Description
There is an acute lack of knowledge in terms of relations between Church and civil society, between Church law and civil law much else that the Catholics tend to take for granted, making life difficult for ourselves. This book fills the lacuna admirably by breaking down the barriers of ignorance specifically by way of giving the reader a fair understanding of the intricacies of both Church-State or Civic-Religious links and difference that are part of the life of a Christian in India. It analyses almost all the civil cases of the Church decided in the civil courts of India. The understanding this book offers in a nutshell is meant to be a handy guide to clergy and laity alike especially to the advocates of both the sides, in discerning the rightness and the wrongness of legalistic matter concerning so many aspects of the Church, the society and of our life, as dutiful believers and conscientious citizens of India.
