- Broadus is called by many as the father of American expository preaching
First published in 1886, Broadus' Sermons and Addresses provides a nice collection of his famous preaching which has been studied for over a century by many different denominations. Broadus is synonyms for preaching based on the informed interpretation of scripture. Rather than dwell on a system of doctrines to defend the Bible from those who might criticize it, Broadus chose to preach and proclaim the experience of Jesus Christ by explaining the real meaning of the biblical text so that anyone could understand and appreciate it.
