrates revenge. This book is a comforting companion and helpful counselor for the Christian who is bewildered, overwhelmed, and increasingly uneasy with "all this legal stuff", and how it fits in with his or her Christian morals and beliefs.
Both comprehensive in scope and friendly in tone, the legal topics addressed have been selected to cover situations average people encounter in the course of everyday life. Hot topics are examined, such as living wills, living trust, medical assistance planing, bankruptcy, divorce, estate planning, criminal defense, taxes, and real estate matters. Every chapter includes two life lessons of individual facing these critical issues.
readers will be enlightened, encouraged in their faith, and empowered in their ability to make sound decisions to honor that faith, even in the high-stakes, pressure-filled, secular legal arena.
"The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues is a page turner-easy to read and yet powerful in applying Scripture to real life situations."
