Item Description...
This volume offers a comprehensive and consistently theological interpretation of Canon Law such as has scarcely been attempted by any of the other manuals in use. It is inspired by the key conciliar notion of communio ecclesiarum, implying a structural and human reality in which is embodied a theological dimension, namely, the grace conceded by means of word and sacrament and guaranteed by apostolic succession, for which Canon Law is founded, not only anthropologically and sociologically, but also theologically. The whole of Canon Law, in this perspective, conforms to and clarifies the original elements of the church: word, sacrament, apostolic succession, and charism. It also agrees with Hans Urs von Balthasar's notion that Canon Law has the function of guaranteeing that the church as communio is and continues to be a community in love: in that love whose origin is Jesus Christ and which is given to humanity by the Holy Spirit.>

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A potentially interesting book ruined by a poor translation.  Jul 22, 2002
This book is a theologically oriented study of some issues in current Roman Canon Law. It is an English translation of Gerosa's German edition. Unfortunately, both the translation and the copy editing leave a great deal to be desired. German grammar and word order are frequently apparent, over- complicating sentences that are already long and involved. Split infinitives abound, and there is frequent confusion between different parts of speech. Some non-existent words are used, and there are one or two consistent spelling mistakes. The following two sentences provide eloquent illustrations of these problems:

From page 77: "And thus it is possible only within a juridical system in which the criterion that renders a norm binding that it is not so much the will of the legislator or an exclusively formal value, so much as that of the certainty of law in the state juridical systems, but rather it is the unity or communion which is the essential content of the ecclesial experience itself."

From page 158: "These being the essential elements of the normative of the Code relative to the remission of a canonical sanction it is not difficult to intuit the wholly particular nature of the same and above all of excommunication, for ever the sanction-type of the Church."

The text of this book reads like a first draft rather than a final translation, and in my opinion it is nowhere near ready for publication. I think it needs a complete redraft. This is unfortunate, because Gerosa has several interesting things to say. It's just a shame that so much of his argument is obscured by the translation.
