A handy reference for various topics covered by the Code of Canon law as well as Indian Civil law! The first six topics of this book are more ecclesiastical in nature and the remaining four speak about the life of the faithful in the secular world. While the secular governments around the world impose more and more rules and regulations in administering temporal goods and they are more oriented towards the uniform civil codes in countries like India which is pluralistic in nature, the Catholic Church is constantly facing problems pertaining to clergy sex abuse. It also renews its strategy towards the poor and its mission towards them. This book throws some light on complicated situations and guides the reader in tackling the same.
