Henry Roborough (d. 1650)A Member of the Westminster Assembly
Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.

Biography of Henry Roborough:
Henry Roborough (d. 1650) was Pastor Of Leonard’s, Eastcheap, London, And Scribe Of The Assembly Of Divines At Westminster.
He was chosen one of the Scribes to the Assembly of Divines at Westminster, and, about the same time, appointed Pastor of Leonard’s, Eastcheap, London, which he held until his death. He was one of the Committee of Divines who were appointed (Wood’s Athente Oxon. vol. ii. Brook’s Puritans, vol. iii.) to examine and ordain candidates for the holy ministry, by imposition of hands, in the year 1644. And he united with his brethren, the London ministers, in their declaration against the death of the King.—The profits of printing the Directory being given to him and Mr Byfield, the other Scribe of the Assembly, they are said to have sold the copy right for several hundred pounds. Mr Roborough died in the year 1650, and was succeeded in his living by Mr Matthew Barker, one of the silenced Non conformists, in 1662.
I have only seen of Mr Henry Roborough’s Writings, “The Doctrine of Justification Cleared and Vindicated from Arminian, Socinian, and Popish, Errors. Or, an Answer to Mr John Goodwin’s Animadversions upon Mr George Walker’s Defence of the true sense of Rom. iv. 3, 5. Together with an Examination of the said Mr John Goodwin’s Treatise of Justification.—Wherein the Imputation of Faith in a proper sense is denied and confuted: and the Imputation of Christ’s Righteousness is affirmed and proved.” 4to.
