Pastor, Church & Law
Legal Issues for PastorsVolume 1
Understand the laws affecting pastors and why they are important for church boards and ministers to know. Richard Hammar uses court cases to help define and explain the legal distinction of ministerial status and its implications for pastors and church boards. This volume addresses clergy employment contracts, compensation, termination, legal privileges and conditions of ministers, and the legal authority of ministers on behalf of the church. Also, the more common theories of clergy legal liability are reviewed.
