What do the Scriptures say about welfare? Is Communism Biblical? Are there moral standards that should govern the legal profession? What is sound money, and does it really matter?

What is stealing, and how many forms can it take? Within Thou Shalt Not Steal, Pierre Viret answers these and other questions concerning the meaning and abiding applicability of the eighth commandment. Topics such as theft, usury, unjust loans, lawsuits, embezzlement of church funds, beggary, and more are addressed in this insightful commentary.

Though written in the 1500's, the topics covered in Viret's work are as applicable to the church today as they were the day they were written.
