 Our Description

By Pete Vere and Michael Trueman

Canon law—could it possibly have any relevance to your life? More than you might think. This legal system that governs the day-to-day workings of the Roman Catholic Church deals with matters that touch the life of every Catholic.

The authors follow up their successful first book—Surprised by Canon Law: 150 Questions Catholics Ask About Canon Law—with answers to even more questions. Topics include:

  • Can someone be denied a Church funeral?
  • Under what circumstance might a priest be removed from his role?
  • How do parishes merge and what happens to their property?
  • What is excommunication? How is it applied?
  • What is the procedure for the election of a pope?
  • What is the process for declaring someone a saint?
Surprised by Canon Law, Volume 2 is a clear and lively guide to laws that undergird the life of the Church.

This item received 3 stars overall. Canon Law Made Easy(ier)

What is excommunication?  Who is eligible to become a saint?  To what Vatican Office would I write if I have a complaint about the Church? Who owns Church property?  Can someone be denied a church funeral? 

Since the Catholic church is one body, it has to have rules to answer these questions and more.  Those rules, which deal with the nitty-gritty of people's rights and obligations and the relationships between them and the Church (as opposed to the somewhat more vague and idealistic standards of Scripture) are written down as the Code of Canon Law.  Surprised by Canon Law, Vol. 2 lists 100 questions which are answered by Canon Law and then answers them with citations to canon law.  After an introduction, the book is divided into 13 chapters including Parish Life, Offices of the Roman Curia, Cannonization of Saints and more.  Th Full Review...
