Simple Language for Simple Truth: The Legacy of J. A. Broadus

Broadus

In the information age, it’s not often that we lose track of history’s most influential people. Archives, blogs, databases, and books direct us to those worth learning from. But sometimes powerful voices get lost in the noise. If you don’t already know about him, J. A. Broadus is one of those influential voices.

“It has been my fortune to hear Beecher and Phillips Brooks, Maclaren, Joseph Parker and Spurgeon, John Hall and Moody, John Clifford and David Lloyd George. At his best and in a congenial atmosphere Broadus was the equal of any man I have ever heard.”
A. T. Robertson, former professor, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

During his lifetime, John Albert Broadus was renowned for his passionate, persuasive preaching. To Broadus, every sermon had a purpose. He crafted every word to lead the listener to the plain truths of Scripture. He fervently studied the art of preaching, and took it upon himself to understand the techniques of persuasive public speaking. The result was a beautifully simple style, thanks to which his sermons and writings remain accessible today.
