Ministry and the Law, written as a resource for all ministers who serve primarily within the Catholic tradition, offers helpful and practical insights regarding the relationship of civil law to ministry. The author provides relevant case law to underscore certain issues and offers helpful suggestions and checklists to aid ministers in providing protection to themselves, the churches and the church-sponsored programs with which they are affiliated. A glossary of terms as well as a pertinent bibliography add to the usefulness and accessibility of this resource.
