Description

A Concise Guide to Your Rights in the Catholic Church decodes complex Roman Catholic Church law and doctrine into a practical, sound reference book. It familiarizes Catholics with the rights and obligations written into Church law for all its members while outlining the procedures in place for vindicating these rights. It is the third book in The Concise Guide Series, a series of books tackling questions of central importance for contemporary Catholicism. Glossaries, diagrams, and up-to-date bibliographies are all regular features of these pastorally sensitive and doctrinally sound resources.

"Excellent."

"An excellent interplay of Church teaching, canon law, and pastoral practice on the rights and obligations of the Christian faithful."
