Churches, Clergy and the Law
For Australia, this book is a first. It provides an account of how the Australian legal system interacts with the church - making the legal material accessible and comprehensible to the lay reader. A whole host of questions demonstrated the need for one easy-to-read volume in this area. What happens if children are injured at Sunday school? What is the legal position regarding a church that is regarded by neighbours as a nuisance, or interference with church worship? And what about the employment status of ministers and pastors and the supposed privilege they have regarding confidences? All clergy, church administrators at all levels and their legal advisers will find clear and straightforward discussion of their everyday problems.
