Author Bio

John Albert Broadus (1827–1895) was one of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary's founding faculty members. After being ordained in 1850, he pastored a Baptist church in Virginia. In 1859, he became professor of homiletics at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he later served as the president.

Broadus, one of the foremost late-nineteenth-century American pastors, is considered a master of clear, heartfelt communication. Broadus has authored many titles, including A Treatise on the Preparation and Delivery of SermonsLectures on the History of Preaching, and a Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew in the Classic Commentaries and Studies on Matthew collection.
