What is coveting? How can we distinguish between coveting and desire? What is the true root of wicked desire? And what is the hidden blessing which the Law brings us through this commandment?
Seen as one of the most difficult commandments to understand, Thou Shalt Not Covet takes an in-depth look at the tenth commandment and its transgression, an often forgotten and generally unacknowledged sin. With astonishing clarity and applicability, Pierre Viret and John Calvin plumb the depths of this hidden sin and reveal the startling nature and diabolical foundation of coveting, and bring to light the oft-overlooked blessings brought to mankind by the giving of this commandment.
