Case Studies in Tyranny, Insurrection & Obedience to God
by Pierre Viret
This book is written to help Christians discern when to disobey and when to comply with tyrannical government orders. When civil governments become tyrants, Christians are forced to make decisions.
Pierre Viret is a helpful voice for times like these. He was no stranger to these tensions. He spent his life as a pastor under the pressure of both Protestant and Roman Catholic civil governments. These governments were hostile to the churches which exalted the authority of Christ over the church. In these pages, you will find well reasoned, biblically ordered counsel for those who are forced to make decisions for when to disobey.
