John Albert Broadus (1827–1895) was an American Baptist pastor and professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, one of the most famous preachers of his day. Charles Spurgeon deemed Broadus the “greatest of living preachers.” Church historian Albert Henry Newman later said “perhaps the greatest man the Baptists have produced.”

"Doctor John Albert Broadus’s personal character, accurate scholarship, original thinking, marvelous preaching, matchless teaching, great wisdom, rare personal influence, breadth of view, high ideals, and earnest piety, mark him as one of the foremost products of American manhood, one of the ripest fruits of modern Christianity. The high praise here given will seem sober truth to the multitudes who felt the joyous touch of his personal power and will be amply justified to those who knew him not by the life story here unfolded." – A. T. Robertson, from the Preface
