I am a student of Theology and I have to study Canon Law. I found this book very helpful for my studies as it explains the Canons very simply and profoundly.

Overall I find this a good commentary... 9 Dec. 2004
By Pete Vere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading the debate taking place between the other reviewers, I thought I would share my own feelings as a canon lawyer. Coincidentally, I happen to be friends with some of the reviewers on each side. This sorta summarizes how I feel about this commentary.

Overall, I find it quite useful. Its biggest strength, in my opinion, is the commentary on General Norms, which is the first book of the Code. (For non-canonists, the Code of Canon Law is divided into seven books -- aka major divisions) General Norms are the basic canonical principles that define key terms and determine how the law should be applied. While many find it the most boring book in the Code, it is nevertheless the most important. Thus it is essential to any any good commentary on the Code that its commentary on General Norms be solid. The commentary in this book is stellar and I consult it regularly.

Nevertheless, as others have noted, there are certain parts in this commentary, mainly in the book covering the Sacraments, that I would either question or disagree with. I would not say that any of the commentary is erroneous, but it does push the envelope on occasion.

But overall, it's a good resource and the commentary on General Norms, which is very readable without compromising depth, alone is worth the price.

Incredible resource 30 Sept. 2008
By Michael R. Mateyk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wow. What a great commentary. There is so much here that I have an even stronger appreciation for canon law than I did before. I am studying to be a priest and this book is really proving to be invaluable. And this is proving to be an invaluable help. There is history of the code, comparisons with the 1917 code and the code of the Eastern church. Really indepth and almost too much...almost.

This is an excellent book to explain the Code of Canon Law and we will get much use from it.
It is a big, heavy book with much commentary.

A Freshly Revished Text with a New, Lucid Commentary on Canon Law 19 Sept. 2008
By Johannes Platonicus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The New Commentary on the Code of Canon Law, issued by Paulist Press (2000), is the standard edition found universities and seminaries; and it is the best one you will find in the English language. This edition offers a new and lucid running commentary, with a freshly revised and updated text. Thus this volume is reflective of the changes that have occurred in the Roman Church (and in the Eastern Church also) since the edition set-forth in 1983. Preceding the text and commentary is helpful introductory material, one discussing the nature of Canon Law and Theology, another presenting an overview of the Canons from 1983-1999 and the last furnishes a brief compendium on the Canons of the Eastern Churches. Additionally, there are comprehensive introductions to each of the books and titles of the Canons, which elucidate the essential contents therein. It should also be mentioned that, along with the commentary, are copius annotations that add further insight and direct readers to further pertinent sources of reference. This edition is a definite recommendation for students and scholars of Canon Law, for priests and laymen, for parish libraries and for the home-libarary.

Very helpful product 13 Jan. 2013
By Gregory 00 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Code of Canon law is not a book for everyone, but most 'engaged' Catholics would be able to understand the Code, this is the better of the Canon Law books, because of the great commentary.
