Description

This book offers a much-needed primer on legal issues affecting religious institutions today. It is an excellent resource, with comprehensive, practical guidance on relevant topics, including decision making, risk prevention, negligence, employment law, human rights, property issues, and confidentiality. The focus throughout is on good governance and prudent oversight; while religious organizations are advised to seek legal advice on complex matters, the clear message is that many potential pitfalls can be avoided through care and common sense. The writing is clear and crisp, actual cases are used to illustrate legal principles, and each chapter closes with questions and answers that highlight the key points. This hook is neither overly detailed nor overly simplistic. It does an excellent job of hitting the right note for its intended audience. The Legal Guide for Religious Institutions would be a valuable addition to the library of every religious institution in America.
