Review from previous edition Hill's second edition takes its place fittingly and with an assured future in the long and distinguished line of legal literature relating to what might be broadly termed English canon law. It also marks and sustains a changing understanding of ecclesiastical law. (Studia Canonica)
The book can be recommended without reservation as a standard and reliable text on the ecclesiastical law of the Church of England, essential to practitioners, academics and students. All the chapters are consistently good, although Hill's well-known mastery of case law makes the chapter on faculty jurisdiction especially compelling to read (Studia Canonica)
Hill's Ecclesiastical Law has moved rapidly from being a pioneering work on a neglected subject to becoming a standard textbook ... the author is ideally suited to the task of expounding the ecclesiastical law of the Church of England. (Studia Canonica)
For anyone wanting to know the law of the Church of England, Mark Hill's book is an invaluable resource. It is both succinct and clear, sources are indicated and the "materials" at the end illustrate the manner in which the law is applied and precedent established (Newsletter of The Canon Law Society of Great Britain and Ireland)
The commentaries are not only detailed and scholarly; they also make stimulating reading ... This reviewer gladly recommends the volume to those in the Church of England, and beyond. The publishers are also to be congratulated. It is an attractive book, well laid out, printed, and indexed. It deserves a wide readership.' (The Expository Times)
Hill's exposition is concise, close to the authorities cited and extremely well-informed. He does, however, also indicate from time to time areas of debate and dispute without distorting his objective exposition of the law as it is.' (Studia Canonica)
...extremely readable narrative of the Law of the Church of England. For anyone wanting to know the law of the Church of England, Mark Hill's book is an invaluable resource. both succinct and clear (Rachel Harrington, SND)
...an extremely impressive work...This is a fine reference work, clearly the authoritative work on its subject, written in a very readable fashion. (Church Review)
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. (Ecclesiastical Law Journal)
Ecclesiastical law may indeed be complicated and obscure, but armed with this book practitioners need have no fears of it. (Philip Petchey)
It would have seemed an impossible dream only a few years ago. No one would produce, let alone publish, a one volume vade mecum of ecclesiastical law, comprehensive and up to date, containing the essential legislation, a useful selection of cases, and a lucid commentary. But here it is ...an immensely useful book. (Chancellor Professor David McClean QC)
