This collection is a "must-have" for anyone with an interest in homiletics. It includes three titles by John Albert Broadus, who has been called "The Prince of Expositors." In fact, his On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons is an enormously popular homiletics textbook, and has been in print for more than 100 years.
Broadus was a master of clarity in communication and sympathy with his audience. In these three books you will discover not only his instructions for effective preaching, but also the text of 21 sermons and addresses he delivered. His History of Preaching is a fascinating guided tour of preaching practices, trends, highlights, and low points, from Old Testament figures through his own contemporaries. This is a real gem!
If you preach, teach, or otherwise present the Gospel publicly...this collection is for you. The textbook alone carries a list price of $29 today, which makes the collection an excellent value!
[Broadus'] textbook...is the most widely used text on preaching ever published; more than a century later, it is still used in many colleges and seminaries.
