Shaffer called the lecture "an exploration of ethical possibilities for lawyers in the biblical categories of prophet, consoler and neighbor." He continued: "All of these, and particularly the first, are suggested by [UGA Caldwell] Professor Milner Ball's recent book, Called by Stories: the prophet - particularly the prototype of the prophet in Judaism, Moses; the second by the prophet Rachel; and the third by the dominant biblical ethic, in both Judaism and Christianity, love of neighbor."
