Jesus functioned as a lawyer, advocate and judge is the premise that begins this book. The author goes on to say that the ultimate purpose of the law or the Torah is to lead humans to both love God and neighbor. These statements are backed up by Scripture and shows how the lawyers of Jesus's day lost sight of the real purpose of the law. Jesus acted as a legal reformer to show that God is a God of justice and mercy who loves His world.
The book uses examples from the present day which illustrates this point. There are resources listed for pastors as well as a list of Christian legal organizations which help people in their area of need.
I received this book from Moody Publishers for this honest review.
