Pierre Viret: A Forgotten Giant of the Reformation
Softcover, 98 pages
This book bears with it a grand subject: the historical and literary resurrection of one of the major figures of the Reformation, the long-forgotten Reformer of French-speaking Switzerland, Pierre Viret (1511–1571). A prolific author, his abilities in the fields of ethics, apologetics, and symbolic and pastoral theology put him in lithe company with the great Reformers. His massive Christian Instruction in the Doctrine of the Law and the Gospel contains the finest exposition of the Ten Commandments brought out by the Reformation. His apologetics, based on the authority of God's Word on every aspect of creation and the certitude that the meaning of all reality was given by God and revealed in His written and incarnate Word, lead his writings to have an incomparable freshness and present applicability.
Indeed, as this book briefly shows, Viret's careful application of God's Law to the economic realities of his day sheds light even on the financial issues of our troubled times.
