Every religious community in the US has reason to be concerned about its legal liability. This book provides a legal context for understanding and responding to relevant legal issues, while at the same time providing answers and directions on specific legal questions. The US is the most litigious country in the world. The sex abuse scandal has virtually bankrupted the American Roman Catholic Church. The breakup of the American Episcopal Church threatens innumerable lawsuits over ownership of church property. Every religious community in the US has reason to be concerned about its legal liability. In the course of their research, the two authors (one of whom is American and a graduate of Harvard Law School) found that Canadian and US law are pretty similar when it comes to law governing religious communities. This book provides a legal context for understanding and responding to relevant legal issues, while at the same time providing answers and directions on specific legal questions.
