"Ecclesiastical Law ... has become the obvious book to consult, for its admirable selection of material and its clear, if occasionally provocative, commentary. It is a pleasure to welcome a second edition, re-ordered and refurbished but in ways which enhance rather than detract from the original design. ... attractive and easy to use ... All credit to Mark Hill and OUP for producing this splendid and wholly modern account of a living branch of English law."
