Reviews in Religion and Theology

“. . . Archbishop Williams, who has contributed an appreciative forward, is but the first of many who will welcome Norman Doe’s Law of the Church in Wales.” –Reviews in Religion and Theology

Law and Justice

“What we do have here is however an impressive range of information, clearly presented and argued with conviction. There can be no doubt about Professor Doe’s prodigious learning in this field nor of his enthusiasm for the subject. . . In the foreword Dr. Rowan Williams concludes: "this is an excellent and most welcome book." High praise indeed – and praise that is well deserved . . .” –Law and Justice

Ecclesiastical Law Journal

“. . . this book should be warmly welcomed as an addition to ecclesiastical and canon law libraries in England and further afield, both as a general comparative study and for its treatment of the legal issues raised by the distinctive history of the Church in Wales. It will be an indispensable volume for lawyers working in Wales and for others with a serious role or interest in church administration there.” –Ecclesiastical Law Journal
