Who are Some Famous Christian Lawyers?
Since the early days in the Christian church, Christian lawyers have played a significant role in the progress and growth of the church. Christian lawyers have often used their legal skills and training to further the cause of Christianity and uphold its tenets.
Outside of the religious or church community, Christian lawyers have accomplished significant advances for the greater good of the Christian church and society. Today, Christian attorneys continue to represent individuals and organizations to promote ideals including justice, equality, and freedom.
Prominent historical Christian attorneys include:
- Zenas the Lawyer;
- Lewis Wallace;
- William Jennings Bryan; and
- Michael McConnell.
Zenas the Lawyer is a lawyer who is mentioned in the Bible. The Apostle Paul believed it was significant to include his profession when listing Zenas in the book of Titus, chapter 3, verse 13.
In this particular passage, Paul instructs the early church members to do everything they can to assist Zenas the lawyer and his companion Apollos and to ensure they have everything they need. This short passage conveys that attorneys played a significant role in the early founding of the Christian church as well as to serve as encouragement for the believers of today to continue supporting the legal profession.
Tertullian was born in 160 A.D. He was one of the most prolific Christian writers during the days of the early Christian church.
Tertullian is known for being an example of a Christian apologist who defended the Christian church against the various other ideologies that were in circulation at the time. He is known as the Father of Latin Christianity and the founder of Western theology. He was thought to be a lawyer specializing in Roman law due to his writing style and legal analogies.
Lewis Wallace was born in 1827. Known as “Lew,” he was an American attorney and author of Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which was later adapted to film. He used his legal training outside of lawyering to examine the historical legitimacy of Christian doctrines including the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Wallace approached the resurrection as though it was a legal cause. He used various forms of evidence and deduction to analyze the historical truth of the event. Because of his writings, other individuals have used their legal training to conduct similar research of Christian doctrines, including Harvard law professor Simon Greenleaf and British lawyer Frank Morison.
William Jennings Bryan was born in 1860. He was an American attorney and the 41st United States Secretary of State. He was the notable lawyer in the famous Scopes trial.
The Scopes trial addressed religion in public schools and the teaching of Darwinism and evolution. As an avid prohibitionist, Bryan was regarded as one of the most dynamic orators of his era as well as an advocate for the rights of the common people.
Michael McConnell was born in 1955. He is a lawyer, legal scholar, and formal federal judge in the United States District Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.
As a lawyer and a judge, McConnell is noted for his advocacy involving the rights of Christian groups, especially the rights of religious organizations to exclude applicants and the Constitutional right to association. He was involved in notable cases including Boy Scouts of America v. Dale (200) and Christian Legal Society v. Martinez (2010).
