Sins Before Faith & Sins After Faith
The Believer's Standing in Grace and Under Responsibility
Second Printing, 1989
Robert Govett was a fellow of Worcester College, Oxford. He possessed brilliant intellectual gifts. The Teaching of Robert Govett has been preserved in a large number of expositions and tracts. Sins Before Faith & Sins After Faith is one such work.
"Govett's writings are extensive, of varying quality, and often marked by a high level of scholarship, a superbly logical approach, extraordinary originality, and complete faithfulness to biblical revelation. Much concerned with eschatology (Apocalypse, 1864, and other works), he held that much of the Book of Revelation is to be understood literally." R. E. D. Clark, The New International Dictionary of the Christian Church, J. D. Douglas, general editor, page 426.
