    not fo faith

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-It was done by a man not of faith.
    2-It was done by a man who was not of faith.

    3-Those words were spoken by a man who was of faith.


    They look strange to me. I think '1' would work if it was followed by something like: 'but of reason'.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: not fo faith

    Both 1 and 2 work perfectly with your suffix.

    Re: not fo faith

    How about without faith instead?
